Amberfield is seeking to acquire a small to medium size business in the United States. The acquisition search and company operations will be led by Ryan Turk with capital, expertise, and guidance provided by his group of investors.
Amberfield is different than other potential business buyers in some important ways, which are advantageous for a business owner seeking liquidity and the opportunity to step back from management responsibilities. We believe in our ability to complete a transaction in a timely, professional, and financially beneficial way for business owners.
The following table outlines how Amberfield is different than other options:
Private Equity Fund
Full commitment to one company and long-term value creation with no preset exit deadline
Manage a portfolio and interested in short-term value creation and investment exit.
Company is absorbed into a subsidiary or division of larger entity
Owner can sell their entire stake and transition day-to-day responsibilities
Typically requires 2-3 year commitment and financial stake from owner
One point of contact. Flexible terms to ensure interests of all parties involved
Complex; seller usually at a disadvantage dealing against large team
Long term compensation based on future performance
