The 15th Annual M&A Advisor Awards is coming up, and a relatively young company by the name of Madison Street Capital is one of the 15 finalists. This definitely says a lot about a company that was founded only a few years ago, in 2005. It seems that young companies like Madison Street Capital are leading the way during these financially unstable times. It is clear to some that the national and global economy are in a state of flux, meaning that there is room for error but also room for growth. The people behind Madison Street Capital have taken advantage of all the opportunities presented to them, which could be the reason why they were nominated for this prestigious award.
Madison Street Capital was founded by a couple of financial experts who wanted the firm to be the answer to the middle market. The company’s goal was to be the most effective middle market investment banking firm. The business offered solutions to this particular section of the financial sector. The company started slow, but what company does not? Still, it did not take long for Madison Street Capital to pick up steam and dominate the financial sector. The company offers all types of financial services like business valuation, which is often very revealing. The company also offers merger and acquisition services, not to mention corporate advisory. In short, it is an all-encompassing company that seems to be making all the right moves.
The company’s expertise in favorable lending and forming great exit strategies for business owners has been the entity’s bread and butter. The company’s commitment to excellence has helped it become a formidable and internationally recognized investment banking firm for the middle market. The company now has offices all over North America, Africa, and Asia. There is little doubt as to why the company is one of the finalist when looking at everything it has accomplished.
The award is for those exhibiting excellence and providing true quality. The committee ensures that each company considered has made wise deals the past year. The committee also looks for effective restructuring and financing in the companies considered. Most importantly, the entities that are in the running must have contributed financial gain in the industry.
This was something that Madison Street Capital excelled at for two reasons: The first is that the company was instrumental in the Acquisition of Acuna & Asociados S.A. by Dowco. This deal was headed by one of the senior managers over at Madison Street Capital, and it was one of the most impressive deals under $100MM of the year. The second reason was simply because the company’s excellence earned it a nomination for the Boutique Investment Banking Firm of the Year.
Benzinga reports that the winner will be announced on Nov. 9 at the 15th Annual M&A Advisor Awards Gala.
