The Majority Recap: An Owner's Tool To Keep A Seat At The Table
We often come across successful business owners facing a common dilemma: they are nowhere near retirement age or desiring to exit their business, but they have a need for liquidity, growth capital or other types of support in order to seize opportunities in the market. If this is you, then a majority recap may be the logical choice for you.
What is a Majority Recapitalization?
A majority recapitalization is a transaction whereby a business owner(s) sells a majority interest in the company to an investor to raise cash while maintaining a significant minority ownership stake and continuing to manage the recapitalized business. This may be the right type of transaction if you desire:
A liquidity event, but do not want to give up your business
Greater operational flexibility by restructuring the company’s balance sheet
A partner that can help you build-out your team and bring a new perspective to the table
To be less involved in certain mundane day-to-day tasks, while being able to focus on the parts of the business where your time is far more valuable
To maintain the company culture that you spent years creating
To share the burden of business ownership going forward
If any of these describe your situation, a majority recap may be worth considering. Please feel free to reach out to us directly if you would like to discuss by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (281) 719-9332.
