Fueling growth with M&A

Building a global leader in lithium battery sector with bolt-on acquisition strategy

The assignment

In 2017, Waveup was contacted by Company with a strong ambition: build one of the world’s largest lithium battery operations. In a competitive landscape, highly dominated by technology and IP, this seemed like an impossible task.

We set on a mission to help the company grow and achieve its ambitions with a thorough and well planned M&A growth strategy.

Key client challenges

  • Thorough understanding of the market dynamics but lacking “helicopter view” on the market direction and opportunities
  • Lack of understanding of the strategic direction best to pursue taking into account limited budget and specific resources / capabilities
  • The need to quickly secure $20M in financing to finance the first acquisition, followed by $100M raise for the growth & scaling

Where we helped

  • Initial research and analysis on the opportunities in the Li-Ion market taken into account Client’s strengths, weaknesses and capabilities
  • Advisory in the acquisition of two battery companies to complement Client’s product portfolio and capabilities
  • Support in securing the financing for the acquisitions from the outside investors; including full build on the Information Memorandum, pitch deck, financial modelling and valuation
