What we've done

divest, acquire, sell, buy, merge, close
We represent both buyers and sellers. Many sell-side clients are public companies wishing to divest units that are no longer "core" to their strategy, or they are entrepreneurial firms whose owners are looking to gain scale and realize liquidity.

Our buy-side clients are often large private equity firms for whom we conduct searches in certain targeted industries.

We attract most of our M&A engagements through word-of-mouth. We are fortunate to enjoy a reputation as "quick studies" who deliver thorough, quality work.

See below for a sample of some KC success stories. However, many of our clients value discretion: if you have interest, we'd be delighted to discuss our transactions in more detail with you in person.
