Capital investment and working capital lending help extend a business’ foundation for commercial growth. In this practice, we advise clients on commercial and private equity financing for corporate ventures as well as start-ups. We advise clients on programs and transactions for developing investment and management strategies for rapid growth, capture of market share in new markets and increased valuation multiples by leveraging equity capital into high value activities, leaving the rest to be outsourced.
We assist enterprises in obtaining and negotiating private equity investment and in structuring their business for rapid growth through capital raising, portfolio company acquisitions and dispositions, divestitures, restructuring strategies for incentive compensation, stock option plans, outsourced administrative arrangements and protection of know-how and IP rights as they are developed. We work closely with all participants in the financing process, including private investors, placement agents, venture capital, patent counsel, and other specialists, as needed.
We advise clients on building strategic value for each portfolio company in its “back office platform” by providing guidance on developing a program design for back office administration. This enables private equity capital to be leveraged in higher value investments such as research and development and sales. This approach also builds value for each roll-up, in a private equity portfolio company, by facilitating rapid scalability, standardization and territorial extension of the core roll-up enterprise by post-merger integration.
