Who is Auctus Capital Partners?

Companies turn to Auctus Capital Partners to identify opportunities and help navigate the ever-changing financial landscape. It supports lower middle market businesses making complex financial decisions; creating innovative solutions to help clients raise capital, through debt or by selling equity in the company, with a track record of successful growth and exit for businesses pursuing M&A transactions that achieve premium valuations and exceptional results.

Support provided to clients ranges from analyzing financial situations, conducting due diligence and valuations to identifying targets and evaluating potential synergies between parties, and acting as an intermediary to facilitate transactions.

Coupled with consistent and superior outcomes, our high level of repeat clients is a testament to the results Auctus delivers — and in the aftermarket automotive space, this is significant.

Supporting Aftermarket Automotive

Auctus clients capture the value of our multiple relationships with equity and debt investors within the automotive industry to help achieve their goals.

Our primary focus is on advising automotive and truck component suppliers — serving both the OE and aftermarket segments — working with the leading Tier I suppliers in the industry who handle non-core divestitures with private equity owned-businesses and private companies.

Auctus is led by senior bankers who have spent their careers building specific knowledge of the companies, trends, and insights relevant to the industry sectors, who roll up their sleeves and work with clients to support day-to-day needs from the very beginning to the very end. Our understanding of the automotive industry and related aftermarket parts sector, as well as appreciation for the needs of both sellers and buyers, translates to exceptional outcomes for our clients.

Regardless of the deal — if you’re the company being acquired or the one doing the expansion — it’s the investment bank’s job to ensure that you walk away from the deal fully satisfied.

High-Value Opportunities + Growth Areas

The automotive industry is seeing increasing interest from both strategic buyers and financial sponsors — and aftermarket parts is one of the most attractive areas of growth.

Against a backdrop of trends that have kept vehicles on the road longer, demand for accessories that add personalization, performance or functionality is growing, and technology continues to enable more consumers to shop directly for parts.

As a result, M&A deals will show greater consolidation among parts distributors, aggressive expansion among OEMs into the aftermarket, and a range of new players operating direct-to-consumer marketing and digitally-driven business models. In fact, e-commerce is the fastest-growing channel with sales for the automotive aftermarket expected to triple revenue in the next decade.

Services and diagnostics are also expected to grow, but only slightly faster than wear-and-tear and crash-relevant parts — which will push some OEMs into creating their own networks of non-brand-specific repair shops, and others to introduce supplemental 3rd party brands.

Auctus’ clients are able to enter new eras of growth not only through these trends, but access to our universe of strategic and financial investors that enable best possible synergies across automotive sectors and businesses in adjacent industry verticals.

“Our partnership with BASE will allow us to pursue additional customer acquisition strategies, as well as expand our DIY bumper product lines and expand the sale of our utility racks, tire carrier kits and lights. These growth strategies complement our existing product lines and customer-focused marketing approach,” Steen added.

“Auctus offered services and counsel far beyond the capital raise transaction, recognizing our long-term vision and guiding us in defining a strategy so all functions of our corporate infrastructure move harmoniously. Its team is integral to our growth and we value them as important members of Limitless family,” George added.

“The appointment of Auctus is an important step for Splash as the company continues to evolve,” said Imeson. “We look forward to a long partnership together.”
