At ICON we have consistently achieved exceptional results for our clients and our role is to maximise your exit value by getting you the best deal the market has to offer.

This requires:

  • Extensive knowledge of the global acquirers
  • Exceptional knowledge of deal structures
  • Negotiation expertise
  • Deal expertise
  • Great advice

ICON has the global reach, the knowledge and network to help you maximize value on your sale.

Our clients appoint us because we have:

1. Commitment and energy

We are an independently owned business whose fee structures are primarily success driven, so we are highly motivated by success.

2. Industry knowledge

We have been specialist advisers in the technology sector since 1999 and have built deep industry relationships.

3. Knowledge of acquirers

We have built a significant bespoke database of M&A activity in the sector. Most importantly, we have the experience and creativity to identify which acquirers will be “strategic” and hence prepared to pay a premium.

4. Global reach

We approach acquirers directly wherever they are located in the world.

5. Deal expertise

There is no substitute for experience. Not just in negotiating a deal but also advising on deal structures, legal documentation, employment contracts, tax and other issues that arise during the process. We offer a hands-on, personal service.  Our deal teams are led by partners, not junior investment bankers.  Each partner has over 15 years of experience in tech.
