What are the advantages of selling to Amitz Capital vs. another buyer or private equity fund?
In private equity, your company will become part of the portfolio of companies that the private equity fund owns, and they will likely hire an executive to assume the role of CEO, who might bring a long his own management team into the company (CFO, COO, etc.). In a large corporation, they will likely put in place a VP to assume day to day operations and will likely create a cost reduction program to materialize synergies - i.e., look for ways to reduce administrative personnel and costs.
With Amitz Capital, Carlos Montesinos, our Managing Partner, will assume the role of CEO in the company with the sole objective of growing the business while continuing to provide great products and services to the company’s customers. This approach will preserve the legacy of the company you have built. Also, it makes us view the acquisition of your company as a long-term commitment to the business, and not just a transaction
