Situation:

A nationally known private equity (PE) firm specializing in the life science industry needed help evaluating a life sciences tools and reagents company for possible acquisition. The PE firm recognized the value of gaining the insight and expertise of life science industry professionals like Kineticos. They relied on us to help them with the commercial due diligence.

Process:

Kineticos conducted a full market assessment and provided associated reports in a tight timeframe including customer, competitor and product gap analysis. We also provided a market expansion strategy for global distribution.

Outcome:

Kineticos’ research and analysis helped the private equity company arrive at the appropriate market and investment value, which was below the seller’s threshold. The work we provided established a real market value for both the PE firm and the life sciences tools and reagents company. Rather than lowering their value expectations, the life science tools and reagents company decided not to sell.
