Keelson Advisors is headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Keelson was formed years ago to provide the Gulf Coast and Midsouth Region with much needed services that could only be found in distant, far away metropolitan markets. Keelson, as a result of its professionalism, expertise and superior results has grown rapidly over the years. Now, Keelson, not only serves the Gulf Coast and Midsouth Region, but it also serves clients nationally and internationally.
Since its inception, Keelson has brokered the sale of hundreds of companies. It currently has a substantial number of companies contracted and listed for sale with valuations in excess of $1 million dollars. See our listings summary web page for more detail. Keelson has shown remarkable success in finding appropriate and attractive financing to support the sale of these transactions. Our corporate financial acumen and experience is a critical element in our success. This has shown to be very important as the vast major of acquisition transactions have a financing component.
Keelson has a staff of very seasoned professionals with wide and diverse business backgrounds. Because our partners have all built and sold their own companies, we not only understand the transaction process, but also the emotional process of taking such a critically important personal and financial step. These professionals bring to Keelson clients expertise in such important areas as Marketing, Banking, Health Care, Finance, Taxation, Acquisition Negotiation, Operational Integration, Sale of Professional Sports Team Franchises, and the evaluation/acquisition of high quality income producing real estate properties, which are really businesses. Some examples of these income producing real estate properties are mini storage warehouses, apartment complexes, RV parks, mobile home parks, strip shopping centers, etc.
Much of Keelson’s success can be attributed to the relationships, contacts, and access to hundreds if not thousands of the premier equity funding groups. Funds located in the United States and worldwide seeking quality Mid Market acquisitions. Since September 11, 2001 and the subsequent stock market collapse thereafter, there has been a large movement of funds from the stock market to equity funds. Today, it is truly a sellers market. There is more investment equity funding than there are suitable acquisition candidates, or lending opportunities.
Keelson Advisors was formed by entrepreneurs. We are results driven and proactive. Our decision making process is short. It we are not able to add value to a client’s strategy, we will advise immediately. If we can add value, we will move forward expeditiously.
