Electronic Payments Industry / Financial Technologies
SilverStream Advisors focus on the electronic payments industry is twofold. First, the financial technologies market is rapidly growing and evolving. This presents an abundance of opportunities and challenges for businesses attempting to succeed in this space. SilverStream Advisors believe our industry experience, when combined with our corporate strategic capabilities, positions us as an invaluable asset for companies looking to succeed in this market. Second, we have developed an expertise in this field and our principals can provide a specialized and unique perspective on M&A transactions, and business development in general, in this market.
M&A Advisory and Payment Consulting
SilverStream Advisors serve as both advisors and consultants for companies looking to execute on any number of corporate strategic transactions and initiatives. SilverStream draws on experience valuing, buying and selling businesses to develop strategies and growth initiatives designed to position companies to attain the highest possible transaction value. Typical engagements begin with a review of our clients’ business objective, growth strategies and related product and partnership approaches. Engagements often culminate in the classic auction process for the sale of a business entity or assets. SilverStream Advisors also provide strategic guidance and counsel to buyers participating in such auctions. As well, we advise clients on the purchase side and sale side of direct negotiated transactions. Other strategic transactions may include raising debt or equity to fund existing business, fuel organic growth and/or growth through acquisitions.
All of these events can be viewed as potential exit strategies for business owners. We view exit planning as a critical part of our services. We engage directly with our clients to identify exit goals. We then work with each of our clients to achieve the revenue, profitability, growth rate or related metrics that are needed to realize those exit goals. Our team has decades of experience advising companies in exactly these types of transactions.
Middle Market Companies
SilverStream Advisors focus on what we believe to be “middle market” companies for many reasons. It is our model to develop deep relationships as advisors to entrepreneurs who have exhibited the ability to succeed and who are ready to capitalize on that success. SilverStream Advisors further believe this to be an under-serviced area of the market and one in which the companies can use the most advice and counsel. Our goal is to develop a level of trust and comfort with the companies’ executives to be viewed as an additional member of the management team as the company continues to grow.
