Responsibilities

Seeking 2-3 highly motivated analysts to assist in the sourcing and evaluation of potential acquisitions. This is ideal for students or graduates who want to pursue careers in private equity, investment banking or consulting. While this internship is unpaid, we will provide letters of recommendation, introductions and opportunities to learn key financial valuation tools.

Responsibilities
This job will be demanding and we ask that you only apply once you clearly understand the scope.

Deal Sourcing (60%)

The goal is to generate as many qualified potential acquisition targets as possible in a given industry. This will require hard work and creativity utilizing databases, research reports, cold calling local chambers of commerce, among other sources. Once identified, information will need to be collected on the given target and organized in our internal database.
A target will be considered qualified if it meets our ‘good business’ criteria. We will work together to determine what meets the Longeron threshold and strategize the best way to engage with the given company.
Tasks include cold calling companies, drafting letters to business owners, managing our internal database, logging contact history, company and industry research and idea generation.

Deal Evaluation (40%)

Once a deal becomes active and owners are engaged in a potential sale process, we will work on a number of important tasks including; drafting offer letters, financial modeling and benchmarking, preparing deal summaries for investors, due diligence and coordinating with professional accounting and legal firms.

Ideally candidates can work full-time but at a minimum we are looking for a 30 hour per week commitment. We work out of an office in downtown Kirkland accessible by the Kirkland Transit Center from 9am-6pm. Given the amount of time we will invest in the given candidate, we ask for at least a 4 month tenure.
