American Working Capital ("AWC") is a merchant banking and financial advisory firm dedicated to partnering with privately-held middle market companies addressing ownership transition and growth capital needs.
There is a critical juncture in the development of every successful privately held business when the liquidity needs, risk profile or capital resources of its shareholders do not align with the opportunities and needs of the business. These transitions are significant steps in a company’s life cycle and can have profound impacts on ownership interests and the future growth and development of the underlying business. AWC is focused exclusively on providing expert advisory services and capital to address such ownership transition and growth capital needs. AWC partners are highly skilled in executing these strategic transactions and have extensive operational, advisory and capital markets backgrounds, drawing upon over a 150 years of collective middle market experience. For businesses with broader-based management/employee ownership or employee stock ownership plans (“ESOPs”), we have been at the forefront of some the most innovative and successful management/employee-led buy-out and recapitalization transactions to date. With our own capital and the capital of a select group of institutional investors, the AWC team has ready access to a large pool of equity and debt capital to meet your unique funding needs.
