PAG provides private and public company Boards of Directors, investors, trustees, and other organizational leaders or fiduciaries an array of advisory services to assist in fulfilling their fiduciary duties. Organizations typically appoint a Special Committee of its Board of Directors to provide an independent review of a proposed transaction which contains an inherent conflict of interest. In some cases, these committees are tasked with negotiating the entire arrangement or may seek modifications to a proposed transaction. In either case, in order to properly fulfill their fiduciary duties, Special Committees typically hire experienced financial and legal advisors.
Our senior professionals have decades of experience in advising Boards of Directors and their Special Committees. Our senior professionals have represented Special Committees in a number of significant transactions. Clients count on PAG to provide these services with the highest standards of integrity, independence, objectivity, and financial expertise.
We approach Special Committee assignments as a truly independent advocate of the Special Committee members and the underlying stakeholders they represent. Depending on the circumstances, our role can vary from executing nearly complete buy-side or sell-side mergers and acquisitions advisory engagements to assignments closer to that of a Fairness Opinion. Fairness Opinions normally accompany a Special Committee assignment to the extent the Special
Committee recommends a transaction to the full Board of Directors for consideration.
In any case, we maintain the flexibility of approach and broad-based skills and experience to deliver the appropriate advisory services necessary to allow the Special Committee to properly fulfill its fiduciary duties.
