Ravensbeck can provide a complete deal management service, from target identification and evaluation through negotiation, transaction management and post-transaction services. In addition to our core team, we can deploy and manage providers of specialist deal support functions.

Effective transaction and deal management is particularly important in the Media sector,
where there are many examples of well-thought through strategies which have failed
expensively for a variety of practical reasons, including poor negotiation, ineffective follow-
through and inability to maintain a rigorous bottom-line focus within a creative environment.
Ravensbeck’s team members have successfully led and concluded many media deals of
all types and sizes in all important geographic markets. Examples include major mergers
and acquisitions, sector roll-ups, disposals, joint ventures, long-term licensing and
distribution deals and funding and investment.

We believe that transactions and deals need to be coordinated and managed on an
integrated basis from start to finish, to give the best chance of “no surprises”
successful and profitable outcomes. We are keen to demonstrate our commitment to this
philosophy by taking part of our remuneration in the form of success-fees or carried interest.
