Barons Capital Partners advises a wide range of clients from major Public Companies and Private Equity firms to Family-Owned Companies and their Shareholders, including family offices.
We advise clients on Mergers & Acquisitions and other facets of investment banking and corporate finance, including Fund-Raising (Equity and Debt), Management Buy-Outs and Buy-Ins, Strategic Business Reviews, Valuations, Turnarounds and Restructurings.
Our clients benefit from our highly discreet and confidential personal service, transactional heritage and deep understanding of global cross-border transactions.
We have amassed an enviable network of industry contacts throughout Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, The Commonwealth of Independent States, The Americas, The Middle East and Southern Africa, as well as Australasia.
Barons Capital Partners operates across a wide spectrum of industry sectors but has particular expertise in six core sectors:
- AIRLINES, AEROSPACE & AVIATION
- DEFENCE AND SECURITY
- ENGINEERING, MANUFACTURING AND MINING
- TECHNOLOGY AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS
- MEDICAL DIAGNOSTICS
- INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION
Barons Capital Partners are not just investment banking advisers. Our senior team is comprised of entrepreneurs, industry leaders and investment bankers with experience gained in public and private companies, start-ups, restructurings and turnarounds. We have the commercial understanding and lateral thinking that can only be acquired through hands-on experience, so we understand transactions from our clients’ perspectives.
We provide not only investment banking advice. Our team of transaction professionals is not constrained by being a small part of a large financial institution with many competing interests, or by being a public company with institutional shareholders. We are independent, unbiased and have our own network of industry contacts.
Our size and structure enables us to deliver a highly personalised service. Our clients know that we operate with absolute confidentiality, and transparency as their adviser. Our deliberate low profile allows us to operate with absolute discretion, something larger investment banks and other financial institutions can find hard to do, and which is highly-prized by clients and is often a critical driver of the success of their transactions.
We focus on international transactions and our understanding of the key environmental, linguistic and cultural influences and subtleties plays a vital role in bringing transactions to a successful conclusion. In addition, our network of connections stretches worldwide, from key decision makers in leading multinational corporations, through a web of Private Equity and Venture Capital Investors, to many Family Offices and High-Net-Worth Individuals.
In the search for growth, public companies are constantly examining acquisition and divestment opportunities on a segmental and geographic basis and we have a significant track record of providing advice to such organisations. We pride ourselves in our wide network of relationships that our team has developed over many years with key decision makers in many of the leading companies operating in our specialist areas. Our continual interaction with top management enables us to quickly identify optimal solutions for our clients, such as potential acquirers, appropriate acquisition opportunities or the best long-term strategic partners. As with private companies, we are able to support smaller organisations by providing them with a virtual in-house M&A capability for a period of time or for a specific transaction.
PRIVATE EQUITY FIRMS
We have extensive experience in providing private equity firms with advice and assistance on both Buy- and Sell-side transaction opportunities. Acknowledging the expertise resident in most Private Equity firms, our services can range from the simple introduction of opportunities, through the development of value-enhancing deal concepts and ideas to sector-specific advice involving the identification of potential targets or solutions and comprehensive support to M&A transactions.
PRIVATE AND FAMILY-OWNED COMPANIES
Our team has set up, run and sold private companies. Consequently we understand the issues and complexities involved in dealing with firms which may have been in family ownership for generations. We take the time to listen, assess and understand the relevant issues, objectives and dynamics which can be complex. Our work for private companies typically involves the provision of strategic reviews or comprehensive M&A support to make bolt-on acquisitions, raise growth capital or provide a full or partial exit for the owners.
HIGH-NET-WORTH INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILY OFFICES
We have significant experience in supporting High-Net-Worth Individuals and their Family Offices. This typically involves the introduction of appropriate investment opportunities or providing M&A support for the sale of a particular portfolio company or the acquisition of suitable businesses to enhance value.
As a result of our extensive transactional experience and the broad operational backgrounds of our team and our specialist advisers, Barons Capital Partners are able to provide our clients with comprehensive advice and assistance across a wide number of industry sectors. However we have particularly in-depth sector knowledge in the following areas:
Airlines, Aerospace & Aviation
Defence and Security
Engineering, Manufacturing and Mining
Technology and Telecommunications
