Menu of services
The firm divides its work into four departments: business transfers, business valuations, capital raises and management buyouts. Within its business transfers department, R&F offers seven “transfer channels,” or methods of transferring their business, that owners can select. Those channels are employees, charitable trusts, family, co-owners, outside-retire (where an owner can pass his business on to an outsider and then retire), outside-continue and going public.
The company’s business valuation unit can be used by owners who wish to determine their business’ market, economic, fair market, fair or collateral value for secured lending, legal and tax purposes. Meanwhile, Robertson’s capital raises department helps creates capital for companies for a range of scenarios and situations, secured lending, mezzanine capital, private equity and other private capital types.
The firm’s management buyout department manages both leveraged and equity sponsored buyouts for its clients. For leveraged buyout deals, R&F uses the equity and debt from the management of a firm to pay for the buyout. In an equity sponsored buy out transaction, that ultimately gives less ownership to managers, more conservative forms of obtaining capital are typically used.
