Private Equity

Small Business Acquisitions

Objective

Purchase both minority and majority equity stakes in small and medium sized private businesses in the Southwest United States.

Overview

City Different Acquisitions is a strategy in which we will raise capital on a deal-by-deal basis, and invest directly into privately held small and medium sized businesses to provide growth equity or a personal liquidity event to an owner-operator. We are looking for business owners who will continue to maintain an equity stake and help manage day-to-day operations during a transition period post-transaction. We are different from a traditional private equity fund in that we plan to establish long-term partnerships with owner–operators rather than buying and flipping a business over the course of a designated hold period. We target established, profitable businesses with between $250,000 and $3,000,000 in EBITDA, and that operate in mature industries. We are flexible in how we structure deals though, so if your business doesn’t fit these criteria exactly, our team would still be very excited to have a conversation with you.
