EBITDA Pipeline – Surveying EBITDA Business Owners


Investor Network by JD (A raw blog with facts and no time to cross Ts!)

WHAT IS HOT

We are conducting a survey with business owners of EBITDA companies. Our goal is to produce a Webinar series and other educational resources to address their major concerns. From growth to exit as well as their personal life.  Contact JD via text at +1 858-869-9483 or JD@RedHookCapital.co anytime.

 

COOL IMAGES

Always cool to see exit image even if it is based on VC back exits!

NETWORKING THIS WEEK

We are focusing on almost all EBITDA companies because we provide referrals to other investors.  Today we cove some of our focused areas in specialty manufacturing and industrial technology:

  • Test & measurement
  • Flow & process control
  • Instrumentation & sensors
  • Connectivity
  • Filtration (liquids)
  • Other high value-added niche manufacturing segments Consumer Products and Services

Again, the key is a company that needs growth capital or possible consolidation play based on few high margin products for the cornerstone of the consolidation company.  I call it the cake and frosting play (i.e. high margins = frosting).

Referrals are always welcome for growth capital, consolidation, or strategy session for few hours or few days!  Text JD Morris at +1 858-869-9483

DEAL PIPELINE

Here is a list of deals based on sales, closings, IPOs, and more!  Please always check with the website of the company or investor as this information is from the Associated Press, Bloomberg, CB Insights, Forbes, Reuters, Wall Street Journal, or other 3rd party sources.  These deals are picked because one of our advisors is an expert in the space.  Here is the Pipeline:

Consolidation case study plus PEG Pipeline


1.0) CONSOLIDATION IN TECH TRAVEL

“Travel tech startups raised $982M across 21 deals so far in Q3’16 — a 70% decrease in deals but a 68% increase in funding over Q2’16” – CB Insight

Although not every company made the list, there are some amazing people in the travel industry that changed the field and its future.  If you want a 2 day or 2 hour strategy session, I am currently interviewing several industry leaders and tech gurus that would be happy to provide short of 2 day strategy session.

THE STORY OF TWO DEALS

AirBnB vs. VRBO.com!  VRBO was much like the low tech Craiglist.  However, one is story of great exit and the other of Unicorn in the making!

HomeAway announced in November 2006 its $160 million in financing to fund global expansion initiatives, including the acquisition of VRBO.com (Vacation Rentals by Owner). On November 11, 2008, HomeAway announced it had completed an additional $250 million equity capital raise. The investment was led by Technology Crossover Ventures (TCV) and with existing investors Austin Ventures, Institutional Venture Partners (IVP) and Redpoint Ventures.  In 2010 the Wall Street Journal named HomeAway one of the top 10 venture funded companies.

Today AirBnb has the honor raising $4.2B making and Expedia acquired HomeAway in Dec. 2015 for $3.9 Billion!  Will the Unicorn AirBnB find an exit or is the founder of VRBO.com the smart business owner.

FYI: My team loves helping with a consolidation play from MBO to LBO to just an exit!

SAMPLE RAW DATA FOR STRATEGY SESSION:

1 AirBnB $4.2B
2 LY.com $1.2B
3 TuJia $464M
4 Decolar $342M
5 Ibibo Group $273M
6 Quintess $247M
7 Oyo Rooms $26M
8 Skyscanner $197M
9 Huoli $144M
