Cork Capital was formed to acquire a founder-owned business.
Unlike most buyers, we’re a good fit with an owner who wants to i) step back from day-to-day operations, ii) generate wealth and liquidity for their family, and iii) have comfort that their employees’ jobs and the legacy of their business will live on after their retirement.
Cork Capital is well suited to meet all three of those goals – especially the third one. After the acquisition, our CEO will transition into the business and dedicate 100% of his time to running the day-to-day operations, which will bind his fate to that of the business. What we offer, therefore, is a desirable alternative to selling the company to its competitor or a private equity firm.
