When the finalists for the 15th annual M&A Awards were announced in August 2016, and Chicago-based Madison Street Capital was one of chosen, very few people in the merger and acquisition industry were surprised. Charles Botchway and Tony Marsala built a strong boutique investment firm the old fashion way. Hard work, perseverance, networking, and the strong urge to help small businesses grow, are the tools Botchway and Marsala used to be one of the best M&A firms in the industry.
Madison Street Capital was nominated for being the boutique investment firm of the year, and for closing the acquisition deal between Acuna and Associados S.A., and Dowco. The Dowco acquisition deal was just one of the M&A transactions that Madison Street Capital orchestrates every year. Botchway is known for negotiating transactions valued at $100 million to $500 million. Botchway has an excellent track record and a solid reputation when it comes to closing small and medium-sized mergers and acquisitions. In fact, the Madison Street Capital reputation in the investment industry is a global reputation. Tony Marsala is an expert in emerging market mergers and acquisitions.
Mergers and Acquisitions are just one of the financial services offered by Madison Street. The financial advisory services they provide to small businesses, and their valuation services are the best in the industry, according to Madison Street’s Senior Managing Director Karl D’Cunha. Madison Street Capital is an all-inclusive financial company that pays attention to details when analyzing the potential in companies that want to expand. Being recognized by M&A Advisor is proof. Madison Street Capital is serious about what they do.
The M&A Advisor has recognized the top performers in the industry for the last 19 years. The cream of the crop in the M&A industry has won the M&A Advisor award. But it is also an honor to be nominated. Madison Street Capital is on track to make company M&A projections in 2017. The executive team’s focus is on healthcare, construction, manufacturing, technology, retail, energy, mining, and transportation companies. Focusing on those companies, in those sectors of the economy, produced excellent results the last two years. Mergers in the energy sector were above average in 2016. Retail mergers are still challenging, but healthcare mergers like the Bracco/Bayer AG proposed merger are still sending shock waves through the industry. That merger is a $4.3 million deal. Botchway and Marsala don’t get involved in deals that big for a number of reasons.
