Specialized investment banking services
Successful businesses are built on the commitment and drive of entrepreneurs. We believe that business owners should demand no less of their advisors when it comes time for an exit transition or growth capital infusion.
Whether you’re preparing for an exit, re-financing or growth capital infusion, you deserve a partner with industry-specific expertise and an appreciation for your unique journey. At the same time, you should expect your advisor to have a world-class strategic process, strong acquirer and investor relationships, and a track record of exceptional execution. That’s us.
As a team of passionate experienced professionals, we are never satisfied with the “standard approach”. Instead, we listen carefully to our clients’ objectives, delve into their business, and immerse ourselves into their unique story. Then, we act as fierce advocates and transparent guides to unlock the full potential value of their company.
As a result, our clients trust us to help them achieve their objectives and to work to ensure a thriving future for their business.
Our investment banking professionals have collectively completed 500+ advisory engagements in our industries of focus. Here’s a sample of those transactions.
*Denotes engagements completed by an Objective Principal prior to joining Objective.
“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.”
