Target Identification
& Initial Testing

Prior to closing a new investment, we identify and are able to “test” acquisition strategies during the due diligence phase. This is done to determine the fragmentation and overall size of the market as well as the actionability of targets. This ensures your team’s resources are pointed in the right direction and proprietary insights can be applied during due diligence.

Research Philosophy

A robust sourcing strategy requires research on thousands of companies to find the right targets. Through our proprietary, public and private databases, industry associations, trade shows, and other sources we identify targets that fit your specific criteria. To expedite this process, Genz utilizes:

  • Specialized Internal Research Team
  • Leading Subscription-Based Information Services
  • Research Management Tools & Databases
  • AI/Machine Learning Technology

“Going beyond the conventional, we go outside the box to identify quality acquisition candidates.”
