For Business Owners

What’s the primary reason that most lower middle market companies fail, according to the small business administration? It’s not lack of sales. Nor is it poor management. Nor is it the ubiquitous ‘bad economy.’ Although those reasons certainly made the list. Give up?

The primary reason why most companies in the lower middle market – companies with at least $20 million up to about $150 million in revenue – fail is due to improper capitalization or under capitalization. Although fast growing, many lower middle market companies lack the ability and capital to fund their growth.

Many companies do have access to capital, but usually it’s in the form of bank debt. Many owners choose to grow their companies to very successful levels, however, fail to take advantage of recapitalization opportunities. In other words, owners need to shore up their capital base with equity.

Unfortunately, if you’re an owner of a lower middle market company, your access to equity capital has been limited, and therefore it seems your only choice is to over-leverage your company. Forest Hills Capital provides the access to equity capital so companies have the proper fuel to fund their growth.
