Client Alert: Sellers Beware - Private Equity Deal Structures and the Potential Loss of Sale Proceeds

In a new Freeborn Client Alert, Partner and Co-Leader of the Firm’s Corporate Practice Group, Jeff Mattson, shares insight on how a sale to private equity can be a great option for a Seller. For example, a private equity (“PE”) firm may provide additional management, proven processes, best practices, and additional capital to take a company to another level. A PE firm may permit the Seller to retain a portion of its equity during this next phase of growth, giving the Seller “another bite at the apple” when the PE firm executes the next liquidity event. Most importantly, a PE firm is often the highest bidder for the target Company. Jeff discusses how he's helped clients of every description sell to PE firms, and the overwhelming majority of these Sellers are happy they did.
