ANI has compiled an impressive record of successfully consummated projects not only in the Northwest but nationally and internationally as well. Typical transaction sizes range from $3 million to $40 million in value. The majority of projects are manufacturing companies with the balance being in distribution and service companies in a broad range of industries.
Upon committing to a client's sell-side project, ANI thoroughly analyzes the client's company, including its strengths and weaknesses, product lines, markets, competitors, and the industry in general. Historical financials are recast to reflect maximum profitability and forecasts are then reviewed. While preparing a powerful, comprehensive offering memorandum, ANI begins researching for strategic and synergistic candidates,
whether industry buyers or financial buyers. While utilizing its own research capabilities, ANI extensively extends its worldwide reach by utilizing their AICA associates around the globe. ANI eliminates unqualified buyers and avoids bargain seekers, the goal always being to ascertain the most appropriate buyer and to create a proper level of competition in the bidding process.
Whether a buy-side or sell-side assignment, ANI remains involved in every phase of the process from the initial research, through the stages of discussions and negotiations, to preparing letter of intents and assisting legal and accounting counsel with the closing procedures. As a skillful facilitator, ANI acts as a buffer to reduce the strain that often arises during negotiations and provides tactical advice during each step.
