Your Legacy 

Our goal is to honor your life’s work and provide you with optimal liquidity. We offer maximum flexibility and numerous options to address common shareholder concerns such as your employees, your post-sale career and reinvestment opportunities. We understand this is not simply about selling your business. You’re sharing your legacy. 

Your staff and customer relationships are among your most valuable assets and our entire acquisition process is centered on maintaining and building upon such elements.

Business Valuation

Novatech considers many factors to determine the overall value of a business.

There are many variables that go into assessing the value of a business to our portfolio. These may include geographical location, market position, vendor and customer relationships, management teams, reputation and growth potential. In addition to business and market analysis, our team performs a detailed financial analysis, valuations and due diligence prior to every transaction.

Our Team

Novatech has joined forces with Trivest Partners, a private equity firm providing succession planning. Novatech has the technical acumen and Trivest has the resources to build a nationwide presence. We invite you to join us on this exciting journey. We have a full-time team devoted to acquisitions. This team is responsible for identifying and examining potential acquisition candidates, performing detailed analysis, valuation, due diligence and all actions necessary to commence an acquisition.

Our Strategy

Transaction Structure

Our unique “Just Say No!” structure removes many of the pain points of a typical acquisition transaction.

Just Say No to:

  • Required Shareholder "Rollover" Expenditure
  • Complex Stock Structure with Preferential Treatment To Other Equity Owners
  • Excessive Debt Leverage
  • Financing Contingencies
  • "Re-Trading" To A Lower Valuation Without Supporting Data

Geographic Growth

We intend to enter new geographic markets by acquiring “key” companies.
We will expand those key companies’ markets through the acquisition of satellite companies, which are typically in close geographic proximity to key companies. Our key companies may choose to continue to operate under their pre-acquisition names and with their pre-acquisition management teams, thus preserving existing customer relationships. Satellite companies are integrated into our key companies by transferring some of the administrative functions from the satellite to the key company, or to Novatech as a whole.

Key Company Acquisitions

If your business is in a market where we already have a presence, or your business has some unique characteristics, call us to discuss. We are always happy to explore possibilities for a strategic combination. We look for key company acquisition candidates that (1) are led by an experienced management team who are committed to managing the company after we acquire it, (2) have a strong regional market presence and reputation for service and (3) can grow internally and through the acquisition of satellite companies.

Satellite Company Acquisitions

The main component of our growth strategy is to acquire satellite companies in, or near, our key companies’ markets. Key company management frequently identifies appropriate satellite acquisition candidates. In evaluating potential satellite acquisitions, we consider, among other factors, the potential satellite’s proximity to a key company, its customer base, its service contracts and its equipment in the field.

Integration

Our experienced management team provides direct support and assistance after the acquisition transaction. We have a dedicated acquisition project lead who is available to provide support in the immediate days, weeks and months of a sale, which we understand can be a disorienting time for your employees and customers. We provide efficiencies to our operating companies in the form of benefit programs and insurance. Our management team is available to provide assistance in a variety of disciplines, including human resources, benefits, insurance, service and sales productivity, accounting and information systems support.
