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. From simply “could do better” to deep distress (i.e., in bankruptcy or ABC), they target the entire spectrum of ne’er-do-wells. They look for under-performers with up to $150 million in sales but the real “sweet spot” is companies with 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:
• Business Services
The firm will also consider compelling storied deals in retail and franchise operations. In addition to general areas of interest, the special focuses include:
branded food products
A challenged company presents opportunity. We ask, “How could this work? Is there a way to unlock real value?” Our team is comfortable in situations that drive others away. Such situations include family succession issues, partnership fights, and investor disputes. They also seek to invest in recapitalizations, restructurings, corporate orphan entities, divestitures, consolidation plays, and time-sensitive opportunities.
