PE Sector Strategy
In PE sector strategy projects, we review sector characteristics and the status quo of a particular market niche to validate the attractiveness of this segment for a structured private equity investment approach.
We develop investment theses surrounding future platform investments in this sector, the fit of the M&A landscape to the fund’s prerequisites, and eventually validate the potential for superior returns given the trends and developments within a particular market.
We also review the M&A reservoir of actionable assets in the sector, followed by a first assessment of likely value creation levers post a platform acquisition.
So-called Pre-Due Diligence Assessments often serve as the basis for any successful long-term engagement of a Private Equity investor in a particular technology market niche. Telescope herein assesses the current trends, drivers, customer demands, as well as competitive dynamics in a sector before deciding to enter (future) competitive M&A auctions in the field.
The pre-DD work allows investors to understand the environment in which a potential target resides, creating a competitive advantage in today’s fast-paced transaction processes.
We help funds develop sector knowledge beyond simply available data by conducting significant numbers of interviews with stakeholders in selected market niches that create real-time insights on a market.
Commercial Due Diligence
The bankable Commercial Due Diligence is Telescope’s signature advisory service. We have served as deal advisors on hundreds of transactions with a focus on understanding a target’s competitive position, hidden potential, attractiveness in the light of market trends and drivers, as well as the ability to continuously introduce innovative products and solutions.
As a leading European advisory firm recognized for our sector expertise in technology sectors such as IT, Software, Next-Gen Infrastructure, and tech-enriched services, we provide clients with access to insights and benchmarks tailored to these fast-developing industries.
Tech Due Diligence
In technology due diligence (“Tech-DD”) projects, we assess the product development processes and application landscape, the digital product architecture, the product’s performance as well as the IT/product-organization.
The tech due diligence is being applied in buy-side M&A transactions of software companies, digital tech start-ups and tech-enabled product companies.
Our approach is based on a three-step concept of review, challenge and develop.
ESG Due Diligence
The importance of sustainability is constantly rising and can help businesses to expand their corporate social responsibility. It is designed to be in keeping with environmental, economic and social outcomes.
Environmental, Social and Governmental Due Diligence involves the identification and evaluation of environmental and social risks associated with a proposed investment.
