one of the transactions in Dubai, I was leading a $125 Million M&A deal
pertaining to a reputed real-estate finance company operating in MENA region
though the company at that time wasn’t making any prudent profits however,
leading from the front I devised my strategy from one of the finest quotes by Frank Zappa – (“Art is making something out of nothing, and selling it.”)
initially analyzing the fundamentals of the company’s positive aspects and
portfolio elaborated that with a profound investment strategic proposal a
positive outcome can be deduced.
Analyzing the Investment &
the company retained portfolios of real estate assets under the trading and
investments activities the market exhibited a non attracting behavior as the
current real estate market showed 13% reduction in overall investments. So in
order to precede further a successful devised approach towards transaction has
to be proposed, leading from the front I examined that the company holds a
prudent assets with a other activities approved by the regulators, which can be
utilized at the optimum level post acquisition.
this in view, I analyzed that the investors will be able to capitalize on the
opportunity for a successful and profitable acquisition. The Investment would
provide an opportunity for the investors to be part of this attractive and
growing industry with a high potential to succeed, which had delivered high
returns in a short period of time as the Company was not been fully focused
upon, the preceding year. On the other hand, the origination of other
businesses such as asset management, securities and commodity trading has
further enhanced the operations and profits post acquisition.
experienced that every transaction has a score value which has to be examined
and researched at a much focused scale. This transaction helped me understand
that every PE/VC or private investors examine the business model on different
scale while some customize, implement, and enforce an investment strategy based
on their specific needs. For my clients, I have deduced that for every transaction
a comprehensive research with proactive strategy can only layer on enhancements
that are supported by convincing evidence.
