In addition to the issues affecting value, we use our proprietary values and culture assessment tools and integration planning to help determine which structure best meets their needs.

Capital Raises

We help clients raise debt and equity capital of all kinds to facilitate growth, recapitalizations or other purposes that do not contemplate a change in control of the business. We understand that our clients’ purpose-driven companies have been built with care, so we’re mindful of finding the right values-aligned capital partners and structure for your transaction. EPOCH Pi provides tailored advice that will help you raise capital without compromising your company’s mission, vision and values.

Integrations

Change is complex. Research shows that 70% to 90% of business combinations fail to reach their original business and financial goals. The number one reason cited is a failed integration of the two businesses, and the number one reason integration fails is cultural incongruity. Our holistic integration process looks at various facets of the parties involved from core values and people philosophy to decision making, communication, and operational efficiencies and leads the parties to consider where differing philosophies and culture may be an impediment. We believe it is critical that integration planning and dialogue begin before a deal is signed and be a specific element in negotiating the letter of intent.

EPOCH Pi provides support for:

  • Pre-M&A Integration Planning

  • Post-M&A Integrations
