Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) October 02, 2014
Deal Capital, a middle market merger & acquisition advisory firm, announces the expansion of operations to include reverse mergers for taking companies public. The company will maintain most of its current focus on firms looking to sell their businesses, but is also looking to expand its current suite of services to include liquidity for private business owners looking to take their company public.
“Reverse mergers represent a very small potential opportunity for us as a company, but it’s an area where we have had some interest lately and for which we have needed to ad some qualified expertise,” says Carl Christensen, Managing Director. “There are certainly opportunities within our existing client base to provide liquidity from an event similar to an IPO, albeit rare. We’re working on a solution to take advantage of these opportunities,” he says.
Most retiring business owners in the middle market seek a traditional approach to exiting their business. They may seek the help of a qualified intermediary like a business broker or investment banker. These types of firms are great at working on finding a seller and most of the time that is exactly what a business needs. In other instances, the business owner may need something a bit different which could include a reverse merger for taking a company public.
“In most cases, a reverse merger is absolutely the wrong fit for our clients,” says Christensen, but in some cases our clients may require a reverse merger for a qualified Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), capital for an acquisition or industry consolidation or the ability to exchange stock as a compensation tool or bargaining chip for employees. When unique situations occur that could benefit our clients in the use of a reverse merger, we want to be ready to act,” he says.
