Corporate Financial Planning

Lantern Capital Advisors is a corporate financial consulting firm to growing, profitable businesses.  We serve as a corporate financial advisor and strategist for these companies, and provide insight and experience that most company insiders don’t have.  Sometimes clients have a question that doesn’t necessarily require raising capital.  Lantern Capital Advisors and our team of corporate financial planning consultants works with our clients in order to develop comprehensive strategies for growth and helps our companies achieve these strategies.  Typically these projects involve identifying acquisition targets, corporate financial planning for future exit strategies, or simply assisting with exploring the question, “What if?”

What Our Clients Are Saying...

“My experience with Lantern Advisors has been long time coming and my expectations were exceeded. I had initially spoken to Chris Risey a few years ago and we ended up going with another firm. While the outcome at the end of the day was achieved it took much longer than expected and the cost was over 2X more than estimated and the billing was vague. I came back to speak with Chris after that experience and asked if he could step in and help me out of a real bind where I needed to get my last three years financial package ready for a potential lender with about a week’s notice and Sheryl Lyles knocked out a package that we would never have been able to put together internally in that amount of time and probably not even for the same cost due to the time. The ROI was definitely there. They 100% deliver on the promises made on the website. We will continue to work with them first on our future projects.”
Ivan Madrigal
CEO,  Purpose First Group

“I spoke with multiple financial firms about the possibility of conducting a management buyout of a particular division.  Most of them seemed more interested in developing a long term relationship with the parent company than they were in securing the best possible deal for me.  I was then referred to Lantern Capital Advisors and things just clicked.  They listened carefully to my vision for the business and patiently explained every step of the management buyout process.  They met every expedited timeline and used their extensive network to find me the best possible investment group.  I don't know that a deal would have been completed without their guidance.  I would recommend Lantern Capital Advisors to anyone contemplating a similar transaction.”

— JR, CEOConsumer Products Company

“I spent years doing research and speaking to advisors, investors, and banks.  I cold find no support for the kind of management buyout transaction I wanted to do and believed could be done.  That is, until I stumbled upon Lantern Capital Advisors.  Just one phone call to Lantern and I heard the words, "it absolutely can be done!"  Lantern then helped me make it happen.  I will be forever grateful to Lantern Capital Advisors for their counsel, expertise, and hard work in leading us to our goal.”
