Should we sell our business to a Private Equity Fund?

Franchisees typically do not have many opportunities to sell their individual businesses to private equity groups. Private equity groups generally seek larger investments with substantial net income, enabling them to apply a reasonable valuation multiple and determine an appropriate price. While large multi-unit franchises may attract the interest of private equity, these groups are more commonly involved in purchasing the franchisor’s interest—the company that owns the brand.

Private equity introduces a unique element into the franchise relationship, with potential positive or negative impacts. The outcome depends on the true intentions of the private equity group, which primarily operates in the financial domain rather than the specific industry it invests in. Decisions made by private equity may prioritize financial returns over the best interests of franchisees or the business concept. This conflict can introduce uncertainty, complexity, and risks into the franchisor-franchisee relationship.

What type of business law services do you provide?

Both inside and outside the franchise practice, our law firm concentrates on numerous contracts and transactional documents for the benefit of our franchisee clients and others not involved in the franchise space. In the franchise arena, we handle various documents, including franchise disclosure documents (FDD), franchise agreements, purchase and sale contracts, operating agreements, licensing agreements, and exclusive distributorship agreements. Additionally, we are experienced in the purchase and sale of auto dealerships, marina dealerships, heavy equipment dealerships, and other commercial transactions. With expertise in finance, accounting, and economics, we seamlessly navigate complex transactions such as buying and selling hotels, real estate, and engaging in intricate lease agreements. From preparing operating agreements for partnerships to undertaking partnership agreements, we cover the entire spectrum. Our firm’s love for business transactions, coupled with our proficiency in litigation, ensures a comprehensive and enduring relationship with our clients.
