Mergers & Acquisitions

Park Lane contributed valuable information and assistance in our acquisition of MacGregor Golf in 2009. We are proud to work with them, and look forward to future opportunities together.”

— Martin Hanaka, CEO, Golfsmith

With exceptional transaction expertise, relationships and trade knowledge, Park Lane is an industry leader in advisory services for mergers and acquisitions in sports. M&A advisory is offered to both targets (“the sell side”) and acquirers (“the buy side”).  Sell-side advisory includes canvassing our network of contacts in the sports industry to pinpoint the right buyer, formulating an exit strategy for owners and investors, and ensuring a deal’s satisfactory close. On the buy side, our team identifies qualifying targets, performs valuations and due diligence, negotiates price and terms, and sets the deal structure.

Our proprietary M&A process includes the following types of transactions, among others:

From producing financials for an owner who wishes to sell a team to negotiating a merger between two similarly-sized healthy living companies, from helping a group of investors convince a growing sports league that they are fit to own an expansion team to advising an extreme sports company on buying out an up-and-coming competitor, Park Lane is a trusted player in sports finance. In this exclusive field, it may take more than wealth to own a team and more than initiative to sell a business. We have the essential, in-depth relationships to open the doors to M&A possibilities.
