Abacus Private Equity focuses on maximizing cash proceeds to Canadian business owners that are selling their assets or shares. Abacus acts as a principal in its transactions, using its time tested principal approach to delivering additional value for vendors. Abacus places a special emphasis on the taxation elements of the acquisitions it executes, seeking to provide additional value to vendors through efficient transaction structures.
In most asset sales, Abacus believes that there is an opportunity to enhance cash proceeds to sellers by optimizing the seller’s tax position. Abacus’ approach is designed to capitalize on this opportunity while minimizing risk and maximizing a seller’s cash proceeds.
Abacus employs some of the leading Canadian tax practitioners in its acquisition operations and enjoys close, long-term relationships with the top tax advisors in the largest Canadian accounting and legal firms.
