The Kratos team is honored to be recognized in the 2021 Axial Industrial Top 50.

The list features 50 of the top industrials-focused PE firms and M&A advisors active in the lower middle market today.

The COVID-19 has spurred unprecedented economic crises across the globe. Firms that can thrive in this economic landscape prove their mettle, showing flexibility and the ability to help their clients thrive even in a once-in-a-century crisis.

“This business is tough and requires a remarkable amount of dedication,” says Principal Josh Bammel. “Nothing is guaranteed, and our client’s positive outcome is why we exist. Our team is honored.”

As we look to the future, M&A is poised to accelerate, especially when you partner with Kratos. PE firms have more funds available for new investments than they can invest. This is promising news for future sellers, and should make 2021 and 2022 banner M&A years. Now is the time to consider an exit or sale.

As you navigate the sale process, heed the economic warnings, particularly regarding capital gains tax increases, if you intend to sell in the next 2-3 years. Planning drives value. The time to plan your exit is now!
