Strategic Advisory

Map Your Path to a Great Outcome

BlackArch's strategic advisory practice exists for select companies early on the path to a great outcome. We offer a unique, signature Roadmap For ActionTM advisory service for private company owners - our guide to a well-thought-out transaction.

We start with a valuation to provide private owners with a baseline value. We then work with shareholders to understand their economic and non-economic goals.

  • A menu of strategic alternatives for achieving liquidity, which could include debt recapitalization, transitional or growth capital, minority partnerships, change-of-control transactions or other options.
  • Concrete steps, timelines and deliverables for shareholders, management, outside advisers and BlackArch.
  • Collaboration with a company's management team to align their incentives and prepare them for a transaction and succession.
  • Access to advice on tax structuring, wealth management and other financial planning issues.
  • Regular monitoring of a company's progress with the goal of maintaining momentum for owners and managers alike.
Our strategic advisory services have been designed for the founder/owner-operator, but are equally adaptable to our financial sponsor and corporate clients as they seek to maximize their goals and objectives.
