Introduction

Dedicated Focus on Chemicals, Ingredients, Materials and Minerals: Trumont is an independent strategic and financial advisory firm with an exclusive focus on four sectors. In chemicals, our industry expertise spans the entire value chain from petrochemicals and intermediates to specialty and fine chemicals as well as associated verticals such as agrochemicals and synthetic materials. Additionally, Trumont covers providers of value-added services to these industries.

Highly Experienced Team: Our team has over 150 years of multi-disciplinary M&A, operating, strategy consulting and financing experience at leading chemical companies and investment banks. Each senior professional has in excess of 20 years of chemicals-specific experience. We have specialized insight into industry-specific issues in a transaction such as raw material value chains/contracts, shared manufacturing sites, allocation of environmental liability, retirement obligations and carve-out costs.

Consistent Senior Attention: Assignments are led by our senior professionals and project teams typically have 50+ years of dedicated chemicals expertise. We do not entirely delegate transaction execution to junior professionals.

Extensive Network of Contacts with Key Decision Makers: We are in contact with nearly 1,000 CEOs and key decision makers across the landscape of our focus sectors. Our relationships with key decision makers and industry knowledge give us a superior advantage in connecting vendors and acquirers of businesses to create "win-win" outcomes.

Unique Advisory Approach covering Strategic Due Diligence and M&A: By virtue of its deep industry expertise, Trumont has a unique business model where it can function as a strategy consultant and an M&A advisor. We offer both M&A advice and strategic due diligence services to financial sponsors.

Experience in Servicing a Diverse Client Base: We have supported a diverse array of clients with different shareholder and stakeholder objectives on a spectrum of transactions. We have served private (both founder-managed and family-held), public, private equity-owned and creditor-owned companies on transactions in a broad range of enterprise values.

Bespoke, Impartial and Independent Advice: Trumont provides customized, honest, unbiased and objective industry-focused advice that is unaffected by lending or investing conflicts-of-interest. Post-deal value enhancement for our clients is a cornerstone of our approach.

International Reach: With offices in London and New York, Trumont has a particular focus on serving companies in Europe and North America. We have also supported clients on assignments in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and South America.
