- Non-Sponsored Leveraged Buyouts
- Leveraged Buyouts
- Buying Out A Business Partner or Owner
- The Company Has Become An Acquisition Target

Lantern Capital Advisors delivers our corporate finance services using a tailored, hourly based approach that serves the best interests of our clients at a cost that is a fraction of our (investment banking) competition.
Beyond raising capital for leveraged buyouts, we also offer corporate financial planning services, serve as a corporate financial advisor, create professional comprehensive business plans, and serve as corporate financial consultants to monitor financial performance in order to help our clients make sound decisions and realize their long goals and potential.
Lantern Capital Advisors Helps Companies Explore Their "What If"
Lantern Capital Advisors uses a proprietary planning process to help companies quickly evaluate opportunities, then develop the plans and access the capital to make it happen. We offer a unique combination of experience, objectivity, and value.
- Experience- All we do is help growing companies explore, plan, and execute business and financial strategies to realize their potential.
- Objectivity- Fees for most corporate finance advisors are determined by the strategies or products they recommend. We work on an hourly consulting basis, so clients can always trust our advice.
- Value- We deliver our corporate financial planning services using a proprietary planning process that is highly effective, and gives clients peace of mind, consistent results, and delivers substantial value at a fraction of the cost of our (investment banking) competition.
We took our financial and management consulting experience over hundreds of engagements, and created a unique engagement process that is superior to all others in terms of time, cost, communication, and client expectations. Clients always have a clear understanding of where they are in the process, a basis for making good financial decisions, and an ability to start or stop the process with no on-going obligations. This gives our clients peace of mind, control, and unmatched value relative to any other advisor or consultant.
All we do is help growing private companies. We know their problems, and their alternatives, and have referenced clients to prove it. Further, unlike investment funds, banks, or investment bankers, Lantern is truly independent. Our compensation is hourly based. We take no finder's fees from institutions, and do not seek or accept any equity (or warrant) compensation from our clients. Our goal is simply to serve the best interests of our clients - regardless of the size, amount, or type of financing sought.
As fee based consultants, our hourly rates are comparable to a middle market consulting, accounting, or law firm. Then by combining those rates with our unique engagement process, we are able to get clients market feedback on their financing capabilities extremely fast which minimizes the client's risk and costs (both in terms of their time and cash expenditures).
Lantern Capital Advisors succeeds in developing business plans and raising growth capital for entrepreneurs and businesses. We help companies quickly understand their Company’s future value and develop a business plan to make that happen.
Our clients are fast growing businesses held back by limited capital. By engaging our services to raise capital for their business, Lantern Capital Advisors helps our clients determine their own capital requirements based on the funding requirements of the business plan and growth strategy.
Lantern Capital Advisors secures financing and raises capital for our clients from a broad range of private and public financial institutions. We help companies find and negotiate business financing and raise capital that minimizes dilution and personal financial liability to the company owners. We also assist our clients in buying out company shareholders in order to further increase the future value.
