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:

Post-Closing

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.
