For Business Owners
Some specific advantages of working with BayView Capital include:
We understand the emotional process involved in evaluating a sale or recapitalization of your company. We appreciate the financial and personal investment required over many years to build a successful company. To that end, business owners will have the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with the BayView team and work collectively to create a detailed operating plan for the future of the company. BayView welcomes instances in which sellers wish to retain equity in the business and participate in the upside. We seek to create value by helping to drive growth, increase profitability and improve cash generation rather than through financial engineering.
Our values are central to who we are both professionally and personally. We value integrity, teamwork, execution, accountability, passion & enthusiasm, respect & appreciation and having fun. We hold ourselves to the highest standard in everything we do from building best-in-class businesses to having a positive impact on all stakeholders: shareholders, employees, customers, vendors and the community.
We are a solution provider. We pride ourselves on working with sellers to fully understand their issues and objectives during the sale process. We believe we are uniquely flexible, creative and willing to customize our investment to accommodate the objectives of the seller in a way that can benefit all parties in the long-term, including transaction structures in which sellers partner with BayView post acquisition and participate in the upside. Furthermore, we are determined to do whatever it takes to ensure a successful transition from inserting ourselves into the business as management (e.g., if the seller is an owner-operator interested in moving away from a management role) to supporting the existing management team as needed.
We are long-term investors. We value business continuity, stable relations (employee, customer, vendor, financing, etc.) and positive community standing. Above all, we appreciate the existing workforce and believe that motivating the employee base and investing in long-term employee development can be a key aspect of business growth. We do not have a prefabricated investment horizon; therefore, our primary focus is to build a best-in-class, sustainable and growing enterprise that will be part of the BayView family for the long-term.
