Business Advisory Services
Lantern Capital Advisors is a trusted corporate finance advisor for growing companies in all stages of the company life cycle.
Completing a corporate financial plan and securing needed financing are two of the many steps required towards helping a business realize its potential. As a company’s financial plans converge with real life, entrepreneurial businesses, particularly those that are growing at a rapid rate, will be presented with all kinds of new opportunities and challenges. With a strong knowledge of the past, and the plans for the future, Lantern's business advisory services can help clients in a timely and on-going basis as those needs arise.
Lantern Capital Advisors serves as a trusted corporate business advisor and consultant for all companies faced with business questions. Current and future needs of a business and entrepreneur often include major decisions like selling the company, evaluating sales or acquisition opportunities, or planning a five year exit strategy.
Lantern’s philosophy is based on helping entrepreneurs and growing companies answer and understand the question, “WHAT IF?”.
- What if we had more capital to grow our business?
- What if we bought another company or competitor?
- What if we bought out a partner or owner?
- What if we could refinance our company’s debt?
- What if we wanted to exit the business in a few years?
- What if we wanted to take liquidity (capital) out of the business
- What if we could get rid of personal financial guarantees?
- What if we wanted to sell our business to our employees, family, or competitors?
Because our goal is helping our client’s realize their potential, Lantern Capital Advisors serves as a trusted corporate finance advisor and serves our clients in any way that ensures they reach their goals. Because our corporate financial consulting model allows us the flexibility to be as involved as necessary with our clients, Lantern Capital Advisors is able to work in conjunction with our clients in order to achieve the desired outcome without any bias or ulterior motive.
Other issues and concerns of companies outside their comfort zone include hiring a full or part time Chief Financial Officer (CFO), upgrading accounting systems, developing a benefit or option plan for key employees of the business, or writing business plans as requested by current lenders. Other, less weighty decisions of a business may include reviewing corporate financial plans against actual results, making changes to the financial or growth plan, helping client negotiate current credit lines, or interviewing and hiring a CPA firm.
In addition to the expertise mentioned above, Lantern’s experience includes implementing and overseeing corporate business strategies as outsourced executives. Our highly experienced team of consultants have worked collectively to start-up, manage, and grow highly profitable and successful organizations.

What our clients are saying...
“Lantern presented us with financing options far exceeding the traditional bank proposals in the past. They spent enough time to understand the issues surrounding our need so they could concentrate on the options that would be pertinent to us, significantly reducing our work on the project. The next time we have a financing need, I am confident I will discuss it with Lantern first.”
— SS, Owner, Retail Services Center
“Lantern helped us look at many different types of financing alternatives and helped us find a new capital provider that increased our funding limits and released some of my personal collateral. As our business began to grow rapidly, Lantern also helped us modify our financing terms with our new capital provider. Since that time, Lantern has helped us evaluate acquisitions, set long term and short term financial goals and serves as an on-going business financial advisor. I enjoy working with Lantern and I trust that their team have my best interests at heart.”
