Investor Support Services
Norbridge provides expert consulting assistance to investors, to help value new opportunities or enhance the performance of existing portfolio companies. We work for private equity firms, strategic investors, pension funds and others who seek insightful analysis. Our services are tailored to your needs, whether for an acquisition target search or for time-critical due diligence. Investors benefit from Norbridge assistance through:
  • The focused attention of a Senior Partner leading each project
  • Robust consulting and business modeling capabilities — delivered fast and cost-effectively
  • Deep industry and function knowledge
  • Clear, compelling presentation of findings
  • Results-oriented approach
Opportunity Scan
Norbridge conducts searches for potential acquisition candidates, on behalf of both strategic and financial investors. Such searches are defined by agreed criteria — for example, company size, ownership, industry sub-sector, activities complementary to ongoing services, track record, growth strategy and geography. We generate potential candidates via multiple approaches, including tailored analysis of external databases, Norbridge partners' own extensive professional networks and conversations with selected executives. Recent assignments have involved areas as diverse as financial transaction processing, project management consulting and international transportation software.

Due Diligence
Norbridge partners have successfully led numerous due diligence engagements on behalf of a wide range of investors. Our clients include many of the leading private equity firms, as well as pension funds, private offices, real estate developers and strategic investors. The hallmarks of our success include: A well-proven and replicable process; rapid response and execution; clear focus on market and strategic factors; customer and competitor interviews; and powerful valuation models. Our due diligence projects have addressed opportunities in multiple industries, including transportation (all modes); third-party logistics; warehousing; marine terminals; equipment leasing; energy; software; pharmaceuticals; and medtech devices and diagnostics.

Value Creation
Norbridge assistance is often sought by investor groups on behalf of a portfolio company's management, in order to drive greater value creation. These assignments encompass all our normal management consulting activities — strategy, market focus, sales effectiveness, operational efficiency, process improvement, organizational development and performance measurement. Typically, these engagements seek to realize short- to medium-term improvements in bottom-line performance; for example, by refocusing on certain markets while exiting others; segmenting customers and realigning the sales force; conducting procurement initiatives; or streamlining major operational processes. Our work creates substantial value, in terms of net profits and EBITDA multiples.

Divestment
Norbridge also assists in the design and implementation of a sound exit strategy. We help develop a successful positioning strategy for the business, identify strategic buyers, prepare independent market size and share projections and draft offering memoranda. This assistance can be crucial in maximizing the return from sale of a portfolio company.
