Corporate Advisory

Recapitalizations are designed to provide liquidity and remove any personal financial risk to business owners, while still keeping in place significant equity incentives for existing managers. In many cases, a new capital partner may also provide capital for new growth opportunities.

There are various reasons to perform a recapitalization:
  • Owner liquidity
  • Family succession
  • Management buyouts
  • Management buy-ins
  • Industry consolidation
