As a financial advisory firm, American Working Capital (“AWC”) is focused exclusively on providing expert advisory services to address ownership transition and growth capital needs in privately-held middle market companies. We provide our clients with experience-based solutions, and unbiased advice. AWC partners are highly skilled in executing strategic transactions and have extensive operational, advisory and capital markets backgrounds, drawing upon over a 200 years of collective middle market experience. AWC partners are among a select group of stewards of employee ownership. We have extensive experience in transactions and investments involving broader-based employee ownership or employee stock ownership plans (“ESOPs”). Despite attractive opportunities and substantive needs, businesses with ESOPs or other forms of broader-based employee ownership have been challenged to attract private equity and mezzanine capital to affect changes in ownership or fund growth capital needs while establishing or preserving their employee ownership structure and culture. AWC has the collective depth, skill sets and capital to greatly expand the strategic options available to both aspiring management-employee teams; as well as established ESOP companies.
Our comprehensive array of strategic advisory and execution capabilities allows us to meet the needs of our clients and provide an outstanding level of service in connection with a variety of strategic alternatives and transaction processes, including:
