Joint Venture

A Joint Venture (JV) is a collaborative business partnership between two or more companies, investors, or parties who join forces to achieve a shared business objective. This often involves pooling resources, expertise, and technology or know-how to pursue a specific project or activity outlined in a joint business plan.
In a Joint Venture & Partnership management consulting firm, each participant assumes responsibility for the associated profits, losses, risks, and costs of the venture, while the Joint Venture itself operates as a distinct entity separate from the individual interests of its participants or investors.

Structure Of Joint Venture

While commonly referred to as partnerships, Joint Ventures can take on various legal structures, such as limited liability companies, partnerships, corporations, and private limited companies.

Joint Venture management consulting firms may be established to accomplish specific projects or transactions, or to pursue ongoing objectives. These partnerships can bring together entities of different sizes to work on small or large-scale projects and deals.

The Joint Venture agreement is the most critical document that governs the Joint Venture Strategic Alliance, irrespective of its legal structure. This agreement outlines the shareholders’ rights and obligations, objectives, business plan, initial investments, corporate governance, dispute resolution methods, profit and loss sharing mechanisms, and other relevant aspects of the Joint Venture.

Project Assessment and Strategy briefing

To identify an ideal Joint Venture partner, SalahKaro will conduct a strategy briefing session with the client's management team to understand the necessary criteria, such as product/service offerings and capabilities, quality of human capital, and business size. This knowledge will then be utilized to create a comprehensive and targeted search profile for potential partners, resulting in a more detailed and focused approach to finding the right fit.


Following the strategy briefing session with the client's management team, Salahkaro will conduct a thorough analysis of the economic, organizational, and market-specific factors to identify a list of potential Joint Venture partners that meet the client's criteria. This list, also known as the "Target List," will include a long list of potential companies. The Target List will then be reviewed with the client, with the goal of screening and identifying the best and most suitable possible partners. As a result of these discussions, a shortlist of target companies will be generated.

Solicitation and Pursuit

SalahKaro will employ a targeted approach to engage with the top management of each shortlisted company to gauge their interest in exploring a potential value-chain partnership. The client's identity will remain confidential, and SalahKaro will only disclose it to a shortlisted target after they have shown a willingness to discuss and signed confidentiality agreements. During this stage, both parties will exchange mutual presentations and any relevant information, while maintaining a balance between the interests and intentions of the client

Target List

SalahKaro will create an Ideal target profile for each shortlisted company, assigning weights or grades to each target based on the client's criteria. The client's management team will use this profile to select the final target(s). SalahKaro will also facilitate visits by the client's operational team to the selected targets, arrange for visits by the target companies to the client, and coordinate management presentations from the shortlisted companies. The ultimate goal of these visits and presentations is to enable the client to choose the ideal target, subject to further operational, financial, and legal due diligence.

Due diligence and valuation

SalahKaro can provide support in creating the joint business plan and play a facilitating and participating role in the financial, operational, and legal due diligence processes once the target and the client have exchanged a non-binding Letter of Interest.


SalahKaro will take charge of preparing, facilitating, and participating in negotiations between the client and the target company, all the way from reaching an agreement in principle (e.g., Letter of Intent / Term-Sheet) to the final signature of the Joint Venture agreement and the completion of the transaction.
