Whether securing critical growth financing, selling the company, or refinancing long-term capital, we help our clients understand, structure, negotiate, and successfully close these transactions.

Mergers & Acquisitions
Our bankers develop and execute optimum strategies over the full M&A cycle, from identifying opportunities and working out the best way to initiate an investment, to extracting value through divestiture or recapitalization. Deal success begins with the right strategy and transaction goals, whether for an acquisition, merger, spin-off, or divestiture.

Ultimately, realizing financial and operational value through M&A transactions comes down to execution. The middle-market experts at Carl Marks Advisors have in-depth knowledge across industries, enabling them to provide senior-level advice and personalized attention to all transactions. Our long-standing relationships with a wide variety of companies and private equity investors ensure that we’ll find the best match to close a deal.
