This internship basically helps Sierra Atlantic to achieve its goal for the identification of suitable candidates in UK which can be acquired by the company to grow inorganically and expand its business further in UK.

In order to execute the project logically, it has been divided into four logical stages focusing on tasks – market scanning for the potential candidate based on Sierra Atlantic’s acquisition criteria, ranking the companies based on scoring, choosing the top 3 companies for financial evaluation, performing non-financial evaluation including synergy and barriers.

The acquisition criteria or the filter parameters for scanning the UK is provided by Sierra Atlantic based on their acquisition strategy and firm and corporate level requirements. Even the ranking system adopted is also suggested by Sierra Atlantic. As part of the financial evaluation discounted cash flow and comparable methods are adopted, as per Sierra Atlantic request, to estimate the firm value of the target companies. For both methods, scenario analyses of different cases are applied in order to estimate the true value of target firms. Lastly, a brief analysis of synergy and potential barriers acquisitions are identified.

Finally, based on total analysis of the selected candidate firms recommendations are made to the client for the appropriate candidate which can be acquired by Sierra Atlantic based on their need and requirements.
