Overview

Northington Partners is a market leading provider of corporate finance services to a wide range of companies. Our reputation is built on delivering advice that is always well considered, backed by quality research and an in-depth understanding of the markets in which our clients operate. In addition to providing access to exceptional analysis, we pride ourselves on the top quality of our service and reporting output. We have established an impressive track record as one of New Zealand’s leading valuation experts, which has also provided the basis for the provision of many independent reports that are needed to support transactions subject to the Takeovers Code and the NZX Listing Rules. While those reports are typically centred around a robust valuation process, we are also very focused on providing an analysis of the merits of the transaction which is accessible by all target shareholders. The Northington team has also managed numerous large scale corporate finance assignments which have leveraged off our specialised skills in quantitative analysis, derivative valuation and advanced financial modelling. These mandates include long-term strategic planning, capital raising support and litigation support.

The executive team at Northington Partners has extensive corporate finance experience with market-leading skills in strategy, valuation, specialised quantitive analysis and commercial negotiation.

CORPORATE FINANCE

Cost of Capital Advice

We provide cost of capital advice to clients across many different industries, including infrastructure, forestry, viticulture, construction, technology, property, agriculture, manufacturing and financial services. Our approach has been scrutinised by the Commerce Commission and the Land Valuation Tribunal, as well as in private arbitrations and High Court proceedings.

Investment and Project Appraisal

In simple terms, we help our clients determine whether or not an investment or new project will be financially viable. Our approach delivers information that helps decision makers fully appreciate the potential impact of future changes to operating conditions, and the factors that they should concentrate on in order to maximise value. We use a full range of tools to provide this information, from simple sensitivity analysis to more comprehensive Monte Carlo Simulation and decision tree approaches.

FINANCIAL MODELLING

We have built a variety of fit-for-purpose financial models which have been used for long-term planning, strategic option analysis, funding support and internal valuation. All of our models reflect best-practice standards and features, and are typically designed for handover to the client for internal use.

Strategic Analysis

We provide our clients with practical, rigorous analysis to support strategic planning, capital structure optimisation, investment appraisals and performance benchmarking.

Business and Share Valuation

We have acknowledged valuation expertise across all sectors, including construction, retail, technology, financial services, property, manufacturing and agribusiness. These valuations have been undertaken for a variety of purposes, including capital raising, divestment, joint ventures, corporate governance, regulatory requirements and the provision of expert opinions.

Northington Partners produces high quality independent reports for clients involved in both takeover and capital restructuring processes. Our reports have been used to satisfy the requirements of the Takeover Code, NZX Listing Rules and other regulatory frameworks.
