SITUATION 1: RETIREMENT BUYOUT
We invest for the next generation, giving small businesses a new lease on life.
It's true. Baby Boomers are retiring in droves. As the most entrepreneurial generation our nation has ever seen, their retirement raises a vitally important question: what's happening to all these Boomer-owned businesses? Some get passed down to hand-picked family successors. Not all are so lucky. Some sell to competitors, often getting torn apart in the process. Others simply shut down. In most cases, owners wait far too long to sell, letting their business performance atrophy, and forcing difficult circumstances for the successor, should one surface.
However the transition unfolds, one thing is certain: unclear succession plans drag down the business. Without clarity, it's difficult to invest and even more difficult to grow. Employees fail to realize their potential because they don't know what the future holds for the business.
Cub Investments is working to create a better alternative. We help owners exit with pride, allow employees to continue on, and bring new capital, talent, and energy for the business to grow for another generation. We come hungry to roll up our sleeves and take on the hard projects that will allow the business to ignite new growth and make critical investments for the long-term health of the company.

SITUATION 2: PARTNERSHIP BUY-IN
Need an equity partner to ignite growth?
You already own a small business you know has tremendous potential, but you're feeling stuck. We get it. It's lonely. It's hard. There's a reason in business people say if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
We invest and partner with like-minded, high energy industry experts looking to scale their business to the next level. Our partners choose us because they want to elevate their leadership, drive institutional rigor into their systems and processes, and grow their business to new heights.
How does it work? We will buy our stake at a fair valuation set buy an objective third party, then grind it out with our partner. We will help them transition from focusing on daily operations to focusing on strategy, culture, and investing for the future. We will help identify key areas of focus and develop the talent, systems, and processes needed to drive performance in each area.
SITUATION 3: SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE
Have a business in a tough spot that needs help?
Even great businesses can run into trouble. This is incredibly common in small business. Key employees leave. Mission critical systems go down.
We can come in and structure an arrangement where we are rewarded for helping make and implement critical decisions that will get the business back on track and restore cash flow and growth.
We will help the current owner eliminate personal financial risks associated with their ownership and help get their equity position back on track.
