Growing businesses need capital, which is especially
challenging for smaller businesses, especially in today's fast paced
markets. Owners often miss major market opportunities because they do not
have enough capital to seize them. Owners of growing businesses must also
recognize the benefits of diversifying their net worth. As their company
grows, it often becomes the single largest asset of the entire family.
Many business owners mistakenly believe that their only
option for liquidity is to sell their business to a competitor. A
recapitalization transaction, either for a controlling stake or a minority
position, is an option that can be ideal for those business owners and
managers who are committed to growing their business, but need to address
estate planning and portfolio diversification issues.
In today's marketplace, private equity funds have more than

businesses. The challenge for these businesses is gaining access that this
capital through a sound transaction strategy, a targeted approach to the market,
and an experienced negotiating team. SGCA can help.
