LD Holdings (LDHL) focuses its endeavors on acquisitions presented by Baby Boomer business owners that are interested in selling their companies as they head into retirement. The company is actively seeking to acquire profitable companies that meet criteria fitting its business model. Acquisition prospect characteristics are $2 million-$20 million in revenues, experienced management, personnel, measurable brand equity, and potential for building up a portfolio that generates venture capital returns with low venture capital risk.
There is a solid foundation to LD Holdings’ strategy to focus on this market. Baby Boomer demographics reveal that there are approximately 78 million people born between 1946 and 1964, many of whom are business owners. Estimates suggest that 25 million small businesses in the United States have a total worth exceeding $17 trillion and that they will be on the market and sold by year 2034. Tighter banking regulations and low buyer interest in companies fitting LD Holdings’ acquisition criteria make this an uncluttered market, thus providing opportunities for LD Holdings to grow.
The company is backed by experienced management familiar with the Baby Boomer generation as well as the small business buy/sell markets.
John R. Ayling, LD Holding’s chairman of the board, is also the company’s largest shareholder and co-founder. Since 1989, he has served as president of Continental Capital Management, Inc., a money management firm located in Sylvania, Ohio. From 1983 to 1988, he served as vice president at Oberweis Securities following a 13-year career managing accounts for individuals and institutions with Bell & Beckwith in Toledo, Ohio. Ayling is a NASD-registered representative and holds Series 7, 24, and 63 licenses. He formerly served as a captain with the U.S. Army and served in Vietnam. He has also helped launch several start-up operations, financed several business enterprises, and provided management support for a variety of management phases with emphasis on business integration and financial controls.
LD Holdings is currently working on a plan which calls for accumulating at least 50 companies and consolidating them into business units whenever possible. Earlier this year, the company disclosed it had received a commitment from a qualified institution for a credit line of up to $10 million enabling it to pursue its initial round of business acquisitions. Through its partnership with Internet Marketing Consortium, LD Holdings plans to increase its outreach to angel investors for acquisition capital while cultivating its extensive database of company, entrepreneur, institutional and non-institutional investor prospects.
