Mergers And Acquisitions
While our primary role is to represent sellers and understand their needs, we also understand buyers because we regularly interact with them in the marketplace. Our managing directors structure and negotiate deals and provide thoughtful representation through every stage of a mergers and acquisition transaction. Our proven, targeted process leads to successful deals by effectively identifying the best transaction partner for you.
Sale To A Strategic Buyer
An outright sale to a strategic buyer is a good solution for owners looking for a fast exit from the daily risks and obligations of their business. An outright sale provides immediate liquidity and diversification of wealth for business owners with limited or no participation in the continued growth of the business.
Sale To A Private Equity Group
A recapitalization structure through the private equity market offers many private business owners a better outcome than an outright sale. It’s an excellent tool for entrepreneurs who have built wealth inside their companies as it creates current liquidity and allows them to participate in future growth through continued equity ownership after the transition including a second liquidity event usually occurring three to five years after the sale.
Types of recapitalization transactions include: debt recapitalization, majority recapitalization, management buyout, minority equity-led recapitalization and balance sheet restructuring.
