Sustainable Acquisition – The Fennimore Competitive Advantage

Value Proposition:

Clients recognize the need to achieve distinction by adding an operational (EBITDA, Working Capital, Competitive Positioning and Management Effectiveness) perspective to their evaluation process. Acting as a resource extension to owners and management teams, we provide extensive operational expertise, resources, and tools to assist in maximizing performance.

Two functional applications:

  • Pre-acquisition: winning auctions and avoiding bad deals.
  • Post-acquisition: Identify and implement high-impact profit improvements

We have a relentless, tenacious drive to help our equity clients acquire and build winning companies. Our “advantage” is to quickly identify and effectively quantify the opportunities, attain measurable and sustainable results, and turn them from concept to reality.
