Mergers & Acquisitions

Enclues structures, negotiates, and executes sell-side and buy-side M&A transactions. We employ a structured, transparent and pragmatic approach to designing and executing on transactions for our clients. We run Responsible Exit mandates, which reflect mission preservation without compromising proceeds. Enclude has executed multinational transactions throughout sub-Saharan Africa and South and South-East Asia.

Our philosophy around responsible exits rests on two pillars. Firstly, it is important to determine what is meant by a ‘responsible exit’. In our view, it should mean the investor who is best placed to provide the business with what it needs to grow its impact. Secondly, it is of paramount importance to address this upfront, at the beginning of the engagement. This is the only way to take mission considerations into account without harming the healthy competitive tension that is needed throughout the bidding process.
