Cascade Partners goes beyond just organizing a sale and creates a partnership that creates long-term value for our clients.
Our experience as operators and investors provides unique perspectives not found at other firms. We know what buyers are looking for and we strengthen and emphasize the right features to the right prospects to maximize value.
Our clients include privately held companies, publicly traded corporations and private equity firms. We recognize that for many closely held businesses, the economic value of a deal is but one critical aspect. Preservation of a firm’s legacy, the well-being of their staff and commitment to a community may be important as well.
Our research-driven process begins with identifying our client partner’s unique points of value, operating position or market position. We research current buyers focusing on what they find important. We source potential acquirers who can benefit from a strategic acquisition.
Like most investment banking firms, we can define the options available to our clients. Unlike most firms, we also present the implications and what those mean to shareholders, the management team and employees after the transaction.
At Cascade Partners, strategy drives the deal. We do not allow the deal to drive the strategy.
