Moving forward in , there’s a considerable amount of apprehension in general from U.S. citizens. It’s hard to remember a time when the country has been so divided on the correct approach to getting the economy firmly on track while getting the deficit under control. Sadly, even friendships have been lost in some cases where the feelings run particularly strong. There’s little question that all of us worry for various reasons for our children and grandchildren. Still, there are bright sides for those of us fortunate enough to be in the right place at the moment while this is all being sorted out. While the national economic challenges continue to worry all of us, there’s a lot to like in the technology and internet sectors. Silicon Valley and San Francisco are leading the way. Healthcare hiring is robust all over California and biotech companies are doing particularly well in the San Diego area. Check out our new La Jolla office!
What does this mean for privately held companies considering their exit options? Considerable acquisition interest continues to be focused on up and coming companies with scalable business models. Many small, private companies are getting serious looks from buyers eager to build stronger, more competitive brands. Getting your company in front of those buyers (CEO's, CFO's, Corporate Development, Privately Funded) is the key to making it happen. We know how to do it. Pent up demand from the past 2+ years and improving debt markets (exception Europe) are positively impacting the markets, but it’s the idle cash reserves of large entities of various forms that is pushing the pace. Companies being acquired in cash deals from $10M to $40M are happening with increasing frequency. If you’re a private company Founder or CEO who might benefit from such a scenario, pick up the phone and give us a call. As a small firm, we are nimble with the ability to move transactions forward in a timely manner. We have extensive contacts with key M&A executives in major companies who are crucial in getting things done.
We focus on technology, internet, social commerce, consumer, medical device and family owned companies with annual revenues up to $100 million and represent acquiring companies of all sizes. We also look at “special situation” companies who might have small revenues but a compelling business model that may be attractive to larger firms who have the resources and capability of capitalizing on such a scenario.
