  • We take the time to understand the issues facing management teams going through the investment process and prudently structure transactions to accommodate the capital needs and growth opportunities of each business.
  • A CHP Targeted Search is a highly tailored and collaborative process designed and executed to achieve success. From the research phase to our target outreach, and ultimately through the development, negotiation & closing of transactions, we work as an extension of your team.

THE CHP Advantage

Our strong track record of 20 years gives you the competitive advantage.

CHP’s team aligns with our interests and acts as an extension of our firm in every capacity. Consistently exceeding our expectations, I cannot think of another firm we would rather work with for targeted searches.

CHP’s Targeted Search for Driven Brands involved the tenacious pursuit of well over 150 discrete targets in a highly fragmented market, and resulted in a significant number of franchise additions.  We were very pleased with CHP’s work.

Our interests are aligned. We position ourselves as an extension of your investment team and focus not on retainers but on our mutual success through closing transactions and co-investing.

Targeted Search

Our proprietary Go Deep™ methodology allows us to conduct focused and highly effective searches.

Our Targeted Search Program combines sophisticated database management tools and a thorough understanding of your requirements to conduct focused and highly effective global searches. Utilizing our extensive research resources including 15 years of proprietary data, as well as our collective relationships and significant transaction experience, we screen targets based on an interactive dialogue that centers on your strategic acquisition needs. CHP designates a primary point of contact for each platform and add-on search, and that principal follows an industry leading process involving Target definition, rigorous research, and discrete Target contact following the Client’s stated parameters for ideal acquisition candidates. We identify and engage with exclusive targets that are outside the standard auction process.

  • Our targeted searches are 100% executed by our team of investment banking professionals who bring extensive market knowledge and transaction experience developed at bulge bracket firms and over hundreds of transactions.

Executive Sponsorship

Access experienced operating executives that know how to lead enterprises.

Private Equity firms have created a reservoir of over $500 billion in the last few years to recast the corporate landscape. The need is only more critical now for experienced operating executives to lead these new enterprises. Our Executive Sponsorship Program makes it possible for seasoned operating executives to participate in the development of private equity transactions and ultimately to run the acquired companies.

Partnering closely with management is central to our investment philosophy. We believe that the most successful opportunities are created by management teams that have increased operating autonomy and meaningful equity ownership in their companies.

For those executives who have held top operating positions and have the desire to take the CEO helm in a new business, the Executive Sponsorship Program is an opportunity for a substantive and confidential conversation with recognized leaders in closing successful middle market transactions.
