M&A Advisory

Marks Baughan M&A advisory services include:
  • Public and private purchase or sale transactions
  • Corporate divestitures
  • Fairness opinions and valuations
  • Restructuring
We are selective in taking on assignments, insuring that we can add value for our clients through the dedicated application of our resources before accepting an engagement. With our analytic and operational background, we go much further than a typical investment bank to understand the operations and financial model of our clients in the preparatory phase of an engagement so that we can present their story most effectively to potential partners. As a result, we have a stellar record of success in just a short period of operation.

Capital Raising

Marks Baughan works with growth companies to raise equity or debt to finance growth, shareholder liquidity, acquisitions, or management buy-outs. We provide an end-to-end capital advisory solution that begins with an in-depth analysis of our client's current operations, financial condition, and cash flow that leads to a targeted recommendation regarding the amount and type of capital to be raised. Our extensive relationships with private equity funds and venture capital firms as well as strategic partners, banks, and hedge funds gives us the ability to move quickly to secure the financing desired.

We assist clients looking to raise through:
  • Private placements of equity or debt
  • PIPES (Private Investments in Public Equities)
  • Subordinated debt or other mezzanine financing
  • Bank or senior debt or credit facilities

We always put our client ahead of the transaction



Our good reputation is our most valuable asset


We look forward to hearing from you.
