P&M Corporate Finance (PMCF) is pleased to announce the combination of Denver-based EKS&H Capital Advisors (EKSHCA) and PMCF. Bringing together these two premier middle market investment banking firms creates a powerful national platform to better serve clients and expand industry coverage. The firms share similar cultures and both have holistic approaches to assisting clients with the planning and execution phases of sale, merger, acquisition, and capital raise transactions. Both firms also provide heavy senior level involvement in transactions and strive to be the client’s highly trusted M&A advisor.
PMCF provides geographic coverage of the United States from its offices in Chicago and Detroit and has completed hundreds of transactions throughout the country, but has been less active in the Western United States. EKSHCA brings a strong presence in the Rocky Mountain region and the Western United States with an office in Denver, Colorado and clients and contacts across the West. Following the combination, both firms will have better geographic coverage of the United States and globally through PMCF’s ownership and leadership in Corporate Finance International (CFI).
PMCF has dedicated advisory teams and deep industry expertise in plastics, packaging, aerospace & defense, industrial distribution, automotive, medical technology, consumer, retail and business & technology services. EKSHCA’s investment banking team has significant expertise in technology, food and beverage, construction and manufacturing. Combined, the two firms will have broader and deeper industry coverage that will both strengthen and complement each firm’s current capabilities.
“We are excited to combine with EKS&H Capital Advisors, augmenting our deal expertise, national presence, and industry capabilities,” explains PMCF President Phil Gilbert. “We share a similar client philosophy and deal approach – one that focuses on the client at every stage. We complement each other and are thrilled about the ability to better serve our clients and to reach broader audiences. Most importantly, we’re gaining colleagues who share our values and culture.”
“We look forward to this exciting new chapter that combining with PMCF means for not only us, but for our clients. We share core tenets: laser-like focused client service, deep industry expertise and expert transaction capabilities,” said EKSHCA’s President Adams Price. “This combination is an example of where the whole is worth more than the sum of its parts as it advances our collective capabilities to serve a broader geographic audience across more industries and our greater combined M&A expertise will benefit our clients.”
The transaction coincides with the announcement by Plante Moran, one of the nation’s largest accounting, tax and consulting firms of their combination with EKS&H, the largest CPA firm based in Denver and the Rocky Mountain region. PMCF and EKS&H Capital Advisors are affiliate entities of Plante Moran and EKS&H, respectively. The PMCF and EKSHCA transaction is slated to close October 1, 2018.
