M&A and Transaction Support
Environmental issues have long been seen as a potentially material consideration during corporate and real estate transactions.
Traditionally, this has focused on qualifying liability risks such as land contamination and potential operational costs associated with Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) compliance.
More recently, the areas of interest have broadened, to include an organisation’s readiness to respond to climate change and other Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) challenges.
Our clients increasingly seek to identify ESG-related opportunities, and on the sell side, we support more focused efforts to prepare businesses for sale and to highlight their ESG credentials and the accompanying narrative.
The Anthesis transaction services team understands the process, pace, and language of transactions
The team has decades of experience working with both acquirers and vendors across M&A and real estate transactions. That experience spans pre-sale, the transaction process and post transaction phases, and working for both corporate clients and investors.
Anthesis has also applied its transactions understanding to the evaluation of other transaction types, such as investments in listed equities and debt and, combined with our ESG strategy expertise, to pre-IPO support to businesses.
