Hastings Equity Partners works with business intermediaries, accountants, lenders, and attorneys to help us find good investment opportunities. We enjoy positive and mutually rewarding relationships with these intermediaries, and we work hard to be considerate, confidential, and responsive.
We understand the complexities involved in closing deals of this size, and we act accordingly by living up to a set of established principles:
- Respect for the intermediary's time
- Respect for the value of the relationship between intermediary and business owner
- Respect for the established process (keeping the intermediary in the intermediary position)
- Be up front and honest in what we do and how we do it
Intermediaries have chosen to work with Hastings for the following reasons:
- Immediate response to calls and correspondence
- Fast, frank indications of interest
- Customary finder's fees to intermediaries
- Committed capital
- Strong track record and network of lending relationships
- Straightforward, decisive and respectful negotiations
