Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!
Private equity rollups have become an increasingly popular mechanism for SMB investors to turn a profit. The play goes something like this – buy a bunch of smaller companies at a discount and then sell them as a packaged asset at a premium. Straightforward, but incredibly difficult to execute.
In this week’s featured Industry Trends article, we take a look at the importance of dedicated long term planning when it comes to implementing a successful rollup strategy. Defining your strategy using a “consolidation curve” can be an incredibly effective way to plan, resource, and benchmark your progress throughout the strategy’s lifecycle.
Our featured buy-side members this week include a North American and European-focused PE firm, a new PE firm headquartered in Dallas, and a private investment firm targeting the healthcare and business services industries. On the sell-side we’ll introduce you to a Miami-based investment bank and an M&A advisory firm run by former business operators and executives.
