“When we decided we needed more capital to continue growing our business, we met with multiple advisors and it wasn’t until I met with Brian Moloney at Silvergrove that I really felt comfortable due to his knowledge of private equity. Meeting Brian at Silvergrove made my decision very easy. He guided us through a complex process smoothly and achieved a very successful outcome! We engaged Silvergrove a few years later to represent our management team in a much larger private equity deal and Brian put my team at ease with his knowledge throughout another successful process.”

-Matt Corr, CEO, AmSpec

Small and Mid-Cap Public Companies

Small and mid-cap public companies are oftentimes overlooked and underserved by large investment banks. At Silvergrove, we provide these companies with the senior level attention and customized service they need to execute successful M&A strategies. Public companies have unique regulatory, ownership, tax, financing and management issues, and are challenged to meet high shareholder expectations for growth and value creation. Increasingly, these companies are pursuing acquisitions as well as organic growth to remain competitive. Well executed acquisitions can help small and mid-cap public companies achieve scale, expand geographic reach, and diversify product portfolios and customer bases. We understand that the stakes are high for public companies in these transactions, and we work closely with our clients to ensure acquisition opportunities are successfully identified, negotiated and executed to maximize shareholder value. We also represent small and mid-cap public companies in divesting non-core businesses, allowing them to remain focused on businesses where they have differentiated core competencies and sustainable competitive advantages.
