We're experienced in the various phases of
transactional management, buying, selling, managing,
private equity capitalization, investment banking, general business consulting, financing
(institutional as well as private),
and transaction closings. Our firm's principals combined experience in
the transaction management of acquisitions and divestitures is well-rounded, all-inclusive, and diverse

Industries & Marketplaces to Which We Cater
There are many industries that we have chosen not to
provide services but our focus is not necessarily
only on specific industries. Rather, the criteria
that we use to assess whether or not we will
represent a company is more heavily weighed towards
characteristics of companies that we feel are have
higher probabilities of
longer-termed life. Important questions to ask are:
Is the company's industry trending up, is it
static, or is it in decline?
When the company's financials are recasted and
graphed, will the line reflect revenues,
profitability, and margin of profitability to be on an incline,
decline, or static?
Could the product/service provided by the
opportunity be construed by anyone as
being even remotely less than moral or ethical?
Is the offering or company properly priced?
With what method(s) of valuation was the
Does adequate market demand exist for the type
of opportunity within private equity, investment
banking, merger and
acquisition, and "smart money" investment community?
Will the deal pass the litmus test of
market-rate expected ROI for debt and/or equity
parties who might be interested?
To what degree does the financing and investment
of the offering price work out numerically for a
What is the banking
community's willingness to do on the deal?
How and Where
We provide services for our seller clients as well as
for buyer clients who are pursuing an acquisition.
We'll work with both parties to intermediate
a sale but, however, we will not represent both a seller client and a buyer
client in the same transaction (we don't participate in "dual agency").
We strongly feel that the overall environment for M&A transactions,
private equity placements, and small to mid-sized
investment banking transactions has
changed over the years and that "old school" practices of
transaction management still commonly utilized by
many investment banking, merger and acquisition
professionals, and business brokerage professionals
lacks the level of service that the transaction
really needs to get to the closing table. Our methodologies are quite aggressive
and innovative and we consequently consider ourselves
to be "new school" intermediaries in our approach to
transactions in which we are engaged.
For our seller clients, we're very familiar with
the most successful and innovative methodologies of
"deal flow" channels to maximize exposure to
potential candidates who are seeking to possibly acquire.
We represent divesting and acquiring clients both on a local, smaller-scaled
basis (to a specific local or regional market) as well as on a larger, or more national basis.
Ethics and Principles
deliberately forthright, we're experienced, we're aggressive,
we're evangelical Christians.
We are very reasonable and strongly believe
in being very direct, and to-the-point.
Our time is valuable and so is your's, right? We have acquired, owned, started, sold, brokered, and
structured financial transactions.
Consequently, we can very closely relate your interests,
whether they are to invest in or grow financial
opportunities, to acquire, sell, or evaluate your company
and financial options you may have.
We Make this Very Strong Promise to You
We promise to do our best for you with that which you give
us work with. We understand the value of your
years of time investment into your company and the value of
your cash investment. We promise to be extremely considerate of
your interests and we will not play games or be anything short of
very honest and forthright with you. We very strongly believe in the
well-known Bible verse (Matthew 7:12) which says Do
unto others as you would have them do unto you.
You will get nothing short of that from us.
Ask a Very Simple Request of You
We ask that you do the same for us that we promise to do for
you. Please honor that.
