Investment Banking Services
Senior Partner Mike Skillingstad highlights 3 quick ways Blue Ops is able to help investment banks through the sales process using our software and expertise.
Private Equity Services
Blue Ops Senior Partner Mike Skillingstad describes how the team is able to help private equity clients when they decide to sell a portfolio company.
We used Blue Ops in the diligence process for Atlanta Cheesecake Company. When we acquired the business, we already had the hierarchy pieces built and we already had the data in. We were able to get reporting within the first week or two after acquisition.
Like with other private equity jobs, my job at Louisiana Fish Fry will end when we sell the company. When that happens, I’ll be onto my next CFO job. When I accept that job offer, the first call I’ll make will be to my wife. The second I’ll make will be to Blue Ops.
Obviously, there’s a shelf life to information – the longer it takes to get out, the less value it has. The Catalyst software allows us to ask more time-relevant questions and make more time-relevant changes. We can ask much more pointed questions.
My only wish is that we would have slotted Blue Ops in sooner than we did… I can imagine how beneficial it must be to get the team involved right from the get-go.
The analyses you’ve worked to provide have made an impact and helped ease the diligence burden on our end. It has been great to work with the team.
