Pairing with a financial partner, such as a private equity group, allows the chance for a two-payday approach. For example, a private equity group may buy a percentage of your company for cash (often between 51 - 80%), and plan an IPO or a strategic sale or merger within 3 to 5 years. This may allow the percentage that you keep to be worth more than the percentage you sold.
This approach allows a seller to gain liquidity and at the same time to participate in the company's future growth.
In order to create a highly diversified selection process, National Business Search contacts virtually all of the top private equity groups, capital companies, and other investment entities. This process is designed to allow our clients to select the most compatible financial partner.
Financial buyers often look for industry segments where there is good potential growth or the opportunity for a roll up.
Many financial buyers are really strategic buyers. These are capital companies and private equity groups that have one or more portfolio companies in the same or similar industry as that of your company. These buyers are among the best because they combine a strategic buyer's desire to make an acquisition with a financial buyer's sophistication and ability to put a deal together.
