July 11 2012
Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (BGL) is pleased to present our summer release of Smart M&A, a publication focused on communicating trends and success stories for business owners and operators in the middle market.
Our cover story features an interview with Christopher Mills, the founder of the U.K.-based private equity firm Harwood Capital. Mr. Mills speaks candidly about the opportunities and challenges facing private equity investors in today’s dynamic environment and offers insight into Harwood’s strategy as a builder of middle market companies. With a niche in the public-to-private market, Harwood identifies undervalued businesses with strong fundamentals in need of strategic focus, proving its approach to be a win-win for management teams seeking liquidity and the opportunity to build a more valuable business with a new financial partner. Also inside, experts from the deal and legal community share their views on accelerating growth and pitfalls to avoid when selling your business.
2012 continues to be an active year for deal making. Capital excess is driving deal flow as slow growth in the uncertain economic climate fuels the need for acquisitions. Quality businesses are in high demand. As a middle market focused firm with an operating history spanning more than two decades across a range of business cycles, we can assist you in navigating today’s rapidly-changing marketplace to help maximize your strategic alternative.
