THE KRATOS DIFFERENCE – Process Driven Results
Clients like you are putting their life’s work into our hands. Mutual trust is critical. Our bankers ask that our clients be open, honest, and forthright about their goals, their company, and its operations. In return, our bankers are held to the same standard. We must be able to trust each other to wisely manage and protect our clients’ interests and to provide clients with unvarnished counsel and advice.
As experienced bankers we can do a lot by ourselves. However, it takes a strong, professional team to create a balanced process that maximizes the value of our client’s company and deliver realized results. Our bankers are a part of a team, which includes market researchers, financial auditors, capital market relationships, CPAs, legal professionals, and finally, post-acquisition integrators. In addition, working with Kratos as an established firm, provides our bankers access to other experienced bankers who can provide additional assistance, if needed.
Working with Kratos means having a banker who understands your business as well as how to manage a major financial transaction for each unique company. This is like getting married. Personal chemistry is important. Our bankers understand clients like you have both personal and financial goals. We trust you will be comfortable and confident listening to our advice and guidance. This is one of the most important decisions a business owner will ever make in their professional life. Kratos will make sure we have a good fit from the start. Expectations are deal success critical; therefore, our bankers take the time to properly set realistic client expectations from the onset.
Major financial deals are not completed overnight. There may be unforeseen issues to be addressed along the way. Some will be simple, some complex, and some demanding; our experience will be the mitigating factor. Our bankers anticipate and stand beside our clients with their goals at the top of their mind. Our bankers do the heavy lifting, and refuse to give up. Our bankers always have a backup plan, and are willing to do whatever it takes to successfully close the deal.
Our team is made up of dedicated, industry veterans who are not driven by greed, but by the simple desire to assist business owners and clients realize their dreams. What really sets us apart, however, is our desire to do what the larger firms simply can’t − to carefully and personally guide our clients through the transaction process with the individual attention they deserve.

“I am pleased to say when I met Kratos Capital, that they took the time to evaluate our market potential and several deal probable outcomes. The team not only told me they could complete our deal, but for more money - both of which turned out to be true. Kratos originated over six offers for my business. The firm had a great handle on the closing process, in addition to negotiating a very favorable equity agreement for me and the other shareholders. Ultimately, the final purchase price netted an 84% premium, higher than any unsolicited offer we ever had received prior to engaging the professionals at Kratos Capital. Simply stated, we received a better deal because of the services provided by Kratos Capital!”Albie’s Foods, Inc
