Our Value to You
Dealing Directly with Decision Makers
With Amitz Capital you will be dealing directly with our Managing Partner & CEO, who represents the group of investors in the fund. This allows us to be nimble, objective and effective at every point of contact
After buying your business, 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
Alignment of Interests
Our ownership approach enables us to be flexible in regard to your involvement in the business after you have sold it to us, i.e. your involvement (as interim executive, advisor, or board member) is negotiable but not required
Typical Company Sell Process
We will have a sequence of introductory communication (emails, meetings, calls/videoconferencing) where we get to know you, your company history, business model, and general overview of your financial performance. We will likely sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement ("NDA") so we both feel comfortable sharing information. The key objective for us is to understand if the opportunity fits with our criteria
We will provide you a Letter of Intent (“LOI”) indicating our interest to acquire your business which will include a proposed acquisition price and a preliminary list of terms for the potential transaction. The key objective for us is to have a general understanding that we have a willing seller and a willing buyer
6 - 8 Weeks
We will analyze of the company's financial, legal, operational, and commercial information. The timeframe of this phase depends on how fast you may provide the requested information to us. The key objective for us is to understand what we are buying and make sure we are negotiating a fair deal for both parties
4 - 8 weeks
We will negotiate the acquisition contracts, define final and binding terms in the transaction, sign the final documents and pay you. The key objective here is to create a win-win scenario for both of us
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.
