Madison Street Capital Excels In Mergers And Acquisitions
When CEO Charles Botchway left his position as the Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of Houlihan Smith & Company, he didn’t realize how quickly Madison Street Capital would grow. The Chicago-based Madison Street Capital has carved a nice niche for itself in the merger and acquisition industry, but the company also specializes in corporate restructuring. Botchway is considered an expert when it comes to putting global deals together. Even though Madison Street is a U.S. based Company, the team at Madison Street travels around the world putting medium size companies together and forming one profitable corporation.
Madison Street Capital has offices in Europe, Africa, and Asia so the executive team under the direction of COO Anthony Marsala can process merger information quickly. Information and timing are critical in the merger and acquisition world. One of Marsala’s specialties is finding companies in other countries that are compatible with medium and small size America corporations. Once the merger is complete Madison Street helps it clients develop cost-cutting strategies as well as marketing concepts that can assist them during the transition. Some of Madison Street’s current clients are Bond Medial Group Inc., Central Iowa Energy LLC and Fiber Science Inc.
The recent announcement that Dean Foods was purchasing Friendly’s Ice Cream’s wholesale and retail operation is an example of the kind of mergers and acquisitions that Madison Street Capital likes to put together. The Dean Foods/ Friendly’s Ice Cream acquisition is a $155 million deal. In today’s merger and acquisition world, that’s not considered a big merger, but it is an important one for Dean Foods. The acquisition of Friendly’s Ice Cream will add approximately $0.06 per earning per share to the stockholders.
Charles Botchway and Anthony Marsala have developed an acquisition strategy that puts Madison Street Capital in a special league. Acquiring a company takes research, an incredible amount of planning, and an executive team that understands both the company being acquired and the firm that is doing the acquiring. Madison Street Capital’s team are specialists that make the transition from two companies to one as painless as possible.
