As the largest demographic of the United States’ population, Baby Boomers control approximately 70% of the America’s total wealth. The oldest members of this population are on the cusp of retirement, and as they leave the workforce to enter the golden years, industry experts expect the transition to have a significant economic impact. For Boomers that own small businesses, in particular, retirement means selling their company to the next generation of owners.
Ohio-based LD Holdings’ goal is to bridge the gap in the business world regarding the sale and transfer of these businesses from the Boomers to the buyers. The company’s research shows that there more than 25 million small businesses in the United States, collectively valued at more than $17 trillion, that will be sold in the next 15-20 years.
To capitalize on this transfer of assets, LD Holdings is building a portfolio of venture capital returns without the venture capital risk by acquiring profitable, Boomer-owned companies that meet a set of specific criteria: $2 million – $20 million in revenues, quality management and personnel, and brand equity.
The company operates two divisions with varying responsibilities: the Business Services Division includes the buyers, managers and investors of the prospective companies; and the Business Operating Division will be responsible for managing the portfolio of acquired companies.
Within five years, LD Holdings aims to accumulate at least 50 small companies and integrate them into cohesive business units when possible. Using a conservative $10 million of revenues as an average, LD Holdings anticipates that this strategy will result in consolidated total revenues of $500 million by 2018. The company is seeking Angel Investors to provide the capital while the search for these business acquisitions is being conducted.
As LD Holdings advances its acquisition and portfolio plans, it points to similar and successful growth and acquisitions strategies used by well-known public companies like Berkshire Hathaway and other large cap institutions. Mimicking these strategies, LD Holdings’ management team remains focused and dedicated to the company’s scalable business plan and corporate vision.
