TBG Holdings began as an off-shoot of The Birch Group, which was started in early 2000. The Birch Group was a consulting firm working, primarily, with small cap private and public companies that wanted to grow, either organically, or through mergers and acquisitions. We saw that many public small cap companies ran into a shortage of capital, which forced them to let their accounting and finances fall behind. Our philosophy is, if you know the financial details of the business, you have a better chance of success. With this in mind, The Birch Group partnered up with R3 Accounting to form TBG Holdings Corp, incorporating the business expertise from successful, innovative, and dynamic business & service companies. The combined entity, TBG Holdings, offers a fusion of cognitive thinking, deal structuring, growth strategies, and capital recruitment.
TBG Holdings has continuously refined its operations focus over the ensuing years. As the markets matured and cycled through their seasons we adjusted our approach to take best advantage of the opportunities presented in each season. In the present environment, our strongest focus is on bolstering the security and value of our members’ holdings through 1) the acquisition of portfolio companies with strong growth potential and 2) expansion of the shareholder base.
