A Private Equity Opportunity
After running a technology solutions company for thirty years the founders were ready to retire. As they imagined the legacy the sale would create it was important to keep the family business culture post-acquisition.
Their first priority was keeping the business in the community and retaining employees and client relationships.
With a clear vision for the ideal acquirer the Destined team built the acquisition roadmap. They developed a targeted list of private equity firms with long-term investment timelines. All potential acquirers were required to demonstrate extensive operating experience in the industry.
