Private Equity

An extensive and focused network of private equity buyers

We recognize great companies are spawned from the creative minds of entrepreneurs. We also recognize that not necessarily every Johnny-come-lately necessary has what it takes to implement an idea and truly have the gumption to persist and succeed. Ideas are important for success in nearly every stage of business development, and frankly, they may change. But where the rubber meets the road, it’s the people that make a venture successful. Deal Capital recognizes your passion and would love to help you succeed.

Obtaining your business funding from private investors is one of the best ways for starting and fostering great companies. Since entrepreneurship is at the heart of this city and what we do and who we are, we thoroughly enjoy working with seasoned entrepreneurs and business managers who have the idea, the passion and the know-how to wildly succeed. We believe it’s not necessarily about what you do, but how you do it that makes true success.

Seasoned entrepreneurs with a proven track record of implementation are at the heart of successful companies. We look for businessmen and women who are passionate, have integrity at the core and who can deliver results while changing the world in their own small way.

If you have a product or service you are passionate about and feel could benefit from early to late-stage funding, you have come to the right place. If you have what it takes and would like to gauge the fit of Deal Capital’s network of experienced and lively entrepreneurs, then reach out. We may be able to build something great together.

Private equity is an extremely broad term, overarching an entire industry. Each company within the private equity space employs a different strategy and approach in investing. We’re not unlike other companies that work in this space, we maintain a rigorous adherence to our core strategy and goals. One way in which we differentiate ourselves, however, is the network of partnerships we’ve codified over years of working with professionals who have a different take and approach to how they fund, manage and sell portfolio businesses.

Private Equity Partners

With access to a superb network of market influencers, consumer advocates, research institutions and business process experts, our reach expands far beyond our in-house expertise.

In addition to maintaining our current network of private equity partnerships, we also continuously seek to expand our scope and scale of partners in various sectors. Current partners consist of current and former entrepreneurs, visionaries, investors and inventors seeking to make in impact on the way consumers and businesses interact within their everyday lives.

Private Equity Financing

Whether your an existing, profitable enterprise seeking growth capital by selling an equity stake or a start-up with a superb idea and a better team with the qualities and expertise to penetrate a market, we can help take you there. We maintain a wealth of knowledge about business and consumer-driven companies.

Our team includes investors and expert operators with invaluable sector experience in the niches in which we and our partners choose to invest. As with most private financiers, our support and help go much deeper than simple capital infusion. Both internal access to tacit knowledge, we dive deep in portfolio companies, providing added lift in terms of business support. In addition, we often sit on the board of the companies we represent, offering priceless insight into potential help with recruitment, operations, finance, operations and brand-building. Our overall goal is scaled, profitable and smart growth, keeping in mind we operate with a low risk-tolerance.

We remain razor-focused in our approach to finding, fostering, growing and exiting our business interests in private equity. In doing so, we maintain a rigorous adherence to seeing things “far-off” which helps us to stay one step ahead of the curve.

Our private equity investing partners work with growing companies, special situations and buyout opportunities. Giving up a portion of your business for a sponsored minority or majority stake can be a great way to finance growth while concurrently assuaging your company’s diversification risk. We work directly with private equity groups (PEG), high net-worth individuals and corporate investors to find the right fit for an ownership stake in the business. This type of financing arrangement has a number of specific benefits including:

Enhanced input from outside management expertise. Many private equity firms work directly as secondary management, helping to consult the business to its next level of growth.

Risk mitigation through better diversification. Entrepreneurs avoid the risk of holding all their assets in a single business by allowing an equity investment to take some money off the table to invest in other more liquid assets.

Growth equity investments bring deeper pockets. Growth often takes capital which cash-strapped small businesses are unable to access. Equity investments can help ensure businesses capitalize on growth opportunities by investing with greater resources.

Our partner network of private investors brings a strong investment approach to every management buyout opportunity. Whether you’re looking to finance a full or partial buyout of your business, reputable and willing investor buyers can help assist in the buyout.

Like any other approach to financing, the structure of private equity investment deals can be as broad and diverse as the businesses themselves. Numerous and varied methods exist for funding, growing and buying existing businesses and their assets with private funds. Our partners work strategically with owners in equity financings for a strategic growth, merger and acquisition opportunities, co-investment deals in sponsor-led transactions, add-on investments with debt-augmentation, limited liability partnerships and private placement deals. When determining the type of financing needed, our partners take a holistic approach–assessing industry trends with individual company historical performance.

Why Private Equity

Each method of financing carries with it its own version of risk/return trade-off. And depending on the type and timing of an equity investment, investors will require different portions of the company pie. Private equity, venture or angel investments in startups tend to exact greater equity at the outset. Equity investments in later-stage companies represents a smaller risk for the investors and thus a smaller portion of the equity in the business. Private equity at any stage has particular advantages.

One of the greatest advantages of obtaining private equity funding is the assistance obtained from equity investors. Equity investors are often experienced and knowledgeable managers who can aid consulting input and assistance to both fledgling and prosperous businesses alike. Unlike debt financing, equity owners are share in the gains and not just the pains of the business cycles. This helps align goals of management and investors to ensure growth occurs. Furthermore, private equity financing takes away the risk of a bank securing your home or other assets as collateral in a loan. This can help alleviate some of the risk of capital procurement from the owner founder.

Building outsized returns for individual and institutional investors is what private equity is all about. Some might argue many private equity investments of recent vintage have failed to provide returns commensurate with investor mandates, but there are always outliers and exceptions. Typically private equity investments which perform well have a very tight, developed strategy. They find niches where value is being left on the table and find a way to further maximize theirs and their clients’ goals.
