What is CIM?

A Confidential Information Memorandum (CIM), which is also known as an Offering Memorandum (OM), Confidential Business Review (CBR), or Information Memorandum (IM), is a marketing document prepared by M&A consultants or investment bankers hired by the selling company during the Merger and Acquisition process.

CIM is usually prepared for potential buyers or investors giving them a complete overview of the seller’s business. CIM aims to ensure that the selling company looks lucrative from investors'/buyers' perspectives, so that the seller can get the maximum valuation for their business.

About OGS Capital

Contents of a Confidential Information Memorandum

The contents of a CIM will vary depending on the company and its situation, but generally it comprises the following information:

What should not be included in a CIM?

A CIM is not an exhaustive list of every detail about the business; rather, it should be concise and informative. While preparing a CIM, some confidential information like tax information (including copies of tax returns), list of key customers, detailed breakdowns of income and expenditure, etc. are usually excluded. The main reason for doing so is that it protects the interests of the company and its potential investors by safeguarding those details from public scrutiny.

High quality Business Plan

Initially I had a telephone contact with Alex, which was promising immediately. From then I received fast reactions. After sending my own business plan, OGS Capital released within 10 days their draft, which was very professional and also satisfying to me. I had some corrections and suggestions, which resulted after a few days in the final draft. Also the e-mail traffic was giving hope and correct answers. Now, after paying the final invoice, I received within a couple of minutes the final Business Plan. I am sure the plan will open eyes from investors due to Alex's high quality Business Plan, its content and our very unique product we developed to contribute to save and to enriche the worldwide environment.

Highly Professionals, Perfect, Quick, Reasonable…. Dependable….

I used OGS Capital to prepare my business plan for E2 visa application. I don't have appropriate word to describe their wonderful service, if I write something it's way way less then they provide me, Particularly Alex, he is very very knowledgeable, respective, resourceful, loyal, always ready to reply, Hard working guy. I received wonderful work from Alex and he gave me way more then I was expecting. I gave him very very few details about me and my business then he wanted and upon those very fewer details he made such a wonderful, detailed, perfect business plan in given time frame even I provided my details too late. Hats off...........Standing ovation.................I highly recommends people to hire OGS capital who need business plan, they are highly professionals, dependable, 24/7 available and ready to help.....And last but not the least, very reasonable in the price. Thank you very very very much again Alex......OGC Capital is the best.

What is the difference between an Operating Memorandum and Confidential Information Memorandum?

What a Confidential Information Memorandum Is Not?

Now that we have covered what should form a part of a CIM and what shouldn’t, it’s now super important to understand what a CIM is not.

  1. CIM is not a legally binding agreement/contract: A CIM is not a legally binding document. It is just a marketing document for potential investors or buyers that outlines the investment opportunities in the company. CIM is designed to make a company appear as attractive as possible. However, it should be ensured that all the information stated in CIM should be true and not misleading.
  2. CIM is not a pitchbook: A pitchbook is a sales document prepared by an investment bank used to help businesses and their sales teams sell products, services and even attract new clients. Pitchbook should not be mistaken for a CIM. When a corporation wants to sell their business, an investment bank will use a pitchbook, whereas CIM is used by the investment bank you hired to convince a third party to purchase your business.
  3. CIM is not a valuation document: When an investment bank is trying to sell a business, they try to get the maximum possible value for it. Thus, while preparing a CIM, the investment bank doesn’t include any specific information on the exact valuation of the business. This way, they can let the potential investor place a bid by themselves and obtain a maximum business valuation.
