SoOum's business philosophy is patterned after the Persistence Hunting Strategy depicted in the video clip provided on this page and consists of four major components: (1) Scouting, (2) Gathering, (3) Isolating, and (4) Taking-down. Each component of PHS has its own set of steps, which are outlined below:?
Intelligence Team scans and looks out for potential prey or potential deals. This includes attending events such as trade shows and trade expos, trade summits, invitations to United States government tabletop meetings and trade missions.Data gathered by these methods is entered into a database and analysis tool designed by SoOum called Medee. Medee has the capability of running algorithms based on certain criteria of probability, which allows SoOum to narrow down the number of opportunities from many thousands to a hundred.
Coordinated efforts between the Company’s Management, Intelligence Team, and Development Team are performed. The process of selecting potential new deals is conducted through careful and robust analysis, including the use of transactional risk metrics, vetting of potential parties involved, and market intelligence. During this period, the Company or Hunting Party identifies sixteen transactions that contain players most ready, willing and able to finish the deal with SoOum.
A deal-screening meeting is conducted every two weeks to consider the Top-16 potential transactions for the Top-5. The deal-screening meeting further includes each of the Company’s teams (Intelligence, Development, and Solutions). ?Only those transactions averaging a non-performance risk rating of two and a half or lower with an overall EBITDA margin of ten percent or more are considered for further Management review.
The Solutions Team creates a Closing Package, approved by management including the final steps of sourcing, delivery, and payment. This package includes any necessary inspections and customer relations meetings. The deal is complete at payment in full from importers and closing of accounts payable on the transaction.
