Risk Management

The risk associated with management changes post-acquisition is mitigated as the management team of each target firm has agreed to remain in place to benefit from the IPO. Further, EAG employs an AI system to track and monitor performance, providing strategic and tactical business advice related to marketing, sales, operations, finance, people, and quality. The management team is incentivized with stock options tied to performance, and acquisition costs are paid in tranches to minimize the risk of the management team departing. Legal and HR-related risks are covered by agreed-upon warranties. These measures ensure a balanced risk profile for potential investors.
