The Sale of Private Companies
Capstone’s unique process is designed to deliver the maximum price for private company owners wishing to sell. Plus, by identifying the potential bumps ahead, our proactive troubleshooting will help keep your deal on track — and work to ensure you’re justly rewarded for what you’ve built.
A distinct variation of the above process, a “recap” involves the sale of a majority interest in a company, with the seller retaining a sizeable ownership stake. This type of transaction has become immensely popular, allowing company owners to receive substantial liquidity but use “other people’s money” for growth, acquisitions, research and development. As the company then grows in value via increased sales and other acquisitions, the owner’s equity stake increases in value accordingly. When the company reaches the proper critical mass and is sold again, the owner’s “second bite of the apple” could be larger than his first.
Capstone is often called upon to help management groups leverage their experience and positions to gain majority control of their employer and/or the funds to accelerate growth, without incurring excessive debt burden. We provide the balance sheet analysis, strategic guidance and connections with funding sources to provide a sound and solid platform to help a business move forward under new ownership.
Looking to sell off a portfolio company or product line? Capstone can provide maximum shareholder value with total and absolute discretion. And we can manage the entire process for you, from finding buyers to negotiating final terms of the sale.
