Acuity Advisors appoint Partner to strengthen their corporate finance capability in San Francisco

Acuity appoints Ashish Agarwal as a partner to strengthen their capability in the West Coast, US

Acuity Advisors, the independent corporate advisory, today announced the appointment of Ashish Agarwal as their partner in corporate finance in San Francisco, United States. Ashish joins the Acuity team at an exciting time of international growth with an increasing number of European clients seeking to successfully sell their business to US buyers.

Ashish is located in the San Francisco Bay area and has strong links with Silicon Valley. He brings to the Acuity team over 16 years of global M&A advisory experience and a strong track record in technology transactions. These include cross-border deals for acquisitions of European companies by US based companies as well as European companies acquiring US based companies. Some of Ashish’s recent transactions have been focused on mobility, enterprise IT, data centres, cloud and storage, wireless and communications networks, home networking and content distribution.

Acuity’s international client base benefits from local expertise in both markets. UK Business owners selling a company to a US buyer do not need to choose between appointing an advisory company located close to their own office or a specialist in corporate finance in San Francisco (situated in the geography of the buyer’s market) – both needs are met.

Commenting on the appointment, Matthew Byatt, partner at Acuity said: “We are delighted to welcome Ashish to the team. Ashish’s experience and approach to corporate finance is identical to Acuity’s and therefore he is an excellent addition to our team. His appointment enables us to be more effective internationally and particularly in corporate finance in San Francisco, which is a focus area for many of our technology transactions”.

Ashish adds “I am very pleased to partner with the Acuity team. They have built a practice based on a high-touch, immersive approach and have personal experience in raising capital and running and selling companies. Together we will provide our clients with enhanced access to corporate finance in San Francisco, developing relationships with key investors and partners.”

A conversation is never wasted. We’re confident that we can give you all the help you need, but we’ll tell you if we think there’s a better option for you.
