Aslan Capital Saskatchewan Inc. - our model is unique. Full service really means full service.
Our investment criteria leads us to partner with companies where we can add value and capture growth opportunities. While we are not partial to any industries we look for businesses with good people and strong fundamentals and operating processes in place. We like companies with a proven operating history and $500,000 - $10M in EBITDA.
Aslan Capital Saskatchewan was started in September 2018 and was originated from the experiences and relationships developed over the last 30 years of Business Ownership, Business Consulting and raising capital in the exempt market.
Aslan was established to provide a solution to the lack of capital available to Saskatchewan businesses. Aslan seeks to provide these companies with financial options to execute their strategic goals while bringing operational support and adding long-term value to the benefit of all stakeholders. We rely on our business experience, combined with our demanding due diligence and reporting requirements to create an enviable investment situation and unmatched security of our investment.
Typically, a company’s access to capital will change as it grows. Early on, an entrepreneur may use their own money, or involve friends and family. As success and growth happens, the business may become attractive to Angel investors or Venture Capital funds. Typically, these funds take big risks to capitalize on the highest growth and usually end up with high failure rates as a result. We look for trends in operating history and recognize where we can add value. While many of our competitors in the private markets look for the biggest growth opportunities, we look for more predictable and stable companies with untapped growth potential.
We recognize opportunity where others do not and we know how to create value.
Quality vs Quantity – We always maintain a long-term view of the investments that we offer and by virtue of our unique corporate design, we can afford to be patient in making the right decisions. Successful businesses take years to build and carrying that legacy forward requires a long-term disposition.
FOR THE BUSINESS OWNER
Selling a business or passing it along to family is truly a process, not an event. Planning well in advance of a business changing hands will help the transition go as smoothly as possible.
Aslan Capital Saskatchewan has the relationships to offer options at every stage of this process from initial consulting and preparing the business for sale through to investing in the transaction and assisting to manage the operations. These relationships can help to prepare the business for this transition or sale while keeping the right people in place to continue operating the business.
ARE YOU AN ENTREPRENEUR WHO IS WANTING TO RETIRE
Are you a retiring entrepreneur looking for an exit strategy? Do you want to maintain the team that you have built over the years? We can raise the capital to help you and point you in the direction of other services.
We begin with a meeting up front to ensure that our services are a fit for your situation. During this meeting we can discuss the costs and fees associated with raising this capital and outline the next steps.
Do you or your partners want out of the business? Do 1 or more of the existing partners want to stay in the business and carry it forward? We can meet and discuss some options.
Many business owners are looking to get out of a business and struggle with succession planning. You may have trained people for years, who are capable to take over, but may not have the money to buy the business. You may want to take money off the table, but probably still care about what happens after you’re gone. Call us to talk about some of your options.
