Benefits to PE Clients

GPG’s Financial Sponsor Advisory practice is focused on developing and institutionalizing relationships with leading middle market private equity firms around the United States. In many cases we will, and have, co-invested with our PE clients.

As an extension of our financial sponsor coverage, our Corporate Originations Group endeavors to act as an outsourced business development team for sponsors through a highly targeted, high-touch coverage effort.  COG’s services cover the complete deal origination spectrum:

  • acquiring a thorough understanding of your firm, your investment criteria and your portfolio companies;
  • developing an outreach and approach strategy with your team;
  • performing market research and target identification;
  • executing outreach and approach initiatives;
  • developing relationships with business owners and fostering and managing those relationships;
  • performing preliminary due diligence;
  • creating/presenting introductory summary analyses (“Target Tear Sheets”); and
  • initiating executive introductions.

We offer a very clear and distinct value proposition to our private equity clients, centered on these core attributes:

  • consistent, high-quality deal flow, actionable idea generation and active executive introductions for new platform investments and portfolio company add-ons;
  • unwavering dedication of GPG resources to effectively deliver a systematic, disciplined approach to efficiently executing deal sourcing objectives;
  • strategic focus on portfolio company value creation throughout the investment period and value maximization upon exit;
  • focused commitment to provide the highest quality proprietary deal flow to each of our clients; and
  • Unequivocal devotion to the middle and lower-middle market and the engineering and industrial products and services industries
