Here are a few case studies that bring to life what Stellar Ventures can do to help your company:
Problem: Can't find good sales people to help you grow your business?
Solution: Acquire a competitor!
We were approached by a company that provides computer networking solutions to New England companies. The client was displeased with its nominal growth rate. Within 3 months, we located a number of acquisition candidates. Within 5 months we valued, negotiated, structured and financed the best opportunity for our client, who immediately grew the operation by more than 30%.
Problem: Can't stand your boss' conservative anti-growth attitude?
Solution: Buy out your boss!
When the management team of this Connecticut service company got tired of watching the owner miss out on great growth opportunities, we assisted them in acquiring the business. The banks, the attorneys, the accountants and the owner all told us it wouldn't be possible, but we arranged over
$2,500,000 in debt and equity financing to close the opportunity of a lifetime for the management buy-out group.
Problem: Don't like running the business anymore?
Solution: Sell it!
After assisting a Connecticut Web site hosting company acquire two customer bases, we assisted them in the sale of the operation for a magnificent profit. The acquisitions provided them the ability to grow and develop the long-term value that is highly profitable and highly valued. The client was able to exit the business with the present value of those highly profitable earnings and is now independently wealthy.
Problem: Need to manage a financial crisis in your operation or be forced to close your doors?
Solution: Reorganize under Chapter 11!
A Connecticut nursing home ran into trouble with its labor union, and the eventual strike caused the company to lose many of its residents, threatening a complete liquidation of a three-generation old business. We guided them through the process of reorganization under Chapter 11, obtained financing to restructure all of their debts--including the IRS--and even testified in bankruptcy court that the available financing we obtained for the company was the best available option for the client. The plan was confirmed and the nursing home was saved, without the owners losing any equity ownership.
Problem: Need working capital to grow your business but your bank won't give you a loan?
Solution: Find the right bank that will say Yes!
This New York company moved to Connecticut and was growing rapidly. The client's lender was unable to grant any increase to the existing credit line. We created a financing plan for them, solicited a request among a number of qualified lenders and received several offers. The client closed the transaction and increased their available working capital five-fold--without providing additional collateral or paying exorbitant fees.
