LD Holdings is an Ohio-based financial and management holding company with a mature and experienced management team. Led by John R. Ayling, LD Holdings’ founder, chief executive officer and largest shareholder, the company is dedicated to a scalable business plan within a largely untapped market.
A graduate of the University of Toledo, Mr. Ayling served as a Captain in the US Army from 1966 to 1968. From 1969 on, he gained experience and expertise from launching various start-up operations; financing numerous business enterprises; serving as a money manager to institutions and individuals; and providing support and development for all phases of management, including business integration and financial controls. His four decades of business knowledge have prepared him to lead a company like LD Holdings, which is in the business of acquiring profitable baby boomer businesses with $2 to $20 million in revenues.
Over 25 million small businesses in the US are worth more than $17 trillion and will be sold during the next 15 to 20 years, creating multiple wealth-generation opportunities. LD Holdings wants to become a recognized buyer of such boomer businesses and the key to its business model is fairly simple. It will look to acquire established, profitable companies with existing management and personnel, brand equity, customers, and cash flow at economical prices and attempt to produce venture capital type returns without the venture capital risks of start-up companies.
The company’s five-year plan is to accumulate at least fifty of these small companies and combine them into unified business units, when and where possible. LD Holdings will aggressively use the Internet and foremost investor groups to find angel investors to provide the acquisition capital while searching for and evaluating the businesses to be acquired. Ideally, these angel investors will be seeking a higher than normal rate of return and willing to hold their positions for at least a year to maximize results and minimize individual tax costs.
By continuously focusing on transparency and liquidity, LD Holdings’ management will practice low-cost operations while remaining shareholder and market conscious and totally committed to the company’s growth.
