Capital Raising

 All businesses need capital. 

  • Capital to either start a new business or finance the growth and prosperity of an existing one. Capital can be in many different forms, from equity investment, commercial debt or a mixture of the two.
    Regardless of the capital requirements, we research the various options and secure the best financing for our acquisitions.

Selling The Business/Exit Strategy

  • The only reason to go into business is to eventually sell it. The time, energy, skill and capital invested into our businesses need to generate a financial return via an exit. 
  • Most of our exits are via a sale, either to a competitor, a new market entrant, a financial buyer or an individual or individuals, either inside the business already or external. 
  • We place the best management teams within our businesses so that they are highly attractive to buyers and/or investors, before marketing the business for sale in a controlled, professional process. We create all the deal marketing documents, control the flow of business information, arrange meetings and solicit offers before realizing the best options.

Royse Law

 

  • Whether we are acquiring or selling a company,  Royse Law team is here to help with our transactions. Throughout the years, they have negotiated countless deals ranging from modest transactions to multimillion dollar acquisitions.


Pre-Acquisition Planning


  • The acquisition process begins long before the term sheet stage. Royse Law seeks to address legal and tax matters before they become due diligence issues that may result in distractions or revaluations. They routinely anticipate and address a potential target’s problems prior to engaging with us.


Integrated Shareholder-Corporate Solution


  • Unlike many law firms, Royse Law considers the interests of the ultimate owners during an acquisition. They work hard to identify the most tax efficient structures and strategies for every transaction.  Royse Law also serves as independent counsel to large shareholders and, when appropriate, act as counsel to our organization.


Special Counsel


  • Due to their tax expertise, they are regularly asked to assist us with specific tax issues that may arise during large or complex transactions. They often advise on general tax structuring and consult on the availability of net operating losses to G1C Group, issues specific to us, the application (and exemption from) the golden parachute rules, and Code Section 409A — deferred compensation taxes. As special tax counsel, Royse Law works closely with our company’s corporate attorneys and accountants.


Post Acquisition Matters


  • Their representation does not end once the transaction closes. They provide continuing support in the event of indemnification claims or other post-closing matters. Royse Law experience in settling merger-related disputes provides  valuable insight into potential problem areas while negotiating a deal. This experience is similarly valuable in mediating events that might not have been anticipated during merger negotiations.


Litigation


  • Disputes happen. When they do, Royse Law can help us in a wide-range of cases. Their experienced team regularly represents clients before federal courts, state courts, and other administrative agencies.
