The language services market today is driving a lot of strategic M&A transactions. We talk to business owners every day who are considering buying or selling, and we know the pace is picking up. At Lion People, we are vested in understanding the big picture and building solid business relationships, and we have gained deep insights into decision-maker perspectives and motivations.

Ready to buy or sell?

You’re looking for companies in the language services market that meet your requirements. The search can be time-consuming, and you want your efforts to go towards opportunities with the highest probability of turning into a successful deal. If you’re short of time, let us do the hard work for you. We’ll shortlist client company candidates that score the highest match to your unique buyer/seller profile. And we’ll only facilitate introductions when we’re confident the process will lead to a Letter of Interest (LOI).

We’ll take into account every aspect that may have a bearing on the success of the introduction. Confidentiality is as important to us as it is to you. No information will be disclosed to other parties without your explicit consent.

Need some general M&A advice?

Whether you’re buying or selling, we have a team of professionals to help you close the deal. We’re not accountants, lawyers or certified valuators – but we have hands-on executive experience from the field and a unique insight into the psychology of navigating the M&A process, keeping things on an even keel and reaching a win-win agreement.

If your leadership team requires specific advice, mediation or logistical support during your decision-making process to firm up the deal, we’re here to help. Our M&A Advisory services include:

  • Pre-Letter of Intent (LOI) – management meeting preparation and facilitation
  • Post Letter of Intent (LOI) – due diligence preparation and execution
  • Post Letter of Intent (LOI) – deal structuring advice

Post-Closing Integration

After closing the deal, buyers face the challenge of smoothly completing the integration process while getting to grips with business as usual and building confidence with clients. At Lion People Global, we understand the effort involved and know that the devil is in the detail.

If you’re going through this for the first time, you might welcome support to build an integration framework. We know that this push can take a toll on your internal team’s bandwidth, but you can rely on us for advice and practical help. Our post-closing integration services include:

  • 30-60-90 Day plan – Core Modules
  • Execution of one or several operational modules
  • Integration objectives and KPIs beyond financials
  • Organizational development needs
