INDUSTRY KNOWLEDGE & NETWORK
Stone Point leveraged its extensive experience and network to help expand LegalShield’s employee benefits presence through introductions to benefit brokers and corporate clients. Stone Point also facilitated distribution relationships with multiple well-known financial services partners.
OPERATIONAL ASSISTANCE & GOVERNANCE
Stone Point helped enhance LegalShield’s reporting framework to prioritize long-term value creation, as well as assist in the transition of the company’s largest vendor relationship, resulting in significant savings.
Stone Point worked with LegalShield to evaluate, negotiate, execute, and finance the company’s first major tuck-in acquisition in more than 20 years. Stone Point also broadened the company’s banking relationships, expanding its acquisition pipeline.
EXECUTIVE RECRUITING & ALIGNMENT
Stone Point assisted LegalShield in establishing an equity incentive plan, which was instrumental in hiring new executives to augment the company’s management team.
CAPITAL RAISING & STRUCTURING
Stone Point has facilitated multiple third-party debt financings, which have been critical to fund a tuck-in acquisition, lower the company’s cost of debt and return capital to shareholders. Also, less than a year and a half into its ownership of LegalShield, Stone Point led a minority recapitalization with a long-standing Stone Point relationship, which validated the company’s progress and provided partial liquidity to shareholders.
