Since the pandemic became official in March, we are operating in an unprecedented economic environment that is unpredictable and rapidly developing. Over the next 12 to 18 months, most owners will need to adapt their business model to the new normal; some will succeed, some will not.
This set of circumstances creates a unique window of opportunity for entrepreneurially driven C-level executives who have demonstrated success in enhancing value to create business buyout opportunities of their own. If you’ve ever wanted to pursue your own buyout with meaningful equity upside, this will be a worthwhile session for you.
Founded in 1992, StoneCreek Capital is an independent private equity sponsor group that specializes in partnering with ‘Backable’ executives who want to pursue value-added acquisition opportunities.
During the course of this session, StoneCreek will cover the following topics:
- Investment criteria: quantitative and qualitative
- What makes an executive backable
- How you can get a management buyout done in a pandemic
- Partnering with StoneCreek
