Strategy

Equity ownership of well managed small firms in durable industries with $5m to $50m of revenue and $500K-$5M in EBITDA offers favorable returns when diversified over a long-term liquidity horizon. Three strategic pillars are of unique focus, (1) the quality and commitment of the manager, (2) the resilience of the company and (3) the entry point valuation. Below is the general investment process the Club facilitates.

OPPORTUNITY SOURCING

Through strategic partnerships, professional connections, and member contributions, the Club receives access to a diverse set of investment opportunities across the small firm private equity space.

RELATIONSHIP BUILDING

EtA Club maintains relationships with entrepreneurs seeking financing for acquisition opportunities. We get to know entrepreneurs throughout their acquisition search process, enabling us to gauge their ability to manage and lead small firms.

SCREENING & DUE DILIGENCE

EtA Club management reviews deal flow on a weekly basis. Investment opportunities and buyers are reviewed on a deal-by-deal basis. We employ the help of a network of advisers to gain industry-specific insight, helping ensure the quality of deals made available to Club members.

INVESTMENT

Members receive access to all deals made available through the Club platform. Members have the opportunity to engage with buyers and negotiate terms at their discretion. Minimum investment amounts vary on a deal-by-deal basis.

ONGOING COMPANY SUPPORT

Some members will have the opportunity to assume board positions in an acquired business (depending on investment size, fit, and acquirer needs), while others will invest more passively. Post-acquisition and throughout a firm’s operating phase, company management will have access to EtA Club's resources and network.
