Strategic Advisory

Our clients deserve informed, actionable advice from bankers who can pinpoint value opportunities and deliver successful results. Our team not only has decades of transaction and investment experience, but in-the-trenches operating experience as well. We understand your business because we have worked in a business like yours. And that’s our springboard to any advisory assignment; understanding first, advice second….the cornerstone of delivering exceptional results


We know the space cold. GLC provides comprehensive M&A services both on the buy and sell side of transactions, specializing in exclusive sale, acquisition and divestiture assignments. The landscape is complicated. It calls for experienced, overly informed pros with reach deep into the investor/lender community as well as current insight into corporate buyers. GLC has been doing this for a long time. We know the space cold. How does that translate for our clients? Exceptional results that exceed expectations. Full stop.

Acquisition Finance

We advise on balance sheet issues and on sources of capital. We can help buyers and sellers locate financing if needed to get transactions done. Our friends in the private equity community may be looking for debt capital to make a competitive offer- we know where to turn as we are regularly talking to providers of senior and mezzanine debt.

Growth Capital as a Strategic Alternative

Once we understand the “what’s” and the “why’s”, the “how” is relatively easy. It always surprises us how many advisors don’t ask questions. What might initially look like a sale assignment may really be a growth equity financing, and vice versa. Questions up front may help clarify the objective. What’s instigating the assignment? What are you trying to achieve? Are the issues internal or external? Is the challenge financial, operational, strategic or some combination of all three? How can we fast-track growth opportunities? What are the specific value opportunities? Sometimes a multi-track process is needed to see whether a sale or financing best meets the objective. With our financial reach and industry expertise, once we understand the “what’s” and the “why’s”, the “how” is relatively easy.
