Avantcé targets companies with up to $300m of revenues, but many of our transactions involve businesses with sales between $1 million and $300 million.

Avantcé approach

Avantcé has created proprietary methodologies over the last 20 years in the software/technology space. These methodologies encompass deal pre-acquisition analysis, deal structure, deal price multiple modeling, negotiations with seller, post-acquisition analysis, and advisement on operating metrics.  Avantcé partners for acquisition, investment and ongoing operation of software technology companies. Avantcé engages with the partner and exchanges proprietary methodologies. Avantcé believes that the combination of multiple transaction experience of the principals and the insights available from the partners greatly expand the wealth of knowledge, the perspectives on relative value, and the pool of potential investment ideas available to partners. 

Financial and Operational Methodologies

The principals of Avantcé have hundredes of combined years in finance and in the software/technology space.  With this expertise the principals have developed a suite of financial and operating methodologies that the partners utilize to achieve ongoing financial success with acquired companies.  These methodologies have been implemented in numerous investments and have a track record of proven success.  Two primary caveats drive the operations of partnered companies: first being the creation of operational efficiencies that consistently lead to strong free cash flows, second being the customer intimacy leading to maintaining high retention and recurring revenue streams regardless of the economic cycle.
