Mergers & Acquisitions – Buy Side

Cabrillo Advisors has the expertise you need to develop your acquisition strategy and identify the most promising acquisition candidates and close the right deal. We work collaboratively with our clients and have the skills/resources to serve as a true member of the team, rather than an “outside advisor.”

Our dedicated and experienced professionals are able to leverage their strategy consulting experience (McKinsey & Co., Mars & Co.) to assess the industry landscape, identify attractive sectors, target companies of interest, engage sellers/prospects in initial conversations, and ultimately lead an acquisition process.
