RA Capital Advisors specializes in serving the needs of privately-held companies. Our professionals have extensive experience assisting business owners with obtaining liquidity through the partial or complete sale of their business, securing growth capital from institutional sources to expand operations, and recapitalizing the enterprise when liquidity is needed and the owners want to maintain partial or full control.
Navigating the M&A market is something many private businesses only do once, yet doing so carries significant future consequences for both the shareholders and the company. Our firm and our principals have been recognized as leaders in M&A and have extensive experience structuring transactions. As the company’s representative, we leverage our experience to optimize both value and economic terms to meet our clients’ objectives. Whether our client is looking to acquire new businesses or to realize a full or partial sale, we provide a high-touch approach to guide the transaction to a successful close.
Companies that seek to make acquisitions or pursue other growth opportunities do not always have the funds readily available to execute on management’s strategy. Our team pursues targeted sources of debt and equity capital to obtain the best value and terms for our clients – allowing the company’s management to execute their vision on sound financial footing.
As a main source of their personal wealth, private business owners may desire to realize some liquidity without exiting the company. A common situation arises when inactive partners wish to sell while active owners wish to stay. RA Capital Advisors assists owners with strategic options including dividend recapitalizations, sales of minority stakes, and ESOP alternatives (analyzed in partnership with The Beyster Institute) to best match all owners’ desire for liquidity with ongoing control and involvement with the business.
