Laird² represents sellers, buyers and investors in mergers and acquisitions transactions, joint ventures, and financings. The management team's extensive transaction history, industry relationships, and research capabilities ensure that before a transaction, clients are well informed about valuation, potential interested parties, the key stages in a transaction process, and the likely length of time to close a transaction.

Laird² is transaction-oriented but also maintains a number of "value-creation consulting" Board-level relationships, in which we work with companies and entrepreneurs for months or even years to help enhance their value. In these engagements/relationships, we review the company’s product offerings, the target client base and market opportunity (“runway”), competitive landscape, projected growth in the organization and management team, and financial performance, and present our findings on a quarterly basis.

Companies operating in the business information services sector share certain attractive fundamental business model attributes, including: recurring/subscription revenue, clients that view the information as "must have," operating leverage against a fixed cost structure (i.e., high gross margins), and the ability to use technology advances to enhance products and reach broader and deeper markets. These attributes continue to be attractive to buyers/investors in the current transactions market.

Our group combines deep industry experience with proven financial, research and negotiation skills. Over the past decade, Jed and Chris Laird have successfully helped over 50 entrepreneurs, management teams and financial backers to maximize value by focusing on the three (3) key stages of the transaction process: positioning the company through Offering Memorandum materials; on-site management presentations/due diligence; and negotiating and closing.

We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your company and its strategic initiatives.
