Is Your Business Under-Performing and You Need An Exit Strategy?

Do you own a company that’s a real fixer upper? One with an upside down balance sheet? We know of a buyout firm seeking to acquire under-performing companies in the lower middle market.

A challenged company presents opportunity. We ask, “How could this work?” and “Is there a way to unlock real value?”

If you are struggling or in deep distress (e.g. Bankruptcy or ABC), this firm relieves under-performers with up to $150 million in sales. Most companies in which they have interest should have sales in the range of $5 to $50 million.

Areas of Interest
Working with the fixer-uppers and upside-downers requires an open mind and a creative approach. The firm is opportunistic and work diligently at finding the treasures that others may have overlooked. The general targets are companies in the following industries:

  • Manufacturing
  • Distribution
  • Logistics
  • Business Services

The firm will also consider retail and franchise operations and particular areas of interest include:

  • Branded food products
  • Food processing
  • Automotive
  • Plastics
  • Metals
  • Aviation
