Why M/Cap Advisors?

Depth of Expertise
and Credibility

We offer a unique combination of middle market and large cap investment banking experience. Our extensive middle market transaction experience enables us to truly understand and optimally serve the needs of our private middle market clients. Simultaneously, our large cap investment banking experience adds to our clients’ credibility with transaction counterparties.


We have a long-proven track record of success in helping our clients achieve outcomes that exceed their expectations. We expertly guide our clients through the twists and turns of a transaction by applying our wide range of financial, marketing, strategic, and negotiation skills to run a structured and tightly managed professional process and aggressively negotiate the optimal price and terms for our clients.

Customized Solutions

We deliver broad investment banking experience across various industries, geographies, deal sizes, transaction structures and securities in the large cap and middle market investment banking arenas. As a result, we provide custom-tailored solutions to each transaction, offering fresh, innovative perspectives and best practices to realize our clients’ unique personal and business objectives.

Senior Level,
Best-in-Class Execution

We have a senior professional involved in every step of a transaction, combining our large cap investment bank experience with entrepreneurial responsiveness. We are fully engaged in all our assignments and passionate about providing best-in-class advisory services to achieve flawless execution for our clients.

Alleviate Stress
and Time Commitment

Executing an optimal transaction is very time intensive, requires significant expertise and often is stressful for owners that try to manage a deal themselves. We are highly sensitive to our clients’ needs and objectives. As financial advisor and trusted partner, we take on the brunt of the work and aggravation of a deal for our clients, allowing our clients to focus on running their business and achieving a better transaction outcome.

No Conflict
of Interest

We do not actively canvas strategic or private equity buyers for repeat business. Consequently, we aggressively represent our clients’ best interests in each transaction without the potential conflict of hoping for future business from buyers.

Featured Transaction

We helped the entrepreneurial founder of Alorica double the size of his business by advising Alorica on its acquisition of EGS and $1.1 billion in debt financing. We were uniquely positioned to advise Alorica, because of our deep understanding of middle market transactions and our ability to deal with sophisticated counterparties due to our large cap investment banking experience. After closing the transaction, we also assisted Alorica with various strategic initiatives to optimize the business, including the divestiture of non-core operations. The following are key highlights of the transaction:

  • Leading business process outsourcing providers of customer management solutions
  • The businesses generated aggregate revenues of approximately $2.3 billion at closing
  • The combined companies served over 600 clients, including leading Fortune 500 companies, and employed more than 91,000 people in 154 locations spanning 16 countries across 5 continents engaging customers in over 30 language
  • Credit Suisse, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Bank of the West, BNP Paribas and Wells Fargo provided $1.1 billion in financing commitments
