1. Technology sector track record – we have the contacts
We have built ICON into a market leader by applying our unrivalled transaction expertise, sector knowledge and collective track record to help our clients succeed. We also pro-actively work at developing relationships at the highest levels within the investment communities and global M&A acquirers.
2. Negotiation and tactical skill in deal structuring and execution
The skill and expertise of the adviser you choose will be a major success factor determining whether your deal is successful. At ICON our tech sector focus means we have a deep knowledge of industry specific deal structures, comparable market valuations and key relationships with investors and active acquirers. We also know the processes used to make decisions, all of which enables us to maximise value for our clients, and ensure they are properly represented to both maximize deal success and shareholder value. Negotiation and tactical positioning is key to delivering the deal.
3. World class sector knowledge, market intelligence and know how
We have expansive in-depth market knowledge. Many generalist advisers have a very narrow field of expertise, but as ICON acts exclusively for technology companies we have the knowledge of deal structures, valuations and existing relationships with both the investors base and active global acquirers. Our track record demonstrates our success with deals completed to date with some of the world’s leading VCs and major international corporations.
4. Agile dedicated award winning team
Success can be about who you know. ICON’s corporate culture rewards results, agility, creativity and collaboration and our fee structure is success based which means we only hire the best. People really do make the difference and all senior employees at ICON are shareholders in the firm and are personally responsible for contributing to the growth and on going success of our clients; and when ICON’s clients succeed we do too.
5. Global reach, access to top VCs and the most active strategic acquirers
Our access to top VCs and most active strategic acquirers means we already have the key relationships and the “in” needed to fast track your deal.
