As the lead financial and transaction advisor to the country’s top coffee solutions provider, CFP advised its client in successfully entering into a strategic partnership with a well-known international coffee company. The deal allowed the client to accelerate its business expansion and provided the company’s founders with an ideal exit strategy. The client is the exclusive distributor in the Philippines of premium coffee machines, coffee beans, syrups, sauces, teas and related high-quality products. It also delivers topnotch after-sales service support through its team of trained and experienced technicians. CFP gave an independent opinion on the value of the client’s business, prepared the investor’s brief, helped the selling shareholders negotiate with the buyer, and prepared legal documentation for the share purchase and joint venture agreements. With the entry of an international partner that does business in 20 countries across Europe and Asia under a balanced deal structure and reasonable shared management arrangement, the company is now in a stronger financial and competitive position to expand to other coffee-related businesses and new markets.
