M&A Advisory


Buy Side

While Ponterra’s primary focus is on the sell side and its related mandates, the company will undertake buy-side engagements. These are companies looking to enhance their value as they move to a subsequent sale and exit; or on behalf of a buyer who wants to make a very specialized and focused acquisition that is not in conflict with Ponterra’s sell-side activities.


The firm helps two or more mid-sized companies merge to create more value and maximize eventual exit value. The goal is to create a larger, more compelling entity better able to attract a larger field of potential buyers, and higher valuations for clients. Ponterra is known to advise clients not to engage in a particular transaction while it finds a more advantageous deal.

Sell Side

Ponterra’s main focus emphasizes sell-side mandates and maximizing exit values for its clients. Ponterra brings a breadth of experience to take a 360-degree look at the business to advise on changes that need to be made prior to any transaction and provides recommendations to meet the specific needs of its clients. The firm also executes other transactions, including taking companies private, mergers, acquisitions, corporate divestitures, management buy-outs, capital formations and recapitalizations.

Capital Formation

The firm helps select high-growth companies in their quests for professional rounds of equity investments and raising of capital from institutions. Most of the firm’s activities in this regard center on companies with whom the firm has long term business mentoring relationships, with a view to building value on the way to an exit advised by Ponterra.
