One of the keys to putting a merger or an acquisition together is getting shareholders to agree. Shareholders and investors have different agendas and unique perceptions about the nature of a merger or acquisition. Some shareholders are interested in growth potential and consumer awareness more than other investors. But almost all investors want more profit. Being a true capitalist means paying attention to the rewards more than the difficulties. And there are a lot of difficulties when it comes to merging with another company. Even small and medium size company mergers are hard to complete. Some investors don’t like change.
Madison Street Capital, the Chicago-based M&A investment firm has an unusually high success rate in the small and medium size M&A industry. That’s what Madison Street Capital is a finalist for the 15th annual M&A Advisor Awards. The M&A Advisor Awards are like the Academy Awards in the movie industry. Nominated investment firms for an M&A Advisor Award are the cream of the crop in the financial industry. The Madison Street Capital reputation for closing difficult and complicated mergers is one of the reasons the firm is a finalist.
The executive team at Madison Street Capital, under the direction of CEO Charles Botchway and COO Tony Marsala, are experts in merging two different companies, even when there is friction between management and shareholders in both companies. Botchway and Marsala are also able to provide other services to companies that are not ready to merge or be acquired. Madison Street offers valuation services and financial investment help to companies that need those services.
The merger price is always the top concern of shareholders and investors. Layoffs and cost issues also prevent some companies from closing a merger deal with another company. But some small and medium size mergers make too much sense not to consider. Madison Street executives are the sense makers in those transactions. There may be language issues or cultural challenges when mergers take place between companies in emerging markets and established markets. The slightest quirk could spoil the deal, so Botchway and Marsala make sure all the cultural and language challenges are on the table first.
Madison Street Capital continues to set an example for other investment firms. The firm continues to win awards and continues to establish intercompany goals. Every day is another adventure in the merger and acquisition world, and Botchway and Marsala and their team meet each day with excitement, and the will to close the next deal.
