ABOUT US

WHAT WE DO

After an introduction a company, we seek to build trust and gain an understanding of the business operations. We become familiar with the organization by meeting with the business owner and other key people, reviewing financial reports and examining all policies and procedures. If both parties mutually agree to move forward, then we begin to collaborate with company leadership. Together we establish goals for growth and improvement.

Next, we get to work within the company. In order to achieve the highest possible valuation, we implement strategies that will add value to the business. The business owner can choose whether to participate in this process or to transition into retirement.

Here are a number of strategies we employ to achieve value creation:
  • Establish and improve fundamental key performance measures

  • Develop an annual operating plan

  • Streamline operations to be scalable and resilient

  • Improve employee training

  • Rigorously analyze customer and product profitability

  • Deploy technology to increase efficiency

  • Design and implement targeted and efficient marketing and customer acquisition

  • Implement incentive structures that drive equity value creation

 

Our goal is to position each company to achieve its highest possible valuation upon the owner’s exit.

WHO WE SERVE
