Our journey to making extraordinary exits possible.

Our founder, Rob Follows, created STS Capital Partners in 2003, after he sold his business the conventional M&A way and felt the experience was reduced to a mere transaction. He resolved to fix the M&A process and make a sell-side stand on behalf of entrepreneurial business owners looking to exit by building a company that combined strategic selling with his passion for charitable donations to make the world a better place.

Today, STS Capital Partners is a global M&A firm, helping hundreds of clients to achieve Extraordinary Exits and realize true potential value by.

  • Being expert guides along the emotional and strategic journey of selling a business
  • Achieving maximum financial value by selling strategically to the people that buy strategically
  • Creating legacy potential by supporting clients to use the financial upside to make our world a better place

As STS Capital Partners has expanded we’ve remained true to our core vision. By combining our empathy for entrepreneurial business owners with leading strategy and marketing principles, we’ve reimagined the M&A equation to make Extraordinary Exits possible for our clients.

Our extensive global relationships, world-class team and proven deal process bring international strategic buyers and investors to the table. The result is larger, more competitive, multi-bidder soft auctions that deliver maximum financial returns. By generating maximum returns, we’ve helped clients fulfill bigger ambitions in life and leave lasting legacies by inspiring charitable donations that make the world a better place.

    Assess strategic value drivers before and after a planned roll up and entertain multiple offers without granting exclusivity

    Our client was a privately owned wireless retailer and a very successful national agent for one of the top U.S. carriers. The company had a solid track record of good performance and was in the process of assessing potential growth strategies, so the timing of taking the business to market was a key factor. The objective was to add 30 stores to reach a total of over 160 locations.
