  • Buy-Side Services: For companies seeking a strategic acquisition, management buyout, or for investors seeking an opportunity, Gulf Atlantic Capital uses its network of industry sources to identify target companies. Once a target has been identified, Gulf Atlantic Capital has the resources to structure, negotiate, fund and close the transaction.
     
  • Sell-Side Services: Companies and ownership may seek to sell all or part of a company for a variety of reasons (ownership exit strategies, lender exit strategy, response to competitive pressure, and corporate restructuring). Gulf Atlantic Capital leverages its industry and investor relationships to generate a competitive bidding environment, maximizing transaction value.
     
  • Section 363 Sales: In certain situations, a sale of a company is best completed under the direction of the Bankruptcy Court (Section 363 sale). Gulf Atlantic Capital’s experience in working with troubled companies gives it the experience necessary to guide a company (or its lender/investor) through the complexities of a Section 363 sale to achieve a competitive bidding process and maximize the transaction value.
