ational Capital’s advisory experience spans many industries and transaction types. We specialize in advising and assisting clients in connection with mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and business valuations. We also provide general financial advisory services, including fairness opinions, restructurings and holding company formations.
At National Capital, we tailor our approach to each client's specific needs. Accordingly, we commit substantial up-front time and effort identifying the client’s objectives, evaluating the client’s business and developing a strategy to meet the client’s goals. In each of our engagements, we become quite knowledgeable about our client’s business and the industry in which it operates. In business valuation assignments, this approach allows us to accurately assess “value drivers” and effectively evaluate both company and industry risks. In a transaction environment, our comprehensive understanding of a client’s business allows us to skillfully discuss their company and negotiate on their behalf with prospective buyers.
Our team members have complementary backgrounds and talents, including business management, accounting and financial consulting. These resources, coupled with our extensive corporate, industry and economic databases, provide National Capital with the skills, information and analytic tools needed to evaluate and execute complex financial transactions.
Regardless of the type of assignment, the principals and employees of National Capital pledge to perform our services with the highest level of ethics, integrity, confidentiality and professionalism.
