Dear Business Owners and Trusted Advisors,
Statistically, 9 out of 10 business owners have not prepared their company for its imminent ownership transition. That’s a tragedy!
Kingsbridge Capital Partners was founded to serve lower middle-market business owners of privately held companies who have a deep desire to get top dollar when they sell to third party buyers or transition to inside management or family members. As many of you know, a business may be the most valuable, yet most illiquid asset an entrepreneur owns. It is also typically the last big transaction in a business owner’s life! Our team knows that's a BIG DEAL and it’s VERY IMPORTANT!
If you are a business owner visiting us today, we know that your business is your baby! Our team of experienced mergers and acquisitions advisors takes a very caring and consultative approach to transitioning ownership of a business. Here's what one advisor recently wrote to one of our advisors: "Based on my experience working with a pretty large stable of investment bankers, you guys have a refreshing approach which, in my opinion, provides some real differentiation for your business."
Here’s our philosophy…we will not take a company to market unless we are confident that the business owner will meet all of his or her goals and the deal will not get tripped up in due diligence. It’s a model that we built and improved upon over the years. It works! Every business we have taken to market, which was stable or growing in the past 10 years, has sold.
We have spent years uncovering the finest experts from around the country. Each advisor has many years of experience, is well educated and is considered an expert in his or her discipline. Each advisor lives by the same value system as we do. We only align ourselves with folks who are at the top of their game, because that’s what business owners need and that’s what we demand.
Our team includes experts from the following disciplines: mergers, acquisitions, tax planners, exit planners, business valuation appraisers, machinery and equipment appraisers, transaction attorneys, CPA’s, accountants, wealth advisors, strategic planners, business coaches and specialty consultants. Additionally, we have aligned ourselves with industry experts who can provide our team and our clients with advice throughout the process.
If you are a business owner who is visiting us today, we look forward to helping you meet all of your goals. If you are an advisor to business owners, you can rest assured that we will help you take very good care of your clients by providing guidance where possible. That’s our promise to you!
We look forward to speaking with you and learning how our team can help you. If we determine we can’t help you, we will let you know and provide guidance where possible. Please feel free to pick up the phone and give us a call at 816-522-0929.
Warmest Regards, Laura Maver Ward, M&AMI, CBI, CMAP, CBC, FMAS - Founder & Managing Partner of Kingsbridge Capital Partners
