Selling a Business In the Age of Digital Disruption

Orchid Black operators find a creative exit strategy for a technology company.

Summary

The Challenge

A start-up company with a large capital investment was caught in a technology change and had already burned through most of the capital allocated to the company. A cyclical economic turn removed most of the revenue stream from the company’s portfolio. The company had to quickly cut costs and find a buyer for the technology it had developed.


The Solution

Orchid Black operators created a plan and executed on the following:

  • Developed a strategy to package the IP of the company and find a buyer
  • Eliminated all non-essential members of the workforce
  • Found and presented to potential buyer

The Outcome

The company assets were sold to a competitor of the firm.
