Private Equity / Portfolio Companies

Delivering sizable returns across the transaction cycle – even with investment values harder to find, ownership cycles extending, and exit valuations lacking predictability.

At Catalyft, we are obsessed with ensuring operational value for every one of our Private Equity partners’ transactions.  Whether it’s acquiring a firm with latent value, building portfolio capabilities, or accelerating a growth trajectory, every move must enhance future cash flows.

Yes, we provide experienced, objective operational perspective on pending mergers & acquisitions.  We also work alongside portfolio firm management teams to implement integration & growth strategies, embed functional performance enhancements, and optimize working capital across the order-to-cash landscape. Drawing upon decades of implementation experience across industries and functional areas, our experts are able to quickly analyze opportunities within your timeline, determine the right value-creation potential, and ensure you realize those gains after the deal settles through our operational build-up and optimization implementations.

While “easy-to-work-with” may not show up on any portfolio key performance indicator dashboard or internal rate of return summary table, this is a reputation we aspire to earn every day with our Private Equity partners.  This entails embracing a heightened sense of urgency, letting your best interest be our guide, sharing promising ideas, accentuating strengths, allowing data to drive decisions, cultivating long-term relationships, and being known for treating everyone with decorum and respect. We know “easy-to-work-with” is important to you – we couldn’t agree more.

Our curated team works closely with you, the investors, and your portfolio management teams to provide independent analysis and optimization services across your investment lifecycle – quantifying, qualifying, and delivering financial results in the following investment stages:

  • Pre-merger & acquisition operational due diligence
  • Deal team participation
