The professionals in our practice have many years of business valuation and corporate finance experience with companies in every major industrial sector and size to deliver superior results for private technology companies in Silicon Valley.

Sell side Representation
We help companies pursuing a sale or merger involving all or part of their business, as well as organizations interested in partial divestitures of a division or assets. We provide end-to-end strategic advisory, introducing the company to potential acquirers and managing a rigorous process to optimize competition, achieve strategic valuations, and successfully close transactions.

Buy side Representation
Armanino represents clients pursuing strategic acquisitions, such as asset purchases, mergers, and intellectual property procurements. Our financial advisory includes market analyses, target identification, financial modeling, deal negotiations, preliminary due diligence, and final negotiation of the definitive agreements.

Intellectual Property and Patent Sales
Armanino is among Silicon Valley’s most experienced financial advisory firms for technology companies that seek to monetize assets including intellectual property (IP). Our professionals have extensive histories and experience with small and mid-cap technology companies, and we have conducted numerous transactions since our founding in 1987.

Armanino has developed and perfected our Auction90 asset sale process, designed to complete a competitive auction for identified company assets and IP within 90-120 days from engagement. The process is fast and effective at concluding a transaction and maximizing value because it is highly structured and creates a sense of urgency for buyers that otherwise would be lacking in a typical asset sale.

Armanino has done more than 3000 technology company valuations and is the best Silicon Valley resource for understanding technology assets, valuing them, and then articulating that value to potential buyers. The same team of finance professionals that has completed the valuations is instrumental in the Auction90 process. For most IP or asset sales Armanino is well positioned to deliver maximum value.

Purchaser Representative Services
A Purchaser Representative may be necessary in merger and acquisition transactions where the consideration is not all cash, but includes securities that are not registered with the SEC.

Purchaser Representatives are regularly retained to help with compliance with securities law to represent non-accredited shareholders in a merger or acquisition where the consideration consists at least partially of restricted stock.

Armanino regularly acts as purchaser representative, enjoying the opportunity to help unaccredited investors to navigate and understand sometimes complex transactions with hundreds of pages of agreements in a multitude of disclosure documents that today’s mergers produce in the interest of compliance and informing investors.
