I'm starting to see an uptick in M&A activity in the middle market, but overall it's going to be a down year.

About Me (Company description, Biography, Services I provide):
Forest Hills Capital Management (FHCM) invests capital in companies in the lower middle market. We are private equity investors providing the lower middle market company the capital it needs to achieve its next level of growth or to successfully execute a turnaround.

FHCM acts as a fund-like sponsor where its investors include entrepreneurs, hedge fund and private equity managers, and other accredited investors investing their individual capital into transactions.

We work closely with management to provide them the time, talent and resources the company needs to execute on its mission and vision.

We are active investors providing advice, consulting and access to our network. We do not operate the company on a day-to-day basis; therefore, we require the appropriate reporting and control structures, as well as strong management.
Network with Me (Types of transactions I seek, Professionals I like to be referred):
Forest Hills Capital Management (FHCM) invests equity capital with the following criteria:

- Company has sales of at least $10 million annually
- Company is profitable or produces positive cash flow
- Turnaround or distressed situations expecting to produce positive cash flow
- Although we invest in a wide variety of industries, we lean towards business
services, publishing, branding and franchising
- Our minimum investment is $2 million in equity

FHCM acts as a fund-like sponsor and also seeks to work with investors who desire higher returns and do not have the time and resources to source and analyze private capital investments.

Investing in Tomorrow's Growth

Funding the Lower Middle Market

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 $10 million up to about $100 million in revenues -- fail is due to improper capitalization or undercapitalization. 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, lower middle market companies’ access to equity capital has been limited, and therefore it seems their only choice is to over leverage their companies. FHCM provides the access to equity capital so companies have the proper fuel to fund their growth.

Going Hostile

by Charles P. Wallace Nov 11 2009 Hostile deals are traditionally viewed as risky and difficult to pull off, but some acquirers, such as Kraft, are giving it a shot as the odds shift. While British candy producer Cadbury rejected a hostile $17 billion takeover offer from America’s Kraft this week, it does not have history on its side. In recent years, changes in laws and an absence of buyers in today’s market have… Continue

by Kent Bernhard, Jr. Sep 01 2009 The Disney deal with Marvel and the Baker Hughes takeout of B.J. Services raise hopes for better times in M&A. Merger Mondays may be back. After an abysmal summer—an abysmal year really—Monday brought hope for a more active mergers-and-acquisitions market in the near future, with two high-profile multibillion-dollar buyouts ranging from the glamorous world of entertainment to the… Continue

Roger's Corner - Sept. 26, 2008: It's A Wonderful Life ... Not!

Posted on September 26, 2008 at 6:27pm 0 Comments

In the 1946 classic movie, It's a Wonderful Life, Lionel Barrymore plays businessman archetype Henry F. Potter. A key scene in the movie demonstrates Potter's acumen of acquiring a small town's bank during the infamous bank panics of 1929. Potter to the rescue! Only George Bailey (played by Jimmy Stewart) and his family's Bailey Building & Loan can survive the bank crisis.

The analogy is: If the middle-market represents all the small… Continue
