On behalf of Promontory Point Capital (www.promcp.com), we wish you a Happy New Year.

With a continued focus on providing deep investment banking experience exclusively to privately-held businesses, 2011 represented another successful year for Promontory Point Capital and our clients. Through our strong network of lenders, lawyers, accountants, and other trusted business professionals, we were introduced to a number of established Midwest-based businesses wishing to explore opportunities and resolve financial challenges. With the U.S. financial markets showing signs of stabilization and the economy poised for growth in 2012, many companies are seeking advice on growth and expansion opportunities, securing capital beyond bank debt, as well as how to explore the spectrum of shareholder transition alternatives.

As an extension to our clients’ senior management teams, PPC successfully closed 7 client engagements during 2011. These engagements involved ownership transition and M&A objectives, debt restructuring & recapitalization initiatives, and securing new financing for growth and expansion.

In addition to these highlighted 2011 successes, other clients engaged PPC to achieve objectives involving strategic partnerships, licensing arrangements, as well as profit improvement efforts. Since 2003, our firm has helped over 70 companies explore financial and strategic alternatives for their business including the arrangement of debt and equity financing, the evaluation of business sale or recapitalization options, or the planning and execution of growth strategies involving acquisition, merger, or joint venture.

Situations where we have been helpful include:

  • Business owners and management teams wishing to better understand their options relative to ownership liquidity strategies or financing alternatives.
  • Growth orientated companies requiring financing for expansion.
  • Funding needed to finance acquisitions, shareholder redemptions, or buyouts.
  • Under-capitalized businesses needing an injection of “junior” capital beyond bank debt, such as subordinated debt or equity.
  • Companies over-extended with their current lender or bank group, including forbearance situations.
In addition to the aforementioned, we would also like to acknowledge the success of our ongoing affiliation with Chicago-based Promontory Point Partners. Through a continued focus on stabilizing and improving equity value, PPP also enjoyed another successful year helping distressed clients return to profitability.

We welcome your confidential inquiry and encourage you to visit our website at www.promcp.com for more information on our firm's capabilities and other client successes. On behalf of Promontory Point Capital, we wish you a prosperous 2012.
