As a financial advisory firm, American Working Capital (“AWC”) is focused exclusively on providing expert advisory services to address ownership transition and growth capital needs in privately-held middle market companies.  We provide our clients with experience-based solutions, and unbiased advice. Over more than 25 years, working with entrepreneurs, families, management teams and ESOP/employee ownership interests, AWC partners have advised some of America’s finest privately-held companies.  As both a financial advisory firm and a merchant bank, AWC provides advisory services and investment capital to privately-held companies with business values typically between $50 million and $500 million.  We believe our unique position as both an advisor and investor provides several important advantages, including our focus on taking an analytical, "owner-oriented" approach to evaluating shareholder and strategic alternatives for our clients/partners with respect to transactions involving corporate sales, acquisitions and recapitalizations.
