Columbus, Ohio-based LD Holdings is focused on the strong acquisition opportunities posed by the upcoming wave of baby boomer owners looking to sell off their businesses. The company looks to acquire profitable baby boomer-owned companies that meet a set of tailored criteria. Acquisition prospects ideally will have $2-$20 million in revenues, quality management teams and personnel, brand equity, and potential for building up a portfolio that generates strong venture capital returns with minimal venture capital risk.
It’s hardly a secret as to why LD Holdings is focused on this space. Currently there are 78 million people who are part of the baby boomer generation, or individuals who were born between 1946 and 1964. Baby boomers account for a sizable portion of small business ownership within the United States. It’s estimated that over 25 million small businesses in the United States worth more than $17 trillion will be sold within the next 15-20 years. Tighter banking regulations and lack of buyer interest in companies that fit LD Holdings’ target mold make this a less-crowded market with strong opportunities for LD Holdings to grow into a recognizer buyer of boomer businesses.
LD Holdings’ plan calls for accumulating at least 50 of these companies and consolidating them into more cohesive business units whenever possible. In a headline from earlier this year, LD Holdings disclosed it had received a commitment from a qualified institution for a credit line of up to $10 million, which enables it to pursue its initial round of business acquisitions. Via its recently-formed joint venture with Internet Marketing Consortium, LD Holdings will also be increasing its outreach to angel investors for acquisition capital while tapping into its extensive database of company, entrepreneur, and institutional and non-institutional investor prospects for a solid network of investment partners, acquisition targets, and savvy management talent.
