Seller Representation

Our objective is to understand our client’s goals and objectives and then apply our experience, judgment and creativity to help them achieve those goals and objectives.

Our fundamental process when assisting companies that wish to divest their interests revolves around recommending a strategic plan of action. We utilize the following process to maximize shareholder value:

  • Perform preliminary due diligence to assess market conditions and impact on timing
  • Recommend strategic alternatives for achieving client’s goals and objectives
  • Establish a relevant range of values based on preliminary market valuation
  • Prepare strategic and concise offering memorandum
  • Introduce client to carefully selected group of prospective buyers while creating urgency and competition
  • Assist in negotiations, due diligence and closing

At ICG, many of our clients are at critical junctures in the life cycle of the Company. ICG has been involved in transactions that exhibit the following characteristics:

  • Retirement and estate planning
  • Lack of operating capital or growth capital
  • Irreconcilable shareholder or management disputes
  • Shareholders desire for liquidity and asset diversification
  • Management succession issues
  • Lack of interested or capable family members or other management
  • Industry valuation multiples create a “window of opportunity” for divestment

ICG Capital Partners can assist owners and management teams in implementing a strategy that will yield the best possible outcome, while maintaining cohesiveness and maximizing shareholder value.
