M&A Transaction Process

Vermillion worked closely with NMC-Wollard for several months to prepare the Company for its sale prior to going to market. Vermillion advised NMC on several strategic initiatives, including:

  • Advised the Company’s management team on highly critical meetings with buyers and ensured they were prepared for all areas that buyers would be focused on.
  • Advised NMC-Wollard on performing an analysis of the Company’s key government contracts, which would be scrutinized during the due diligence process.


Through a broad marketing process, Vermillion spoke with 145 prospective buyers and secured 25 first round bids. NMC-Wollard was sold to Kilroy Partners at a 14.3% premium to the next highest bidder.
