Ozg is a investment banking consulting group with particular focused on the initiation, facilitation and completion of transactions.
We along with associate/partner companies work on making and actively managing direct investments in best performing companies on behalf of selected co-investors. And seek to acquire equity stakes in companies with growth prospects, usually in the form of pre-IPO funding, with a view to assisting them with their continued development managerially and strategically and ultimately securing a realization of our investment through floatation or sale.
Ozg creates profitable investments by adding value through financial engineering. This may be providing capital for a timely acquisition or a refinancing, but also includes planning where and when is the best place to raise finance and from whom; when and how to exit; and how to package a company and its operations so that it is ready for market, whether an IPO or a trade sale.
Whilst we will look at transactions in most sectors, we are particularly interested in businesses which are involved in power generation and infrastructure, together with consumer-facing businesses.
Ideally a target company will be currently profitable and cash-generative, but consistent with the above we also look at companies which are not, either because they need reorganizing or because they are at an early stage of their development. We recognize that each situation is different, and we look at each case on its merits.
Our investment strategy always requires provisions for the protection of investors’ interests, including board representation and appropriate financial controls.
The main focus of Ozg is to: ’make the deal work’.
For either the buy or sell side, we have a proven seven step process as follows:
Engage the management team and set goals
Scan the market sector and identify suitable targets
Approach the targets
Carry out assessment and due diligence
Prepare decision documents and agreements
Identify and introduce the appropriate financial partners
Close the deal
Generally, we work with experienced CEO’s and Managing Directors with sector specific knowledge on different deals.
Mergers & Acquisitions
A Merger or Acquisition (M&A) can add considerable value to a business, but making sure that each stage of the transaction process—from valuation to negotiation and completion—is successful demands considerable experience and knowledge.

Financial Due Diligence
All businesses involved in an acquisition, as buyers or sellers, need to ensure that the financial information they hold is as accurate as possible, not only to prevent paying too much (or in a seller’s case receiving too little) but also to ensure that their governance and risk management objectives are met.
Ozg Banking Experts can help you in
- Establishing the understanding of the target business and therefore increasing the likelihood of the deal achieving its objectives.
- Providing purchaser with greater certainty over the nature of the business and the characteristics of its cash flow. This helps pricing decisions and the level of gearing the structure will support.
- By helping you to reduce disruption to the business as the sale process is more controlled.
- By providing rapid execution of the divestment from the point of announcement for vendors. This reduces the business disruption and accelerates transfer to new owners
