Services: Chemicals, Ingredients, Industrial Minerals and Materials Companies

Trumont's approach is highly customized and confidential. We have worked with several world class chemical companies on strategic planning and development as well as M&A transactions.

Strategic Planning and Special Advisory

Trumont's deep industry expertise enables us to deliver insightful, experienced and analytical advice on corporate development issues to "C" suite and board-level decision-makers, including:

  • Portfolio reviews and strategic alternatives.
  • Growth strategy appraisals.
  • Acquisition searches.

Additionally, Trumont has provided valuation opinions to private companies and assisted in evaluating and structuring joint ventures and partnering alliances.

Sell-Side Advisory

Our core focus is to assist owners (including families and founders) in maximizing shareholder value in confidential and carefully-managed sale processes. Trumont has additional experience with carve-outs and sales of divisions and business units by parent companies (both public and private).
We leverage our deep understanding of the chemical and related industries to specialize in:

  • Preparing and positioning the investment story.
  • Identifying and quickly accessing synergistic strategic and financial investors at the highest levels.
  • Obtaining and evaluating indicative offers.
  • Structuring Letters of Intent / Memoranda of Understanding.
  • Managing next phase due diligence.
  • Negotiating definitive legal documentation and achieving closure (completion).

Buy-Side Advisory

In advising acquirers and assessing targets, Trumont functions as a combined M&A advisor and strategy consultant. Our distinctive strengths are:

  • Detailed understanding of more than 100+ sub-verticals within the chemicals sector enabling us to quickly get "early warning" of a transaction's critical drivers.
  • Ability to quickly isolate the critical value-drivers shaping commercial performance and strategic growth.
  • Senior-level attention: our professionals have seen the chemical and related industries evolve through several cycles and regulatory changes over 25+ years.
  • Understanding of chemical and associated sector-specific liabilities and risk allocation in transactions.

Trumont's buy-side advisory covers all aspects of initial evaluation, synergy estimation, non-binding offer preparation, second stage due diligence, negotiation of definitive agreements and closing mechanics.

If required, we also draw on the expertise of affiliated "vertical experts" on complex situations.
