“The most important single central fact about a free market is that no exchange takes place unless both parties benefit.” – Milton Friedman

Many experienced business owners searching for a succession plan have wrestled with the notion of selling their companies, even as they continue to see significant growth ahead of them. Fortunately, there’s an alternative financial technique known as a private equity recapitalization (recap) where business owners can sell a portion of their business to private equity (PE) partners and still have the opportunity for growth.

PE firms can be savvy business partners that bring more than just capital to the table. They also provide industry, operational and organizational expertise, all of which can be used to increase the value of a business.

Here’s your invite to learn how transitioning owners can take advantage of PE Recapitalizations for the upcoming Jan 10 broadcast.


Many business owners think of only two options as it relates to their involvement with their company: they can run it or they can sell it. In reality, there is a middle ground – one that allows them to retain significant ownership in their business and continue setting its direction, all while diversifying their assets to provide greater financial security for their family. It is called a recapitalization transaction and, once educated on its benefits, many owners see it as a pathway for growing their business, preparing for their retirement, and reducing their risk along the way.In this webinar, you’ll learn how private equity firms partner with owners to achieve their ultimate exit strategy through a recapitalization transaction. We’ll use a case study to identify the types of situations where a recapitalization would be applicable and the benefits of this exit strategy.

What is the ‘Exit Solutions Alliance’ Webinar Series about?

Exits fail when advisors think from a siloed perspective. No individual advisor can be a specialist in every component that goes into creating rapid value growth and effective exit strategy. But to become a generalist in all things exit planning so you can look at things from all angles and “do it all yourself” is as faulty as thinking from one lens. Jack of all trades, master of none, right? Instead, subscribe to the 2018 Exit Solutions Alliance Webinar Series to learn the interworkings, techniques, and strategies from across the exit planning ecosystem. This year, the Exit Solutions series will feature Private Equity Growth Expert, Kyle Madden of KLH Capital, sought-after M&A Marketing Strategist, Christine Hollinden of Hollinden Marketers & Strategists, leading peer mentor to CEOs nationwide, Kevin Minton of Chief Executive Boards International, and Serial Entrepreneur & Award-Winning Author, John Warrillow of Value Builder System, among many others. Don’t miss your chance to pick the brain of the experts every month (typically hosted on the second Wednesday of the month). Register now for the upcoming broadcast.
