Ridgecrest Advisors is an investment banking and business consulting firm dedicated to helping technology consulting firms dramatically increase enterprise value. We bring together world class expertise in M&A advisory, business consulting and financing services with a unique focus entirely on the technology consulting sector. The result is a compelling value proposition to our clients:
Deep Industry Knowledge:
We work exclusively with technology consulting firms and understand industry operating models at a granular level. We can quickly assess the strengths and weaknesses of consultancies and leverage that insight in our M&A, financing and business consulting engagements.
Unmatched Industry Relationships:
Our industry focus means we spend all of our time interacting with key decision makers at consultancies, building relationships, trust and knowledge of unique business and personal characteristics. These relationships dramatically improve speed and success rates in our M&A engagements.
Unsurpassed Industry Transaction Experience:
Our principals have completed over 70 transactions totaling well over $1 billion in value. We understand deeply the many nuances found in consultancy transactions and bring creative insight to find optimal solutions to deal challenges.
Senior Banker Execution & One-To-One Marketing:
The typical investment bank relies on mass email-driven and junior banker-led marketing approaches to M&A and financing efforts. In our model, all contact is made by a Managing Director-level banker and all marketing efforts are customized on a one-to-one basis based on the unique business needs and individual personalities of parties with whom we’ve built relationships over many years of industry focus.
Extensive Cross-Border Experience:
Our principals have worked on transactions involving companies in 15 countries around the world and understand the unique challenges and opportunities presented by cross-border transactions.
