ADVISORY

We partner with private equity at every stage of the investment lifecycle

Deal Origination

  • Challenge: Highly competitive and volatile markets creating unrealistic valuations
  • Solution: Executive-led deal flow. L Capital works with backable executives to develop investment theses with actionable targets not found through traditional market channels
  • Result: Supplement existing deal pipelines with proprietary, off-market opportunities and uncover hidden value

Sector Development

  • Challenge: Preferred buyers are increasingly highly specialized investment firms with an angle. Firms entering new sectors often lack  institutional knowledge, depth of experience, and/or relationships.
  • Solution: L Capital identifies and introduces C-suite executive advisors with deep sector expertise to identify targets, market map, forecast trends, flag regulatory issues, etc.
  • Result: Develop comprehensive, sector-specific investment theses early before assets come to market.

Diligence Support

  • Challenge: Rising valuations and compressed diligence windows. Deal teams need to ensure they’re spending time and resources on the right deals.
  • Solution: Bespoke pre-deal matchmaking with high-altitude executives. Industry veterans, “general athletes”, or functional experts partnering with firms on critical diligence questions.
  • Result: Improve the quality of diligence, develop a differentiated “angle” early, build credibility with the sell-side, minimize broken deal expenses
