Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 21, 2006
Thorpe Capital Group today announced a new, low-cost, sell-side, mergers and acquisitions advisory service targeted at the middle market. The firm calls the full service program the “2% Solution.”
The program targets middle market companies with revenues of $5 million to $50 million, with either strong earnings or strong revenue growth. The fee structure provides for a success fee equal to two percent of the total consideration paid in the transaction, subject to other terms and conditions. Notwithstanding the affordable pricing, this is a full service investment banking program.
Commenting on the new program, Thorpe Capital Group founder, Devin Thorpe said, “We have repeatedly seen situations in which quality middle market companies are choosing to do complex, once-in-a-lifetime transactions without help. Others are paying financial advisors five to ten percent of the value of their company just to help sell it. Through our NASD member firm, Thorpe Capital, Inc., we provide quality investment banking advice at better pricing than is offered by most unregistered M&A advisors.”
“Many entrepreneurs who have spent a lifetime building a business believe that they can’t afford or don’t need good advice.” Devin continued, “We think the key message that business leaders need to get is not only that they can afford good advice, but that they can’t afford not to get it. Think of it this way, a hypothetical increase of just ten percent of the value of a business represents approximately five times the cost of our 2% Solution.”
Thorpe Capital Group will select projects carefully to fit the new program. The firm looks for companies with good management and strong financial controls. All new projects require a formal engagement with terms that include a $5,000 monthly retainer that will be credited against the two percent success fee (the minimum success fee is $100,000). Pricing for other services, including buy-side M&A and capital placements will vary.
Thorpe Capital Group, LLC, is the parent of Thorpe Capital, Inc. (Member NASD). The firm helps middle market companies and quality venture stage businesses with M&A advisory services and private placements of debt and equity. Thorpe Capital Group serves companies with more than $5 million in revenue with strong profits or rapid growth. Thorpe Capital Group, itself, was listed on the MountainWest Capital Network’s 2005 Utah 100 list of the fastest growing companies in Utah.
