Business Development / M & A

Over the last 20 years, the Principals at New Kent Consulting have participated in hundreds of deals — and completed more than 60 acquisitions and divestitures, totaling more than $1.5 Billion while at ChoicePoint (before ultimately selling the company to Reed-Elsevier for $4.3 Billion).  We know the data space and players, we know the information services space and players, and we know how to help your team identify the right targets — and then manage/perform due diligence and aggressively compete for the deal you want.

Whether you’re a small business looking to complete early rounds of debt or equity, or a more mature business looking to muscle up or scale down/sell out we’ve “been there – done that” and can help you complete the transaction.
