“A successful negotiation relies on mutual respect, and clear data that stands up to the strictest scrutiny……”
- Daniel Fah, CEO Strategic
At CEO Strategic, we know how much real blood, sweat and tears goes into building a business of any significance.

And we can show you how by using our proprietary reporting system MagniFi to reflect the true value of your company, you can often significantly improve your negotiating position.
Due Diligence-Ready Guidance
Once you’ve identified a possible suitor, or decided to go out to the market, we can show you how to rapidly speed up the sales process by helping you create a detailed ‘Due Diligence Data Room’ that encapsulates all the required reports and relevant documents you’ll be needing, which can often serve to comply with governance issues, reassure buyers and even have a material effect on the final value of a sale.
Seeking Mergers and Acquisitions?
If you have identified a merger or acquisition as a potential pathway to growth, we can assist you with identifying potential targets, undertaking pre-due diligence, providing in-depth reporting & modelling that will reveal the true state of your target’s finances, advice on merging or cleaning up legacy reporting systems, identify and eliminate costly operating practices, or assist you with raising the required capital from various finance sources. We can also assist with providing advice on optimum tax and compliance structures.
Once you’ve completed your M&A project, we can also assist you with your internal and external Corporate Communications or Brand-building, if required. A well-constructed Corporate Communications program is vital when seeking buy-in from all stakeholders in any new venture, whether it be your financiers, directors, staff, suppliers, industry media, or customers.
Target of a Mergers and Acquisitions?
Alternatively, if you find yourself the target of an acquisition (friendly or otherwise) we can provide a menu of essential services including financial assessment and due-diligence of any potential suitor, financial modelling around potential restructures, and most importantly, assist you with any negotiations to ensure any changes are in the best interest of all parties.
