Defer, Scale, Achieve, Sell

CSS enters partnerships with entrepreneurs hungry for a competitive edge, or reluctant to pay large capital gain taxes that effectively cost 10 to 20 years of a business life. Our business proposal is to invest intellectual capital, strategic advice and business expertise for 3 to 7% of the benefits we provide. This results in a typical 20x Multiplier℠ result. Our partners are always self-sustaining, already successful enterprises or property owners. We enhance the benefits of that success, convert ordinary income to capital gain, increase incomes, growth, and profitability, and lower taxes for our partners.

We always quantify expected results before engaging. We are agile and can quickly move to engagement with timely solutions to pressing problems. We understand the importance of minimally impacting ongoing operations, both before and after we make an investment of ourselves.


Example

We strive to partner on the active business side in growth opportunities with proven winners who will likely exit within 3 to 5 years. We rise and fall with those we join.

Our business model for a growing business is much like that of a farmer partnering with a developer on the farmer’s property. We are like the developer who helps the farmer maximize value. Our money comes with the farmer’s success.

As a farmer brings valuable land to a developer and partners through smart planning to enjoy primarily deferred capital gain and substantially more income, so our partners bring valuable assets and businesses to us. They stay in control while we enhance returns, convert ordinary income to capital gain, and defer the gain. This minimally results in 25 to 40% more income from pre-tax principal, and usually much more.
