Business Acquisitions and Funding

Competition is tough in the water quality industry, and it’s only getting tougher. The “big” branded players, especially, have the critical mass to eat into the business you’ve so carefully built. This can make expanding your business through acquisition your best bet for continued success. Yet the risks are high. You may have the needed capital, but do you have the expertise to manage an acquisition effectively? That’s where SEAS comes in. We’ve acquired water quality companies ourselves, and we can leverage our experience to help you get it right. Rely on SEAS to:

  • Valuate your existing business and targeted acquisition, and accurately project the combined entity’s total value
  • Recommend the strategy and define the process for due diligence in purchasing the company
  • Perform gap analysis to determine what additional investments will be required to ensure that business processes, personnel systems, inventories, and financial controls are sufficient to meet the needs of the combined business
  • Determine the right metrics for regularly assessing the combined business’s performance
  • Provide experienced guidance and assistance throughout the acquisition process

We now hold equity in multiple companies in this market.
