WHY DOMAIN EXPERTISE MATTERS

We define deep domain experience as at least ten years of related industry knowledge supported by specific functional expertise, ranging from R&D, manufacturing, service, and aftermarket.  In a due diligence process, we require our advisors to apply their analytical capability to think laterally to identify measurable risks and opportunities that can be substantiated in a financial model.

Nowadays, the Covid-19 restrictions do not easily allow for first-hand management presentations and site visits, and even the factory tours are conducted virtually. Deprivation of the hands-on, direct scrutiny leaves room for unintentional oversight and analytical gaps. In these situations, the deep domain expertise allows the due diligence team to tap into a vast tacit and explicit knowledge, experience, and relevant network to ensure that any ensuing information gaps are filled.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US

During a time of rapid change in the Power industry, Emerald has been a strong and trusted partner in our M&A and Strategic Planning efforts.

They have assembled an impressive cadre of industry experts, many of whom my staff and I have known and trusted earlier in our careers. When we need "surge capacity" of the highest caliber, we call Emerald.

PAUL BROWNING | PRESIDENT & CEOMITSUBISHI POWER SYSTEMS AMERICAS

We do not consider the Emerald team as advisors but more as an extension of our team, the workbench delivering the highest standards of service supporting our multi-sector growth strategy.

Emerald's deep bench of resources provides for unparalleled technical, commercial, and operational support in addition to analytical and financial modeling that sets them apart from other generalist advisory teams we have encountered in the market.

SCOTT VALENTINO | CEOPACIFIC CURRENT

Without the tireless efforts of the Emerald team and their creative and deep approach to assessing an opportunity, our team would not have uncovered the key trends and future possibilities, which ultimately provided a fundamental confirmation of our investment thesis.
