MSG Securities provides clients with unbiased advice regarding their strategies to reach their financial objectives. Advice is often sought before a transaction, and may be provided exclusive of transaction services. Such advice may relate to valuation, positioning the company for a transaction, the advisability of an acquisition and other strategic matters.
We independently assess the value of companies using several different approaches, including analyses of discounted cash flow, comparable capital formation and acquisition transactions and comparable publicly traded companies. The different perspectives of strategic vs. financial investors are taken into account. Our assessments are realistic because they are market driven and informed by our operating backgrounds. Clients sometimes engage us to advise on valuation enhancement strategies in advance of a transaction.
The U.S. has relaxed its IPO rules and made an IPO a more viable option. A late stage growth company seeking capital should consider an IPO. We can evaluate the possibility of an IPO in the U.S.; recommend the timing, valuation, and positioning of a proposed IPO; assist with introductions to and selection of appropriate underwriters; and identify other required outside advisors such as legal and accounting professionals.
