Grand Avenue Capital has provided investment banking services in many offshore environments; its experience includes managing engagements with private companies with revenues in excess of $USD 2 billion in Europe, Asia, Mexico and the Middle East. Our first offshore project included the sale of a German manufacturer in Hamburg in 1979. These assignments have included:
Private placements by financial investors into the foreign entity
Sale of the majority interest of the foreign entity
Financial planning advisory, strategic planning guidance and valuation for the foreign entities
Offshore assignments often involve a local financial advisor, accountant, legal adviser or shareholder who is familiar with the client and has identified a financial need where our services would be warranted. Often this party becomes part of the advisory team in providing investment banking services.
Grand Avenue Capital has had a working relationship with many offshore private equity investors in Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and the Middle East. Grand Avenue Capital has frequently sought out strategic investor partners from all over the world for possible investment in our clients.
If there is an offshore solution to a Grand Avenue Capital engagement, we are well equipped and experienced to provide one. We will think locally, but act locally and globally."
