For the business owner seeking substantial liquidity, but willing to continue to lead the business for several years, or for the owner looking for capital to grow the company, a private equity recapitalization might be the best fit.  ESOP DiagramIn a private equity recapitalization, an institutional investor, like a private equity group (PEG), acquires an interest in the company with the agreement that the owner and his or her team will stay on to grow the business both organically as well as through acquisitions. 

In a recapitalization, the business owner receives substantial personal liquidity and  diversification for the interest sold.  Although a PEG typically requires a controlling interest, this strategy allows the business owner to remain a significant shareholder and continue to be the driving force behind the company.  Also, unlike strategic buyers, PEG buyers often look to maintain the brands they acquire, realizing the value in brand recognition and loyalty of the management, employees and clients.  Therefore, post-transaction, the company will likely continue to operate under the same brand name. 

As financial buyers, PEGs do not want to be involved in the daily operations of the business, but rather are looking to contribute capital and other resources to help leverage the talents of the existing best-in-class team.  The PEG's goal will be to partner with the business owner to grow the company over a period of four to seven years, on average, and then sell it to generate a return to their investors.  Most equity groups have a well-defined strategy as to the type and size of companies that they invest in, how they structure their deals and their investment time horizons. 

This deal is often the best choice for an owner who wishes to get substantial liquidity off the table, yet keep their brand and their team to grow the business with continued upside and significantly lower personal risk.  The best candidate companies for a private equity recapitalization will have a well-thought out plan in place to grow the business more aggressively.
