Sell-side advisory mandates:

We associate with investment banks for identification of the investors our small and medium enterprises for equity investment. The network of investors of the investment banks with deep insight into their investment preferences can help in quicker closure of the assignments. In typical arrangement, the investment bank advises the investor and Apohan advises the seller. Alternately, Apohan and the investment banker can get into joint investment consulting mandate with the business seller for sell-side advisory.

Buy side advisory mandates:

We can associate with the investment banks through a joint mandate with the investor for identification and completion of the the buy side advisory mandate.

Apohan invites your investment bank to sign an MOU for mutual cooperation in quick closure of merger and acquisition deals.


Apohan has maximum number of sell-side mandates, the selling businesses would require a wide variety of investors as per their preference. Also, an investor may have specific preference for investment ticket size, location, sector, etc. Similarly, an investment bank may be specialised in particular function or sector. Exclusive engagement would handicap Apohan’s capability to explore the most attractive investors for the business. Hence, Apohan does not get associated with anyone investment banker as their exclusive agents.

Also, the engagement of our client with an investment banker either as the advisor of the investor or as the joint advisor of the seller with Apohan would not be exclusive right in the beginning. It will be non exclusive till the buyer and seller agree in-principle and in writing for a serious deal interest.
