Acquisition process

Whether you are a founder, entrepreneur, business owner, intermediary, or broker, you will find that working with Cincy Brands is a seamless and winning proposition for everyone involved.

Unlike the typical investors, many of whom are individual investors or very large Amazon aggregators, we pride ourselves on our values and running a straightforward acquisition process.

We differentiate ourselves by:

  • A quick closing process - from LOI to closing
  • All cash financing (with flexibility)
  • Dedicated acquisition team
  • A defined list of criteria making for a quick screening process
  • Established documentation and due diligence processes

During and after the acquisition process, our team will identify key operational improvements including warehousing inefficiencies, supply chain and inventory optimization, marketing initiatives, branding & packaging initiatives, digital acquisition strategies, brick and mortar & marketplace distribution opportunities, and customer service opportunities to create brand value and drive customer satisfaction.

We have a focus on acquiring founder-owned brands. If you have a brand that you’ve built and you are interested in selling, please get in touch. We understand founder-led brands and have the expertise to drive growth and keep your vision alive. Our ideal target is $1-10MM revenue brands with positive net margins that have demonstrated consumer demand across at least two channels: direct-to-consumer, ecommerce marketplaces, or traditional retail. Learn more about our criteria.

We are generally not a fit in high growth situations (like venture capital), or for businesses seeking minority growth capital. If your business is growing so rapidly that you are looking for a venture-style exit, we encourage you to keep building and still reach out! We are happy to refer you to partners in our network.

Entrepreneurs and intermediaries should contact Sean Lee, Co-Founder and President, at with general inquiries or acquisition opportunities. You may also fill out the form here.
