Corporate Finance

For both private and public companies, Aspenwood Capital’s distribution capabilities provide a platform for highly successful financing transactions that fit your corporate strategy. Its experienced principals maintain strong relationships with all types of institutional investors including private equity funds, venture capital funds, mezzanine and senior debt lenders, hedge funds, Business Development Companies (BDC’s) and select individual accredited investors.  Relationships with such a broad array of institutional and individual investors helps ensure a wide net within which Aspenwood can provide a targeted investor audience and significantly enhances the potential for a successful financing transaction.

Aspenwood Capital works primarily with profitable growth-stage companies in locating all manner of debt and equity financings for growth, acquisitions, recapitalizations and refinancing purposes.

Aspenwood also maintains close relationships with several trustworthy broker-dealers and other investment bankers with which it shares deal flow and placement opportunities.  This allows greater distribution and additional strength in ensuring a successful financing transaction.

Mergers & Acquisitions

The executives at Aspenwood are experienced operators themselves and typically represent high growth, small and middle-market companies. Aspenwood provides a full range of buy-side and sell-side transaction related services in situations such as mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, strategic partnerships, and management buyouts. Our merger and acquisition transactions have historically fallen in the $5 million to $50 million range.

On the sell-side:  Whether a business owner is resolving family business succession issues or needs liquidity through an equity recapitalization, Aspenwood can successfully guide and execute the transaction. We work in the best interests of our customer by paying close attention to the potential impact on their family, shareholders, and employees.  We understand the emotional side of the business from the seller's standpoint through personal experience. The scope of our involvement has ranged from full-scale representation, in which we prepare the information memorandum, identify potential buyers and negotiate the transaction, to special assignments where we may be retained to negotiate a specific transaction with a previously identified buyer or investor.

On the buy-side: Aspenwood represents corporate and private investors in acquiring businesses. Such assignments may involve acquisition searches or targeted projects. In either case, Aspenwood’s extensive database of business owners, investors and financial professionals provides a significant proprietary resource to engage for relevant targets.

Our goal in Mergers and Acquisitions is to execute the best result for all parties through communication and understanding. We realize that each customer is different and strive to help them reach the goals which are unique and specific to them alone. Aspenwood deploys a risk mitigation strategy through strong relationships with legal service and CPA firms. We work to maximize value through research and information driven negotiation.
