for Buyers hero

Experienced Partnership

We advise both buyers and sellers on  privately negotiated transactions to achieve optimal transaction outcomes for both parties.

We advise both buyers and sellers on  privately negotiated transactions which allows us to execute confidential transactions that align the intrinsic values and interests of our clients with companies we engage. This approach provides sellers the opportunity to fully explore all options before making a decision. Our experienced professionals discreetly and confidentially bring buyers together with companies seeking investment capital, and sellers seeking majority or minority sale transactions. Our goal is to find the common ground where the values, interests, and goals of buyers and sellers are in perfect alignment.

Targeted Search

Our proprietary Go Deep™ methodology allows us to conduct focused and highly effective searches.

Our Targeted Search Program combines sophisticated database management tools and a thorough understanding of your requirements to conduct focused and highly effective global searches. Utilizing our extensive research resources including 15 years of proprietary data, as well as our collective relationships and significant transaction experience, we screen targets based on an interactive dialogue that centers on your strategic acquisition needs. CHP designates a primary point of contact for each platform and add-on search, and that principal follows an industry leading process involving Target definition, rigorous research, and discrete Target contact following the Client’s stated parameters for ideal acquisition candidates. We identify and engage with exclusive targets that are outside the standard auction process.

  • Our targeted searches are 100% executed by our team of investment banking professionals who bring extensive market knowledge and transaction experience developed at bulge bracket firms and over hundreds of transactions.

Executive Sponsorship

Access experienced operating executives that know how to lead enterprises.

Private Equity firms have created a reservoir of over $500 billion in the last few years to recast the corporate landscape. The need is only more critical now for experienced operating executives to lead these new enterprises. Our Executive Sponsorship Program makes it possible for seasoned operating executives to participate in the development of private equity transactions and ultimately to run the acquired companies.

Partnering closely with management is central to our investment philosophy. We believe that the most successful opportunities are created by management teams that have increased operating autonomy and meaningful equity ownership in their companies.

For those executives who have held top operating positions and have the desire to take the CEO helm in a new business, the Executive Sponsorship Program is an opportunity for a substantive and confidential conversation with recognized leaders in closing successful middle market transactions.
