Anthony & Company Holdings is a independent consultancy firm, focused on the initiation, facilitation and completion of transactions.
Anthony & Company Holdings (‘ACH’) is a American-based investment group with particular focus on making and actively managing direct investments in Europe and USA, both as principal and on behalf of selected co-investors. We seek to acquire equity stakes in companies with growth prospects, usually in the form of pre-IPO funding, with a view to assisting them with their continued development managerially and strategically and ultimately securing a realization of our investment through floatation or sale.
Mark Anthony Rodriguez is ACH’s Chief Executive Officer. Mark is the former Chief Technician Officer of Dependable Roofing Inc, an a successful construction company based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. His Advantage Plus™ System has been involved in excess of 10 million dollars.
ACH looks for situations where it can create profitable investments by adding value. We add value as follows:
In certain industries which we know well (which includes the internet, particularly download businesses) we work closely with existing management to improve operations, to develop innovative marketing strategies, to evaluate and enter new markets and to improve overall positioning to maximize the revenue and profit base and take the company to a new growth trajectory.
In other cases where we have less direct industrial experience we support management with our strategic insight, ways of doing business and guidance based on our substantial collective experience in many different industries and geographies. Here we work more like pro-active non-executive directors and consultants, dealing both with specific issues and supporting new opportunities as they arise
In these and other cases, we add value through financial engineering. This may be providing capital for a timely acquisition or a refinancing, but also includes planning where and when is the best place to raise finance and from whom; when and how to exit; and how to package a company and its operations so that it is ready for market, whether an IPO or a trade sale.
Whilst we will look at transactions in most sectors, we are particularly interested in businesses which are involved in alternative energy, power generation and infrastructure, together with consumer-facing businesses including the internet.
Our ideal investment is between US$2 million and $50 million. A target company will have revenues of $2 million plus (although in some cases, eg the internet, we will look at companies which are smaller). Ideally a target company will be currently profitable and cash-generative, but consistent with the above we also look at companies which are not, either because they need reorganizing or because they are at an early stage of their development. We recognize that each situation is different, and we look at each case on its merits.
Our investment strategy always requires provisions for the protection of investors’ interests, including board representation and appropriate financial controls.
