What we do

Our expert services include advising on purchase and sale of private businesses through both asset and stock transactions, securing junior and risk capital, refinancing, restructuring, financial consulting, and valuation opinions. While transactions represent a significant portion of our engagements, many of our clients benefit from having an ongoing financial advisor to assist in managing certain disciplines of their businesses through longer term consulting services.
C Squared also has significant experience in the evaluation, planning, and execution of “asset light”, refranchising, and repositioning strategies for successful and evolving franchisors. Our principals have managed the sale of over 2,000 units in refranchising and “asset light” transactions.
