The Louthan Group, Inc. was founded in 2012 to provide corporate finance consulting services to privately held companies seeking to grow organically or through acquisitions, and to assist owners wishing to sell. The Louthan Group management team has decades of experience investing in and raising capital for expanding companies, as well as providing hands on guidance in mergers, acquisitions, and the sale of privately held companies.
Over the course of two decades in financial services, we have completed many transactions within a wide variety of industries serving individual business owners, partners, family offices, and private equity firms. One common thread that has emerged and has been consistent across all industries and throughout the past twenty years is that companies managed by teams with significant prior military service excel, and we launched VeteranCrowd.com to serve this unique group.
We have extensive expertise in National Security, Intelligence, and Homeland Security and we focus on Enterprise Software, Healthcare Services, Manufacturing, Distribution and Logistics.
VeteranCrowd is a crowd funding portal, presenting veteran-managed companies to accredited investors who support the premise that veterans developed skills in the military that enhance overall performance of private companies. VeteranCrowd seeks to be the first to market securing a lead position in this online capital formation niche. We believe the veteran-led companies outperform. Management teams with significant prior military experience developed skills early in their military careers that translate to better results in the private business sector. These veterans developed leadership qualities that include good communication skills, the ability to organize cohesive teams around a goal, to work with limited resources, and meet time constraints. Calm under pressure, these individuals bring a heightened sense of ethics to the business setting - they are trustworthy and reliable. They hold themselves to a higher standard.

"The Louthan Group represented me in a complicated, multi-company transaction that closed in March of 2014. Bob (Louthan) understood my goals from our first meeting and worked very closely with management to create a clear strategy for taking the company to market. Bob's background was ideal for the task as I wanted someone I could trust to truly engage suitors on current value while also articulating a sound and realistic downstream value post acquisition. Bob and his team were tremendous assets to the process and invaluable in getting the deal done with SIRVA. We could not have picked a better investment banking partner in the The Louthan Group and we are honored to now be a part of such a strong and creative company in SIRVA Worldwide."
"Bob provided ready availability and unvarnished assessments during the Med-Air transaction that I found valuable and timely as I moved forward to the final acquisition in late 2013. He was easy to work with and a true professional."
"We engaged The Louthan Group to identify and advise on acquisition opportunities. They identified a variety of potential companies, contacted and evaluated them, and provided sound recommendations. The Louthan Group found Pyramid, gained their trust, and then guided us throughout the process from initial proposals through to a successful closing."
