In market segments like software, outsourcing, human resources, and safety there is a huge opportunity today for wealth creation
Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 25, 2007
Choosing ‘Useful Capital’ is fundamental to shareholder wealth creation for mid-market business owners reports Ephor Group in "Capital Options for Mid-Market Business Owners."
While capital is readily available for emerging businesses with $500k+ EBITDA, owner’s seeking ‘Useful Capital’ also acquire strategic and operational support. The difference between a solid and superior return is often the additional support Useful Capital brings which includes:
1. Functional expertise as well as distribution capabilities
2. Advisors that fund the capital provide more than board governance and financing controls; they provide industry guidance and operating expertise
3. Investors have invested in the particular business sector recently i.e. know the players, customers, partners, financials and key performance indicators intuitively
4. Advisors to ensure the market opportunity is maximized
Why do owners need capital in the first place? "In market segments like software, outsourcing, human resources, and safety there is a huge opportunity today for wealth creation," says Ephor Group founder Garry Meier.
There are many ‘financial engineering’ options available because of the abundance of capital which allow business owners to grow or transfer ownership of their organizations. These methods, recapitalization for instance, allow owners to take some cash out of the business while still retaining control. Other options allow the business to grow through acquisitions or expand their geographic footprint.
Institutional investors including venture capital and private equity have augmented growing businesses with seasoned management staff for years. Firms with ‘Useful Capital’ are notorious for above industry average returns, robust distribution and business development capabilities, and scalable processes and measurement systems. What is new is the investment focus on the mid-market technology and service businesses including firms previously too small for investment capital.
"What is clear is that emerging and stagnant firms need capital." says Garry Meier, Ephor Group founder. Furthermore, "People dependent businesses flourish when ‘Useful Capital’, bundled resources, and employees are all integrated in a unique business model and opportunity. One of the biggest mistakes we see is treating capital as a commodity. It’s disrespectful to the market opportunity."
