Selling your business is one of the most significant decisions you will make and there are a number of factors to evaluate beyond just purchase price. We take pride in building better businesses and lifelong relationships with company owners and management teams. Whether you are looking to sell 100% of your company or want to retain an ownership stake, our investment team will tailor a transaction to meet your needs. Every investment we make is supported by a conservative capital structure, operating resources and global capabilities to accelerate growth and profitability.

Approximately 90% of our investments have been in entrepreneur and family-owned companies, often representing the first outside equity capital for those businesses. While not a requirement, entrepreneurs typically invest alongside Pfingsten to share in future value appreciation. Whom you choose as a partner not only impacts your legacy, but many other constituents: family members, employees, customers, suppliers and surrounding communities. A mutually successful outcome is our goal. Please read our founder’s articles on selecting the right private equity firm and exit options.

Pfingsten’s experienced operating professionals bring important resources to our companies. We understand that growth requires investments in people, systems, facilities, equipment and product development. Pfingsten also empowers employees through its team-based Continuous Improvement Training Programs and Best Practice Exchange Forums.
