Consulting & Professional advisory services

At Novasigma we believe the best way to consult our new clients is to have a confidential face-to-face meeting.

We recommend consultation for all of our new clients before starting any incorporation process, investing funds in business projects or startups, selling your business or private holdings. Our typical clients are company owners, directors and start-up company founders but also wealthy individuals and families. With the years of experience, we know what needs to be done on every stage of growing or starting a new business.

Due diligence process

Due diligence is the process by which business owners conduct a business, legal, and financial investigation of a company in preparation for a possible sale transaction. While company owners and management can adequately perform business due diligence, a company should consider engaging outside financial and legal advisers to conduct its financial and legal due diligence. Such investigations are time consuming, may be overwhelming, and vary greatly depending upon the nature and form of a potential transaction. Legal advisers can make available a variety of services to assist a client with selling its business.

Novasigma highly recommends Due Diligence in case:

  • Before business owners seeking to sell their companies
  • Before applying funding from banks or private investors
  • Before buying a company or business (due diligence process for a target company)
  • Before Investing in business (due diligence process for a target company)
  • Before starting an offshore restructuring process
  • Before starting a corporate bank account opening process

Business Restructuring - Offshore entities

Sometimes it becomes imperative to restructure a business. This may be due underperformance and changes in market conditions and legalities, or a new business strategy. Restructuring can help a business move forward in a format that best suits its growth strategy. We have observed a substantial increase in clients requiring offshore companies in cross-border restructurings. The need of offshore companies in restructurings is most often driven by tax, business structuring, and succession concerns.

Whatever the situation, business restructuring requires the same rigorous compliance accuracy as company formation.

Exit strategy and IPO

Almost 80% of small business owners think “going into retirement” is when they should start pulling together their exit strategy, according to the Center for Women’s Business Research. (The study polled both men and women.) But every business broker and small business expert will tell you to start planning earlier. Much earlier.

The primary reason: The value of your business is best maximized when you’ve spent years preparing for the exit. Mergers and IPOs are two exit transactions that can increase the value of your company before you leave it.

Common exit strategies involve:

  • Finding the right buyer
  • An initial public offering (IPO) on a public stock exchange (for example, TSX, NASDAQ)
  • A merger and acquisition (M&A) with a player in your sector. The acquisition can be either for cash, stock or a combination of both.
  • Licensing

Our process will cover managing the due diligence process, using advisors effectively, negotiating and getting to closing, avoiding pitfalls, and structuring a tax-efficient sale. Life After the Deal will discuss estate and tax planning considerations, how to handle personal wealth issues effectively after the sale, and how to handle the effects of various exit strategies.
