Transaction Background

Platform was introduced to ALM in early 2015 by John Graf, a successful executive in the financial services industry. Emily Hollis, Co-Founder / CEO of ALM, was seeking a partner to purchase the ownership interests of her two partners who were interested in transitioning out of the business. Platform provided liquidity to the selling partners and also provided an opportunity for the next level of ALM management to become investors and financial partners in the company. Platform’s role at ALM is to provide guidance on the strategic direction of the business as well as evaluate add-on acquisitions to pursue.
