To maintain any successful professional relationship, service is a must. At its roots, service comes from understanding, anticipating and then answering another’s need. We see the services we provide in that same light.

How we can help you:

  • Sell-Side Advisory

    There’s nothing simple about selling a business. Which is why having a trustworthy partner with experience and expertise is essential. And not just a firm that pushes you toward the highest dollar amount, but one that can help you achieve all your goals. One that can protect you from being taken advantage of. And one that can help ensure your company’s legacy. So whether you’re ready to sell now, or you’re looking for long-term guidance to increase profits, lower risks and better position yourself to do so in the future, we can help. We can help guide you toward better offers and secure your position with an accurate business valuation by developing an authentic relationship with you. A relationship that begins with us listening to what you have to say.

  • Buy-Side Advisory

    In every transaction, there’s a buyer and a seller. Two parties sitting across a proverbial table seeking to gain the best value from the exchange. At Founders, we help many clients sell their business. But we also guide those looking to buy. This experience has given us the inherent knowledge and critical insights that come from sitting on both sides of that table. Insights which serve to guide your business toward smarter acquisitions and more successful outcomes.

  • Capital Solutions

    Founders believes that the key to a successful business is having the right capital structure in place to achieve the goals of its owners and stakeholders. We can assist you in creating, evaluating, and executing a capital strategy that is optimal for you and your company. Whether it be a refinancing of an existing lender, a recapitalization for shareholder liquidity, growth financing, or capital advisory in distressed situations, Founders brings the experience, creativity, keen market insight, and access to leading capital providers to assist you in achieving your goals. Within our special situations services we can assist you in highly complex situations such as negotiating forbearance, extensions and covenant relief with existing lenders and investors, accessing alternative capital sources such as debt funds and mezzanine and equity funds to support bridge or long term financing requirements, or guiding you through a restructuring of your business. All of this is done in the spirit of optimizing the outcome for you and your company.
