OUR EDGE

Pursuant Capital is a fully-committed, local buyer and operator of Florida-based businesses. Our goal is to maintain and grow businesses and their owners' legacies for the long term. We do so by providing liquidity, growth capital and day-to-day management. We are not a traditional private equity firm or strategic buyer:
  Traditional Competitor
Your Legacy, Our Commitment 100% of our time and effort to growing your company One of many business; little time or attention Absorbed as one of many divisions / subsidiaries
Timeline We are in it for the long haul 3-5 year strict timeline Depends on competitor
Day 1
Post-Closing
We operate the company day-to-day alongside employees and advisors Company strategy dictated to employees by PE firm to maximize profit Integrate company into competitor; company likely goes away
Equity
Funding
"Permanent Capital" from entrepreneurs and operators Large institutions with strict mandates Competitor's balance sheet and credit lines
Goal Long Term Growth Slash expenses, add debt, position company for re-sale Integrate company into the competitor
Seller
Involvement
Depends on seller's desires; we are flexible Full-time commitment None
At Pursuant Capital, we understand that some sellers want to maintain part-time involvement or ownership with their business after the sale, while other sellers want to walk away completely at closing. We have the flexibility to structure a transaction in any way that best matches the seller's preferences.
