driving sustainable growth
Avondale is a strategic advisory firm that identifies and executes initiatives to drive sustainable value growth. Our strategic and financial advice helps companies create value in their business and focus investment around the most profitable growth opportunities. We partner with management teams and investors to increase value through organic growth, M&A growth and core business performance improvement. We understand that success stems from developing strategy and delivering results.
Our collective talents and experience enable us to deliver distinctive, results-oriented insights to clients and investors. Our expertise, which spans strategic advisory, M&A, and principal investing allows us to truly partner with our clients to collectively pursue tailored growth trajectories. Ultimately, we measure ourselves by the long-term shareholder value creation we create for our clients.
Avondale's perspective is that a business should aim, above all, to perpetually create value for its shareholders. We define this goal, creating value, as generating economic profits or operating profits in excess of the cost of capital. We believe superior management and investor teams can have a dramatic effect on business value by focusing the organization on key value drivers; we assist management and investor teams to systematically identify these key business drivers and execute on the highest-value growth opportunities.
