Looking to make an acquisition? In an industry with more buyers than sellers, TSG has perfected a strategy to identify, qualify, and engage prospective owners that may be interested in selling their Payments enterprise. TSG provides options to assist buyers in meeting their acquisition objectives.
Looking to sell? TSG has a pulse on the market and performs an extensive assessment of value drivers to ensure that potential “sellers” understand the value of their company in the marketplace – prior to starting the sales process.
TSG will carefully curate a prospect list of proven buyers – that have the funds, deal experience, and bandwidth to close a deal.
Typical multiples range from 1X to 7X – reflecting the basic value components that make up the core value of any business – this illustrates why a structured valuation exercise is critical to pinpoint the value of a payments company
Do you know your value? TSG takes a "bottom up" approach analyzing the minutia of every merchant in the portfolio in order to accurately access its value. Conversely, others often take a top down approach, which is less specific.
Using a synthetic benchmark, clients can determine the relative performance of a portfolio vs. an identical synthetically derived benchmark comparison to precisely understand the relative strengths/weaknesses.
The recognized payment technology value historically has varied significantly, and without comprehensive payment platform knowledge, can be misunderstood or miss-calculated.
The value of the business is largely influenced by the projected growth which is driven by two components: 1) attrition of the base portfolio and 2) new merchant account production
