10 Steps to Fight Financial Insecurity: Episode 99 of AV+

Listen to episode 99 of Commercial Integrator’s podcast, AV+: Ari Fuchs, Managing Director at DAK comes through with some business stability advice for the long term.

As investment bankers to the middle market, DAK anticipates that this period of uncertainty will be followed soon by a new, unprecedented time, a period of economic reckoning which will change the direction of many companies and the economic fate of their owners. Here’s what they say integrators should do before the worst of it arrives.

The decisions business owners make today (or don’t make today) are going to impact the economic viability of their business. And when the market does return, it will be a different economic period. Throughout these uncertain times, there will be businesses that thrive because they have taken decisive action early on, and unfortunately there will also be some casualties. In order to make sure you come out on top, there are short-term steps that small to medium sized businesses can take to receive financial liquidity. The most important thing is to talk to your trusted advisors, your accountants, bankers and lawyers. They can help you navigate the lifelines that the government will offer certain businesses. Once you have financial liquidity, identifying what business segments are generating cash flow and which are consuming money. Focusing on the more profitable segments of your business and allocating resources could make all the difference in how your business comes out of this economic period.

VCI – Emergency Vehicle Specialists recapitalized by Tightrope Capital & NewSpring Capital

VCI is the preeminent full lifecycle sales and service provider of emergency ambulance solutions to first aid squads, EMS organizations, fire departments, hospital organizations, municipalities, and private medical transport companies in the Mid-Atlantic Region. VCI was recapitalized by private equity firms Tightrope Capital Partners and NewSpring Capital.

DAK led a competitive, sell-side process for VCI, generating multiple offers from a wide range of strategic buyers and financial sponsors. By positioning the combination of VCI’s market leadership position, comprehensive services offering, strong manufacturer relationships, and robust backlog, DAK achieved an outstanding outcome for the company’s shareholders.

The acquisition provides the shareholders of VCI an opportunity to accelerate its growth strategy by expanding its core ambulance business, building out the value-added segments of conversions and remounts, implementing operational improvements, and pursuing acquisitions with the help of its new partners. Tightrope and NewSpring have an opportunity to leverage VCI’s strong management team and operating platform to build a multi-regional player in emergency ambulance solutions.
