Chicago-Based Madison Street Capital Is Nominated For Another M&A Award

The corporate world is an ever changing capitalistic vehicle, and that vehicle is going through a major metamorphosis in 2016. The United States election process has reached a new low in integrity and ethical behavior. The corporate world is feeling the impact of the boldness and crassness of both candidates. The U.S. election process will forever be changed after the results of this election are known. The corporate world may be torn apart by the lack of support it receives from the government and the people.

In order to stay competitive, companies must join together to weather an economic storm that could turn into a financial hurricane.

There have been several mega-merger deals in 2016. Not all of those deals have been approved because they represent a breakdown in fair competition and consumer safety. But there is one merger and acquisition company that continues to put M&A deals together that help consumers and the employees that come together in those mergers. That company is Chicago-based Madison Street Capital.

Madison Street Capital is known as a boutique investment company that puts companies together that are in the $100 million to $500 million category. Madison Street Capital’s CEO, Charles Botchway told benzinga.com that his firm closed 32 merger and acquisition deals in 2015, and 2016 will be another good year for the company. Benzinga.com recently published an article about Madison Street Capital’s nomination as a finalist in the 15th annual M&A Advisor Awards. The M&A Advisor Awards are considered the pinnacle of achievement in the merger and acquisition industry.

The Madison Street Capital nomination is for an international merger between Acuna & Asociados S.A. and Dowco. Dowco has been a long time Madison Street Capital client. Senior Managing Director Karl D’Cunha is responsible for putting the transaction together, according to the Benzinga.com article. That merger was actually in the under $100 million category.

CEO Charles Botchway and COO Anthony Marsala have been receiving awards for their outstanding work in the financial industry for the last four years. Marsala has been in the news for putting together emerging market merger and acquisitions, and he has received industry recognition for his achievements in that market. Mr. Marsala thinks more companies in India and the United Kingdom will merge because India’s GDP continues to outpace other countries, and the UK needs positive partners to weather the Brexit situation. But Marsala and his team are also working with other Mexican companies that want to have a presence in the United States and Europe. Madison Street Capital’s executive team is set to start 2017 with M&A deals that will help companies get more exposure around the globe.

When The Smoke Clears And The Awards Are Given

There’s a time for everything under the sun. That includes a time in the month of November when people are remembered. Roughly every week of November celebrates achievements of the recent year. The celebration we bring to attention today is for the financial world. You might have seen it on TV.

The reality is that investing is a large part of economic expansion, and there are a number of great people involved in that progress. These people also need to be recognized. But the personal achievements of financial professionals are not all we should put on “center stage.”

The long list of achievements made in finance are often done by firms and agencies also. These groups and banks set the tone for each generation. Though citizens of the world, who are not employed in finance, find many investing groups to be scandalous, money is often far from that observation.

There’s a great deal of order and progression that earning wages and improving investments provide to people of all walks of life. There’s no shortage in the improvements that better earnings can make to a person’s life. What we’ll acknowledge in this month are contributions in the professional world of finance.

This includes the performance of individuals, agencies and even governing bodies within the international market. And among all of these, there’s one name that stands out. Madison Street Capital is that name. This investment banking firm has grown strongly in the financial world and from its headquarters in New York City.

The firm currently holds two nominations for 2016 awards. Professionals in finance aren’t surprised. The agency feels honored to appear as a nominee again. For this year’s 2016 15th Annual M&A Advisor Awards, the New York Athletic Club will be the hosting venue. The date is set for November, 9, 2016.

This Wednesday spectacular will resolve Madison Street Capital’s nominations. The two nominated awards for the agency are the International and Industrial Deal of the Year award and the Boutique Investment Banking Firm of the Year award. For years, the Madison agency has excelled in banking on an international front.

Part of its reputation is grounded in great financial advice, mergers and acquisitions; financial advisory services, valuation, leadership roles and financial opinions. The firm is often recognized for its ability to work in all time zones and without delay. It’s the work ethic behind Madison Capital the enables it to excel.

The agency itself is excited about recent news and looks forward to taking home more recognition from the November, 9, 2016 event ahead.
