Relentless commitment.

Entrepreneurs invest countless time, energy, and resources into building their business from the ground up. When it comes time to sell the business or secure growth capital, everything is on the line — emotionally and financially. We believe that business owners with such a deep commitment to their business, deserve more than just a common service provider; they deserve a partner.

Fierce advocacy. The OCP Way.

We believe every client brings forth a unique set of objectives. And that it is only through investing the time to fully understand their holistic aims that we can together as partners define and measure success. With “success” mutually defined, we can focus the full power of our team’s experience, sophistication, and creativity to work to achieve superior outcomes that fulfill our clients’ unique objectives. The result… An experience that you can look back on with satisfaction and confidence, knowing that you made all the right decisions. That’s success.

What others say about us...

“Objective’s competitive process was really quite impressive. They put word out to their extensive network of buyers, so many interested parties came to the table with solid offers that gave objective a little bit of leverage to drive the price up and it also allowed the partners to have options. There is absolutely no way we would have been able to sell this company without Objective.”

“The unexpected benefits of working with Objective was that it was actually fun. I can’t even believe how supported I felt during the whole thing. I really thought it was going to be a lot more work than it was. They negotiated exceptionally well and they knew deal structure well enough to get the right elements into the deal so that the outcome was the best it could be.”

“The Objective team are truly seller-goal oriented. You want a partner who shares your thought process and values — someone you are completely comfortable with and trust. I achieved that quickly with the Objective team. And, money isn’t the only consideration, there has to be advance thought put into what happens during and AFTER the deal is over so all objectives are hit — Objective does this exceptionally well.”

“I felt like we were partners in the process. We both had responsibilities and the partnership came through to achieve success. You don’t find that trust often in this business.”

“These guys are very organized and proactive in setting expectations for each phase. I was very impressed at how quickly and thoroughly they understood my business so soon after engaging with them. It showed me they had the right perspective to get the best return for me.”

“When you’re talking to a potential purchaser or investor, you want forward looking financials to be well thought through and 100% accurate. The highly-detailed financial projections Objective helped us develop gave us confidence that all possible scenarios had been thoroughly vetted — allowing expectations to be correctly set.”
