We partner with you through every step of the process.

The Transaction

When you choose Brass Ring as a prospective partner, we guarantee timely feedback and a professional response to all opportunities.

As experienced investors, we understand the importance of addressing the needs of all constituents in a transaction. We are sensitive to the delicate, time-consuming and often emotional nature of the business transition.

Our typical time to closing is 8 to 12 weeks from signing a letter of intent.

The Investment Period

We operate principally from a board of directors’ level at companies in which we invest. Our goal is to create a balanced and value-added board consisting of our two representatives from Brass Ring, members of management and an independent director.

We collaborate to ensure support for the strategic initiatives of management who run day-to-day operations, including:

  • Serving as a sounding board for management
  • Helping to establish and measure budgets and multi-year plans
  • Leading or supporting acquisitions
  • Facilitating and maintaining relationships with capital providers and other constituents

The Sale

During the sale we look to achieve liquidity on behalf of our investors. Market trends, financial performance and situational dynamics affect the duration of an investment.

Management teams are often the driving force behind the decision to sell. In most situations, this occurs in a 4 to 8 year timeframe.

The exit may take several forms:

  • Sale
  • Refinance of certain owners’ interests
  • Merger
