Small PE Fund Found their Next Deal for Under $30,000.

CAPTARGET services are priced significantly less than traditional buy side shops.

50 targets sourced, and a deal set to close.

Formerly independent sponsors, this new, California based 2 MD private equity firm was looking to pivot towards investing their own capital into larger deals.

Since they were no longer relying heavily on outside capital sources, and since they had no management fee to offset origination/search costs, the firm was very cost sensitive and hesitant to pay finders fees.

Additionally, as a small team, each MD wore many hats leaving the deal origination effort to be handled sporadically.

Project Overview

Small firm felt they couldn't compete with high priced deals.

This small team felt they could not compete on highly visible deals that commanded high price premiums. The group started working with CAPTARGET on a 6-month commitment basis.  

CAPTARGET executed a search strategy that incorporated both direct outreach and working with on-market intermediary represented deals, carrying a cost of $2,500 per month with no obligation to pay any success or other finders fees.

Consistently source new conversations with acquisition targets, and close a deal within a year.
