Frequently Asked Questions

What happens to my team? Do they need to move to San Antonio?

Finding great people is one of the biggest challenges growing companies face, so it's actually important to us that yours are a part of our future. We don't force anyone to relocate to San Antonio (though we would love to have them!) and operate multiple businesses with offices in other locations.

How long does your process usually take?

Once you're ready, we can move fast given that we look at businesses with similar dynamics every day, and we have a  straight-forward and standard set of legal and diligence requests. Generally, any slow-down is on the company side as they prepare diligence information they may not have on hand. First call to term sheet can be as quick as 2 weeks, and from term sheet to close, between 30 and 60 days, on average.

Does the location of my company matter to you?

We have acquired companies in the U.S. and internationally, and will continue to do business wherever we can find great companies. Post-investment or acquisition, we do prefer our companies to have critical mass in or around San Antonio, Texas; however, we are supportive of wherever businesses do business best.

Do I need to stay with the business post-investment or acquisition?

No, you don’t. We see Soilworks as the next phase of growth in a company’s evolution, and believe that scaling a company from $0–5m in ARR requires a different skillset than taking one from $5–20m, so a fresh perspective with more experience in the latter can be beneficial. That being said, founders have invaluable knowledge and we are thrilled if founders would like to stay on in a functional role (for example, CTO, CMO, etc.). However, historically many we have worked with have a new role or project in mind.

How do you value businesses?

Like most private equity investors, we value companies on a number of metrics, the important being scale and growth. Others considerations include customer base profile, gross margin, profitability, funnel metrics, and position in the market.
