The Modern Holistic Impact M&A Advisory

Monolith Global Partners LLC provides a holistic hands-on and highly concentrated mergers and acquisitions solution for the middle market. As a boutique advisory firm, we have staked our reputation on successfully providing efficient, cost effective M&A service and support that we tailor to each of our unique clients. With leading industry professionals, Monolith is well prepared to address nearly every situation you may encounter while going through the M&A process. We have developed an end-to-end custom-tailored M&A solution, that provides our clients time to concentrate on their business as we concentrate on the M&A process for them. This personal touch only allows us to have a few clients at a time, but lets us build long-lasting relationships. We help manage the M&A process and we drive results built around the whole worth of your company.

The Monolith team has over  30 years of mergers and acquisitions, investment banking and financial services experience and have completed or been involved in over 20 domestic and foreign transactions. In those transactions, we provided broker-dealer services, legal support in drafting and negotiating letters of intent, purchase agreements and legal due diligence. Our team is engaged at the start  of each engagement by  developing the strategic M&A plan, targeting introduction, fielding investment bank teasers, to valuation, all due diligence and contract negotiations, and board approval presentations and integration planning. We have led deals ranging in size from $4M to $250M.

Our global deal experience has culminated in the completion of a domestic deal within three weeks of a signed letter of intent. International, Western Europe deals were a bit more involved with the UK being more familiar and German deals requiring stricter German code compliance.  Deals in Europe, UK and Germany were all successfully completed meeting the internal target acquisition timetable and all local country requirements. Brazil would be one of our most challenging experiences, where the language and culture presented hidden blocking issues.  We became familiar with the acquisition target in Brazil over several years and spent 9 months on the transaction, mainly becoming familiar with its unique tax and import/export regulations.

We have had our share of deals that have broken down with recalcitrant sellers or buyers, but we have closed most deals as planned. Most of the acquisitions we have been involved in have been accretive. Our team’s successful term negotiations have brought the rarity of our clients-us needing purchase reps and warranties insurance.

Monolith is adapting a new approach to the Mergers and accusations advisory space, by building an ecosystem that modernizes the fragmented M&A space. Our mission is to bring a transparent and efficient  M&A process and market place. We approach each relationship with the highest ethical standards.
