Expansion Transactions

Expansion is an increase in the size of a private company’s business as a result of a transformative transaction. There are a variety of reasons private companies choose to expand through a transaction as opposed to an organic growth. Acquisition growth happens much faster, virtually overnight in some cases, whereas organic growth takes time as its sales grow. A private-held company may want to eliminate a competitor, enter a new geographic market, introduce a new product line, or bring on the talent and management team that results from an expansion transaction.
