Business Focus:
Founded in 2005 by Charlie Maskell, Chesapeake Corporate Advisors, LLC is a boutique investment banking and corporate advisory firm that successfully serves investor-owned and closely held emerging growth and middle market companies that are looking to create and/or realize shareholder value. Our clients earn revenues generally between $10 million and $200 million, and recognize the benefit our unique, three-pronged approach, provides them.

Value Creation
Our strategic assessment is designed to guide clients through a comprehensive qualitative and quantitative process to understand the current value of their company, refine strategic objectives, and make recommendations for value enhancement.

Growth/Development Planning
We complete comprehensive analysis to evaluate opportunities for growth and to explore alternatives for maximizing shareholder value including either organic growth or expansion through acquisition. This process includes industry and market analysis and an understanding of client┐s short term and long-term objectives.

Exit Planning / Succession Planning
We review and refine with owners their personal and company strategic objectives. Evaluate strategic ownership succession alternatives and make recommendations to provide the basis for a formalized succession/ exit plan. Planning addresses current and future value of the company, funding sources, shareholder protections, and triggering events.

Sell-Side Representation
We design a customized process to maximize value for each client during the sale engagement based on the client┐s preferences. These factors will include the number of parties, timing, and retention of management personnel.

Buy-Side Representation
We partner with clients to identify relevant acquisition criteria and establish a strategic process to identify, research and prioritize potential targets to optimize growth and expansion.

We complete comprehensive analysis of merging entities to ensure client succeeds in getting the best deal.

We develop a capital structure that ensures maximum returns and minimal dilution through the use of senior debt, subordinated debt, mezzanine debt, preferred stock, and common stock.

​Growth Capital
We identify the most appropriate alternative sources of capital for business growth with minimal dilution to existing owners.

​Management Buy-Out
We advise management teams seeking to acquire an operating entity from its owners as well as owners seeking to sell an operation to its managers.
