Many times in business, one owner wants to buyout another owner, or one business partner wants to move in a different direction from the other business partner.
An owner may be investigating exit strategies, or is ready to sell their business interests to employees, family, or an outside company.
Buyout Services and Artisan Capital
Artisan Capital works with management teams and owners to evaluate a company’s business and potential for a leveraged buyout. If it is believed that the future of the business provides a strong potential for success, Artisan Capital consults with executives and management to draft a letter of intent (proposal) to purchase the Company from the owner.
Often one of the biggest road blocks to executing a successful buyout is the owner’s belief whether management is a qualified buyer, or if the financing is achievable. To gain the confidence of management and the owner, Artisan Capital works with the company to pre-qualify the buyout with multiple potential lenders/investors prior to submitting a final proposal to the owners so that both owner and buyer can feel confident a deal can get done. Artisan Capital can also help management and owner identify an independent valuation firm to justify the purchase price both for the potential buyer and seller.
