Mergers and Acquisitions

At the right time, many companies will begin to look at M&A as a potential exit alternative or a way to grow their business. Having an experienced advisor help guide you through this process is critical. We provide beginning to end solutions from the initial prep and marketing work, to negotiations to final documents and transaction closure.

Our M&A services include:

  • Sellside Advisory - in our sellside mandates, we represent both public and private tech companies that are located in Canada.  We work with our clients from the very beginning of a sellside process to prepare marketing materials to show the company in the best light as well as target the right potential buyers.  From there, we do all the initial buyer reach-outs and manage all the early-stage discussions so you can focus on continuing to run your business.  Lastly we lead all negotiations with potential buyers to ensure the highest possible valuation and best terms are achieved.
  • Buyside Advisory - we represent Canadian technology companies looking to acquire other companies or international companies looking to acquire Canadian technology companies.  Similar to our sellside M&A, we like to be involved early and help our clients think through which companies to potentially acquire.  Sampford then manages all the outreach to the prospective targets and manages the whole sellside process from start to finish.
  • Fairness Opinions - for larger Canadian technology transactions, we provide full Fairness Opinions that assess the fairness of a transaction, the valuation and the transaction structure.

Our tech clients include companies from Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal as well as international clients looking to make a merger or acquisition of a Canadian tech company.
