Recapitalize Your Business

For some business owners, it may be useful to continue to manage your business, but to take out some of your equity by selling part of your company to private investors.

This exit strategy is appropriate for a business owner who wants to continue to run the business, but would like to take out some of the value of the business before they sell the entire business. Typically this is accomplished by working with a private equity fund, who purchases a controlling interest in the company.  Most private equity funds who participate in this type of recapitalization transaction want the owner to stay on and run the business.
