CASE STUDY: How StoneCreek Capital Facilitated a Management Buyout


A U.S.-based Private Equity Group engaged an investment banking firm to sell off a Division from one of their portfolio companies.  After failing to receive any offers meeting their minimal valuation requirements, the sale process was terminated and the Division was pulled off the market.



The President of the Division believed he could significantly increase the Division’s value if he could acquire the Division himself.



Being taken seriously, since the President had no experience acquiring a company and didn’t have the financial wherewithal to fund the acquisition.



StoneCreek Capital and the President teamed up as partners to acquire the Division. Together, they submitted an offer that was acceptable to the Private Equity Group owners and successfully raised the capital to close the transaction. In addition, their financing sources reserved additional capital for add-on acquisitions.
