Sell-side M&A

Our advisory team will work with you to develop and execute an exit plan for your business. Whether your company’s leadership is just beginning to explore a sale or you have an offer on the table, Drake Star’s sell-side M&A expertise will guide you through each step of the process. With over 70% of our sell-side M&A transactions taking place across borders, we specialize in connecting successful entrepreneurs with the best exit opportunities the world has to offer.


Buy-side M&A

Buy-side M&A can be a key catalyst of business growth and a way to consolidate your company’s market position. Whether you’ve already identified a target and are ready to facilitate the transaction, or you’re seeking strategic guidance on expanding your portfolio, Drake Star offers a customized approach to help you achieve your business objectives.


Growth Financing

Growth financing can accelerate the growth of even the most successful businesses. Drake Star’s investment professionals will offer expert advice and transaction support to help your business secure growth financing. In a market environment where capital is plentiful, it’s vital to have an experienced partner on your side to identify the strategic investors best aligned with your company’s objectives.


Dual Track

The dual-track process allows for far greater flexibility when considering your exit strategy. Initial Public Offering (IPO) or a sale to another company can each offer strong benefits. Drake Star can manage each step of the process and help your business navigate the common pitfalls and create a competitive process to deliver the best outcome for entrepreneurs and their stakeholders.


SPAC Advisory

Drake Star has a track record of success with advising special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) and their sponsors. From formation and identifying targets to negotiating a definitive agreement and completing the business combination, the Drake Star team is ready to advise SPACs and their prospective targets at each step of the process.


Debt/Venture Debt

For businesses with strong and reliable cash flow, debt financing offers an opportunity to operate and grow without diluting existing shareholders. Drake Star offers expert advice on the wide array of options available to businesses seeking additional operating leverage. Our collaborative approach ensures your business secures the loans and credit it needs on the most favorable terms.
