Chicago Investment Bank Provides Sell-Side Business Advisory Services for Entrepreneurial Mergers & Acquisitions

January 31, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Middle market merger and acquisition provider, Deal Capital, provides expert investment banking advisory services for entrepreneurs and long-standing business owners. Pent-up supply in the middle market is having many bullish and optimistic about the coming year. Investment bankers and business brokers alike see large potential in the coming months and years as business owners seek will seek to divest ownership of some of the nation's legacy businesses. As the pent-up supply reaches the market, Deal Capital's Chicago investment banking office aims to work directly with Chicago business owners on assessing, valuing and selling their companies.

The Great Recession had several deleterious effects on potential sell-side M&A. First, it brought valuations back into check. "We had businesses on the market which dropped overnight in value and have not returned since," says Troy Jenkins Deal Capital Marketing Manager. "Sadly, we may not see the values come back anytime soon. We have seen many of the owners grow four years older waiting for an eventual retirement. That bodes well for supply of middle market companies, but unfortunately it has forced business owners to reassess their business values with what the market will bear. It has taken a few years, but we're seeing values increase and internal adjustments made by management and investors."

Secondly, some businesses never recovered, but saw major losses since the Great Recession. "We had business owners turn down very large valuations on construction companies in 2005 and 2006, thinking that the market was going to go into infinity and beyond," says Jenkins. "For some in the construction industry, the opposite happened and unfortunately, they never recovered and probably never will."
