The merger and acquisition industry has been very active in 2016. The latest M&A that has the industry buzzing is the $85 billion deal between AT&T and Time Warner. The $43 billion merger between China’s National Chemical Corporation and the Swiss company Syngenta AG is another merger that could impact the chemical industry in several ways if it gains regulatory approval. These giant mergers are just the tip of the iceberg, according to the CEO of Madison Street, Charles Botchway. Madison Street Capital, the Chicago-based merger and acquisition firm, is known as a leader in the mergers and acquisitions that fall into the $100 to $500 million category. Botchway founded Madison Street with partner Tony Marsala because the men saw an investment opportunity. That investment opportunity has grown over the years and Madison Street’s reputation for putting together companies that complement each other in several key areas has grown as well.
Madison Street’s recent nomination by the M&A Advisor as a finalist for the 15th annual M&A Advisor Awards confirms the company’s position in the industry, according to an article posted by benzinga.com. The activity in the M&A industry is unprecedented in 2016, according to some industry leaders because of the dismal corporate returns, and the need to streamline operations in several areas of the economy. The global economy is also playing a role in mergers, according to Mr. Botchway. Madison Street was nominated for the M&A Advisor Award because of the merger the company put together with Acuna and Associates S.A. and Dowco. Dowco has been a Madison Street client for several years. More and more emerging market deals are on the table in 2016 than in previous years, because more companies want an international presence especially in markets like Mexico and India.
Chief Operating Officer, Tony Marsala, has also been nominated for several awards over the last couple of years. His involvement in emerging market mergers and acquisitions, especially in the manufacturing, wholesale and retail industries has been an asset for the company. Karl D’Cunha, Madison Street’s senior managing director, has also been instrumental in putting more than 40 M&A deals together for Madison Street in 2016. That’s eight more deals than the company closed in 2015.
Winners of the 15th annual M&A Advisor Awards will be announced in New York City. Marsala and company plan to attend that event at the New York Athletic Club. The executives at Madison Street are honored by the recognition by the M&A Advisor, according to the benzina.com article. Madison Street is one of the top boutique investment firms in the industry. Madison Street is committed to offering clients their expertise in valuations, financial and advisory services and the company’s leadership in merger and acquisitions. Botchway and Marsala have built a solid investment business on the basic principles of integrity, honesty, leadership, and ethical behavior.
Even though Madison Street Capital’s reputation started in Chicago, the company has a client list that extends around the world.
