Mergers and Acquisitions
United Software Corporation provides M&A advice, including sell-side advice, raid, and activism defenses, cross-border M&A, special committee assignments and complicated merger transactions. United Software Corporation provides advice on a full range of transactions, including mergers, sales, acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, joint ventures, raid defenses, spin-offs, divestitures, and other restructurings for mid-sized to large technology companies around the world.
United Software Corporation Corporate Derivatives team works with technology corporations to develop customized risk management strategies. Our Corporate Finance team helps businesses structure complex transactions while our Leveraged Finance Capital Markets team originates, structures and executes bank loans and high-yield bond financings for corporate clients and financial sponsors.
Our Hedge Fund’s overall investment philosophy is to protect and grow investors’ assets through both commingled and custom-tailored investment strategies designed to deliver compelling risk-adjusted returns and mitigate risk. Approximately half of the assets we manage are invested in customized vehicles created to meet client-specific objectives.
We work closely with high-net-worth individuals, families, endowments and highly profitable technology corporations to develop wealth and investment management strategies. We then identify investment opportunities to help them reach their objectives. We complement these services with robust execution capabilities and attentive client service.
United Software Corporation helps investors find new opportunities in global emerging economies in technology and synthetics. Our team’s deep local market expertise, specially mainland China, allows them to assess market risk and access local exchanges to help clients deal with the complexities of international transactions in cross-border mergers and acquisitions.
Our Technology Investment Research division provides original, fundamental insights and analysis for clients in the equity, fixed income, and commodities markets covering areas such as economics, portfolio strategy, derivatives and equity around the world. Our research reports help investors better understand the issues and trends in a volatile technology marketplace.
Our tailored Credit solutions for technology companies are often not available elsewhere in the credit markets and draw upon a range of non-investment grade disciplines including leveraged loans, high-yield bonds, distressed debt, mezzanine lending, and rescue financing.
Middle Market Financing
Our MMF group is a global, multi-asset class business, specializing in principal investing and lending in all levels of capital structures on a risk-adjusted return basis. MMF is the primary center for United Software Corporation’s middle-market financing and investing activity. The group lends and invests United Software Corporation’s capital directly to mid-sized to large IT outsourcing and implementation firms.
Our Liability Management team advises on and executes public and private debt transactions including tenders, exchange offers, and consents. These transactions are often executed as part of broader corporate restructurings, asset sales and refinancings.
Our focus on underwriting the intrinsic value of a tech company enables us to creatively invest in a broad spectrum of securities across the capital structure. We have significant flexibility in the kinds of investments we make in technology or IT services companies in both US and China.
