A sample of recent projects that we have worked on with private equity firms and portfolio companies follows:
- Private equity acquisition of a $22M heavy machinery parts distributor. AGH conducted significant financial due diligence that resulted in an adjustment in the final purchase price. Due diligence included accounting, federal tax, state tax matters and payroll tax issues. We also reviewed the final working capital adjustment, assisted in the purchase price allocation process, conducted a beginning balance sheet audit and will serve as primary audit and tax advisors on a prospective basis.
- Private equity acquisition of an $18M agribusiness manufacturer. AGH provided assistance with the net working capital calculation and purchase price allocation and will serve as primary audit and tax advisors on a prospective basis.
- Brokered sales of a $26M aerospace supply chain manufacturer to a private equity firm and a $100M heavy construction contractor to a private equity firm. In both transactions, AGH assisted in the negotiation of the purchase price, suggested tax alternatives resulting in tax savings to the seller and provided ongoing support throughout the transactions.
- Currently providing audit and tax services to several other portfolio companies that are private equity-owned, including companies in the aerospace supply chain manufacturing, other non-aerospace manufacturing, an international food distributor and an international specialty retailer.
