How ACP adds value



Determine the current value of your business

Our valuations are prepared in accordance with CICBV Practice Standards. What sets our process apart is our commitment to identifying value-enhancing opportunities.

Discover value with a strategic review

Our strategic review allows you to discover, grow, and unlock the full potential of your business.

Secure financing to enhance your operations

We position your business in a way that maximizes competition amongst lenders and investors. Our process is optimized to secure financing on the best possible terms.

Fast-track growth with a strategic acquisition

Successful acquisitions are value-enhancing and de-risked. We combine valuation advice, creative structuring, astute negotiation tactics, and disciplined execution to close your acquisition on favourable terms.

Unlock liquidity without selling equity

Practical tax and estate planning, dividend recapitalizations, asset divestitures, and strategic partnerships can unlock value without selling equity.

Plan for succession, thoughtfully

Realize the value of your hard work and achieve a lasting legacy. We help you plan for succession while positioning future owners and managers for continued success.

Sell when you can, not when you have to

Selling your business for maximum value requires careful planning and preparation, often years in advance. We design and execute a competitive and tax-efficient process that is optimized for your objectives.

Private Equity

Transforming potential into prosperity

We employ a carefully calibrated framework to identify and evaluate investment opportunities. Our playbook for value creation utilizes a thoughtful mix of M&A expertise, operational perspective, industry best practices, and disciplined execution.
