Utilising its close network, AHP Partners became aware of a consumer finance business that was now non-strategic for its parent. AHP Partners used its market intelligence to qualify the opportunity and identify who we believed would be the best-suited buyer for this business – should the parent wish to sell. AHP Partners presented a case to the potential bidder to make an approach for the portfolio. We made the requisite introductions and helped the parties negotiate confidentiality agreements. AHP Partners stayed close to the transaction, helping the parties through the various stages of the deal from facilitating the establishment of price, through due diligence, contract negotiation and migration planning

Sale of a sub-prime credit card business This transaction was very much a traditional sell-side mandate. We were engaged by the seller to perform a review of the current business and provide guidance on a potential disposal value for the business and assist their own hold versus sell analysis. We advised the seller on the market for such businesses and recommended a sales process to search for an appropriate buyer. We managed the sales process from preparation and distribution of marketing material through bid appraisal, due-diligence, contract negotiation and transition planning.
