We help companies raise significant amounts of equity capital. We believe that we help them do it at valuations higher than they are likely to achieve on their own and under terms less onerous than they would otherwise receive.
The private equity industry has grown and institutionalized dramatically in the past twenty years. As a result, middle market companies often have access to more deep-pocketed investor classes. Companies that talk to one or two investors in the process of raising capital often set themselves up to dramatically underachieve on valuation, terms, and finding the highest quality institutional investor. Competition matters. Hiring a great advisor to run an investment banking process and turn over every stone can turn the hunted into the hunter.
Headwaters helps its clients find investors who want to find them – folks who appreciate their industry, like their management style, and understand where the combination of their checkbook and your smarts can take your company.
We are an unapologetic advocate for your company. We proceed without conflict. While we greatly respect the institutional investor and large corporate community, it is our calling to serve only one master – you.
