3 The Alderman Sale Process 3 Due Diligence & Data Room Preparation Alderman & Company Capital ( Alderman ) conducts detailed preliminary due diligence, including review of all material contracts and documentation related to the Company ( Due Diligence ). The information collected through Due Diligence is compiled into a set of documents referred to as (the Data Room ). The Data Room is presented to select bidders during the sale process and is used by the buyer of the Company to conduct Due Diligence. Accordingly, the Data Room is comprehensive, and Alderman works with the Company and its attorneys and accountants to ensure that the Data Room is complete. Alderman s own Due Diligence includes a detailed assessment of the Company, including its business, strategic position within the aerospace and defense industries, competitive strengths and weaknesses, operations, management, assets, liabilities, financial condition, past performance, and likely future performance. Alderman s Due Diligence also includes extensive discussions with the client and management, and on-site due diligence, as necessary. Of note, many of our clients are now utilizing the services of Virtual Data Room providers, which offer secure internet-based data room hosting and enhance process efficiency, and can decrease the time required to complete the sale process. Development of Projections and Value Confirmation Based upon the information obtained during our preliminary Due Diligence, Alderman builds detailed financial models to value and/or confirm the value of the Company using three valuation methods: (1) Income; (2) Market; and (3) Replacement Cost. The income method valuation, commonly referred to as a discounted cash flow analysis, or DCF, is developed utilizing financial projections for the company. The market and replacement cost valuations are developed using Alderman s comprehensive proprietary database of recent transactions, as well as general experience and insight into current market conditions. Information Memorandum Drafting Based upon the information obtained during our Due Diligence and in generating the DCF, Alderman drafts a detailed Information Memorandum for use in marketing the Company. Content of the Information Memorandum includes, but is not limited to, a description and analysis of the Company s market, historical financial performance, competitive strengths, products and programs, customers, executive management, employees, facilities, and shareholder rationale for pursuing a transaction. The Information Memorandum also includes detailed five-year financial projections for the Company (used in constructing the DCF). Distribution of Executive Summaries and Information Memoranda Alderman develops a list of potential buyers who might find the Company attractive. Alderman manages the process of soliciting interest from potential buyers and distributing to them the Executive Summaries and Information Memoranda, pursuant to Confidentiality Agreements. Depending upon the goals and timing of the Client, the solicitation may be narrowed or expanded from an initial list of potential buyers. Alderman provides advice to the Client regarding the risks and benefits of expanding and narrowing the search for buyers.
4 The Alderman Sale Process 4 Solicitation of Non-Binding Bids Alderman manages the overall bidding process and advises the Company in regard to bidder screening and initial negotiations. Alderman communicates daily with the Company to update the Client on critical timely information, and we provide regular written reports to the Client regarding all bidding activity and in obtaining non-binding indications of interest from interested parties ( IOI ). Alderman advises the Company on the selection of 5-10 finalist bidders to be invited to tour the facilities of the Company, to attend a formal presentation made by management, and to be granted access to the Company s Data Room (or Virtual Data Room, as the case may be). Management Presentations & Buyer Preliminary Due Diligence Alderman assists the management team in the production of a formal presentation to be presented to the finalist bidders. We provide guidance and coaching to management, help them rehearse their presentations, and assist management in preparing for the most likely and most difficult questions and concerns that may be raised by potential buyers. Typically, a half day will be allocated for each of the bidders that are invited to attend the Management Presentations. Solicitation of Final Bids and Negotiation of Letter of Intent Alderman advises and assists the Client in requesting each bidder to submit a final bid following the last Management Presentation. Alderman provides extensive support to the Client in regard to negotiating the highest possible price, developing an optimal structure for the sale, and selecting the best overall final bid. In the event that non-cash consideration is used in the sale, Alderman advises the Client in regard to the risk adjusted value of said consideration. Alderman works with the Company s legal counsel in the negotiation and documentation of a letter of intent ( LOI ) for the sale of the company. Buyer Due Diligence, Structuring, Negotiations and Documentation Following execution of an LOI, Alderman assists the Client and their legal and accounting professionals in structuring the sale, managing the due diligence process, negotiating terms, and documenting the transaction. Approvals and Closing Alderman supports the Client and their legal and accounting professionals in the process of obtaining third party approvals, including bank consents, Hart-Scott-Rodino filings (if necessary), and the final closing of the transaction.
