Aronson Capital Partners (ACP) was founded in 1999 to serve the M&A and financial advisory needs of middle market companies in the highly fragmented government contracting industry. Since inception, our team of seasoned professionals has served as trusted advisors to senior management teams and boards of directors providing strategic and tactical advice. Our sole industry focus enables us to understand and communicate the strategic value of our clients to the appropriate set of buyers or lenders. While ACP's principal focus is Mergers & Acquisitions, we also support clients with Corporate Finance and Financial Advisory services.
Aronson Capital Partners is well-known within the defense and government technology industries for its ability to successfully manage sell-side and buy-side engagements for middle-market companies. We also assist public companies in the divestiture of corporate assets or operating divisions. Each engagement we accept is led by a seasoned, senior-level professional who is highly skilled in executing competitive auctions and preemptive sales, and is hands-on in the negotiating and structuring of transactions. We believe this high level of senior involvement sets us apart from our competition. In addition, our direct access to the key decision makers at strategic buyers and private equity groups, plus our extensive industry knowledge and experience, allows us to both convey a company's competitive positioning and proactively address potential issues that may arise during the M&A process.
Aronson Capital Partners provides clients with a structured approach to raising debt and equity to support growth initiatives. We know the industry, along with the investors and lenders most suitable for our clients. We begin each assignment by developing a thorough understanding of our clients' business and strategic objectives, and our initial due diligence provides us with an objective assessment of the business as well as the strategic options that are available. We have successfully assisted our clients in meeting their shareholder objectives through a variety of corporate finance transactions, including preferred equity, senior debt, subordinate debt, mezzanine debt, minority equity investments, and/or private equity investments.
Aronson Capital Partners provides strategic assessments and valuations to aid shareholders in their consideration of strategic options. When considering the sale or recapitalization of a business, a thorough understanding of the likely outcome is critical. Our objective analysis serves as the basis for evaluating these options. As a result of our industry focus, our analysis is based on current market conditions and an in-depth understanding of our client's business. Our unique understanding of the government contracting environment allows us to provide recommendations to improve margins and cash flows based upon industry best practices. Our financial advisory and valuation services range from independent corporate valuations and fairness opinions to strategic alternative assessments and transaction advisory services.
