Finquest helps you identify suitable investors for your fundraising, and/or acquirers to prepare for your partial/total exit.
At Finquest, we effectively connect mid-sized Asia-based companies to potential investors, strategic buyers and new opportunities. We help larger multinational companies get better connected to access investment, acquisition and divestitures across Asia-Pacific. Finquest also specifically addresses the needs of Tech companies for their Series B (and beyond) financing round(s).
When it comes to fuelling growth, mid-sized companies often see the need to look beyond the banking sector when sourcing external financing. Such financing often requires the use of debt, equity and hybrid financing techniques, as well as access to different investor types such as private equity funds, family offices investment holdings strategic acquirers and ultra-high net worth individuals.
Finquest has privileged access to a wide range of investors and experts who can help entrepreneurs and CEOs raise capital and reach their goals.
SEEK AN EXIT
Entrepreneurs and business owners seek partial, progressive, or total exits for reasons that can include succession planning, retirement, or industry dynamics that favour local or regional consolidation.
Through Finquest, CEOs and business owners of mid-sized companies can connect with investors, strategic buyers, and expert advisors through curated and confidential introductions.
Inorganic growth through acquisitions, investments and joint-ventures can be an effective strategy for mid-sized companies seeking to expand their business. That said, the market gets increasingly fragmented into smaller deal sizes and increasing geographical scope. This makes it more challenging to effectively identify relevant targets.
Finquest scans multiple Asian markets and connects mid-sized companies to suitable potential acquirers or joint-venture partners on a confidential basis.
Fast Growing Tech Companies (e.g., Internet, Healthcare, Fintech) may take 3 or 4 years to reach Series A (most often with a local investor), but only 1 year to close a Series B, and just a few more months to reach Series C. Those Series B and above rounds tend to require a more global investor access. Having a timely and targeted access to relevant investors on a global scale can make a huge difference.
Finquest connects you with targeted VC funds, Strategic investors and non-traditional institutional investors like Family Offices or Investment Holdings.
LOOK FOR ACQUISITIONS / MERGERS
Industry consolidation happens in the Tech industry as well. It may make a lot of sense for a young and fast growing company to acquire or merge with another small and highly differentiated start-up.
Finquest helps you be on the lookout, and proactively search for acquisition targets that fit with your goals.
SEEK AN EXIT
Most exits are driven by Strategic buyers that are eager to enter a new space or to acquire new capabilities. Identifying the needs of Strategics at any point in time is a daunting task, even for a rather “mature” innovative company.
Finquest can filter down and connect you with select Multinational Companies or potential buyers looking at your space.
IDENTIFY ACQUISITION TARGETS
Enlarging a business geographical footprint via acquisitions or Joint Ventures is a great objective, but a hard one to reach when looking at the diversity of countries and languages in Asia.
Finquest helps Multinational Companies scan various Asian markets and build connections with interested parties.
Some Multinational Companies have been operating for 15 or 20 years in a given geography and may decide to divest a subsidiary or a division because their portfolio strategy has changed, or because another shareholder would be better suited to operate the business.
Finquest identifies and connects you with the right potential buyers, whether PE funds, Strategic, Investment companies, or Family Offices with expertise in your space.
Multinational Companies are now directing their attention to acquisitions or minority investments in the digital or high tech space, as a way to learn or integrate innovation within their existing business lines. Accessing Asian markets and innovative young companies can be a key long-term differentiator.
Finquest can connect you with select digital/innovation related opportunities via direct access to companies and Venture Capital funds.
