The people at Madison Street Capital are more than excited to hear that their company is one of the 15 finalists for the 15th Annual M&A Advisor Awards. Madison Street Capital never expected these types of accolades. The goal of the company, when it was founded in 2005, was simply to provide the middle market with a viable investment banking option. It did not occur to the people running the company that this investment banking firm would rise to be one of the most coveted and internationally recognized financial entities around the world.
Madison Street Capital now has offices in Africa and Asia, just to name a few. It has been instrumental in mergers and investments all around the world. The company has helped national transactions and transactions that took place across borders. One of the reasons why Madison Street Capital earned a nomination for this prestigious award ceremony was due to the company’s contributions to the middle market investment industry.
The investment firm understood that many business owners have trouble finding a company that offered a plethora of services. Business owners need a firm that stands out in a big way that inspires confidence. This is one of the reasons why this particular firm concentrated on providing service that others would talk about. Madison Street Capital understood that a good reputation and favorable history were the key to ensuring the company’s future. One could say that the company invested first in itself before reaching higher on the ladder of success.
Benzinga reports that the award is not meant to be announced until the 15th Annual M&A Advisor Awards Gala. This is going to be taking place on Wed., Nov. 9 at the New York Athletic Club. It should be noted that the award that Madison Street Capital has been nominated for could be seen as an achievement, even without winning the reward. The reason this investment banking firm feels like a winner is due to the criteria that has to be met for a company to even qualify for the award. The award committee looks meticulously at all financial achievements of a possible nominee.
For one, a spotlight is placed on deal making. This was something that Madison Street Capital excelled at as it was nominated for the International and Industrials Deal of the Year under $100MM. The reason that the company was recognized was because it played an important role in the acquisition of Acuna & Asociados S.A. The deal required a lot of man power and many endless nights, but it was worth it. Those involved in the deal already felt like winners when they closed this deal, but an award should definitely lift the team’s spirit. It is only a matter of time before the winner is announced, and the anticipation levels are probably quite high.
