Succession/Estate Planning Transactions

Granite Partners has a successful record of helping entrepreneurs and owner-managers unlock the value that they have built up in their businesses over the years. Granite’s transaction structures are creative and unique in the industry. They afford business owners with an opportunity to sell their business yet still own a meaningful minority interest in their companies. This allows business owners to liquefy a substantial portion of the business’s inherent value and “take their chips off the table.” Moreover, since Granite is not an operator, the entrepreneur may continue to run the business or eventually help groom a successor.

Since Granite Partners’ goal is to build the businesses in which it invests, the remaining minority interest provides an opportunity for a second significant capital gain.
