Reasons to Seek a PE Partner

For owners, the thought of making a business transition or adding a partner can be very stressful. However, working with a PE partner is often:

  • An ideal way to overcome succession challenges and provide ownership to management, family members or others
  • The most viable method of expanding a business or acquiring a competitor
  • A sound way for owners to realize liquidity while maintaining ownership — a win-win for those who believe in their company's future, but don’t want to face all of the risks alone
  • The most direct path for a company to make fundamental business improvements that often are more difficult to achieve under current ownership constraints
  • The most viable way to ensure your company isn’t left behind during an economic phase where many industries are experiencing consolidation
