As a member of the Deal Preparation (DP) team, Sean is responsible for bringing our clients to market upon their onboarding. The DP process includes the collection of numerous historical and current financial documents and performing an extensive financial analysis to better understand specific sources of revenue, expenses, overall company performance, and historical trends. It also includes a discovery process, where he learns about the company’s operations, structure, and culture.

Once clients are on market, he is responsible for periodically updating the Information Memorandum and Teaser for contemporary financials and any other changes the company may have incurred.
