Market Observations

An increasing number of small business owners are approaching retirement age. Concerns over succession plans are pushing more owners to look to exit via a sale.

The traditional investment fund model cannot participate at such a small scale, and therefore the supply of businesses coming to market is outpacing demand.

There is an abundance of funded sponsors looking for middle-market businesses to buy.

Conditions are ideal for consolidators with:
1. Access to flexible & patient capital
2. Operational experience
3. M&A experience
