"Our present focus is on growth through mergers & acquisitions of companies with $500k+ in revenue."
~ Riley LeBrun, President, Epic Consulting
Our 8-Step M & A Process
Our Wish List
Founder or Family Run: We find that our approach resonates the most with a founder or family run company that is looking for the right long-term home for their business
Company Size: From one to fifty employees, we can create an offer based on whatever size you are
Asset Base: We prefer businesses with a strong mix of assets on their balance sheet
Location: We are headquartered in Los Angeles, but open to cloud-based or Southwest & West Coast
Industry: Although we are primarily focused on: technology, services, manufacturing & distribution, we are open to looking at any industry and will change our industry focus from time to time
Control: We are looking to acquire at least 51% of the company but our intent is to purchase 100%
Management: We prefer businesses with an existing management team but are open to any structure
Revenue: looking for companies that have some form of recurring, predictable, or contractual revenue
Scalable: looking for deals that have a repeatable process, or an idea for one that is untapped
Who We Do It
Simple: we want to grow. To do that, our strategy is to scale by acquisition in the areas where we can add value to our existing businesses. We intend to purchase established companies, like yours, for their leads, revenue, technology, IP, customers and management team, all of which will be integrated into our existing operation.
By scaling this way, we intend to quickly grow our revenue, customer base, while consolidating our resources instead of waiting on growth of revenue to dictate it. Concurrently, we create new infrastructure, intellectual property and operational value to serve a larger customer base.
How We Acquire
We Build On Your Success. We believe in preserving and building upon the core of what makes a company special and investing in growth by building upon, rather than tearing down, the foundations that have made your business a proven success.
We Champion Your Good People. Partnering with those on the current management team who wish to work with us and finding ways to empower all of the staff is fundamental to our approach. We want to promote and provide opportunity to those who are in your inner circle and willing to be a part of ours. We even make a point of offering key staff an equity stake.
We Work With You And Your Team. We know that good partnerships are created when both parties (along with key management staff) are treated fairly and make a collective effort to collaborate. Why do business any other way? It's one of our core beliefs that everyone involved had a voice, was treated fairly and with integrity.
Once We Love It, We Close On It. After coming to a mutual agreement, and having done our due diligence, we can close quickly. Escrow can be as little as 45 days to 60 depending on the state of your financials and legal entity documentation. We pride ourselves on our quick nature especially for deals that other buyers just can't figure out.
