Madison Street Capital: Leading By ExampleFebruary 24, 2016 - Author: steph - No Comments
Madison Street Capital is an investment banking firm that is leading the market, especially in mergers and acquisitions. One of the reasons for its success is the leadership that it has. One of the leaders at the firm is Reginald McGaugh. He is a Managing Director at Madison Street Capital. McGaugh started out his career by graduating with a degree in finance from the University of Nebraska and then getting a Masters in Business from Florida A&M University. Since then he has had years of experience in the healthcare sector. He has worked with everyone from diagnostic imaging firms and biotechnology firms to healthcare medical device firms and pharmaceutical firms. All of this experience has enabled him to lead the Global Healthcare Markets Group at the firm.
The firm proves itself time and time again, especially with creating transactions between companies like Naveos and Tamroc Partners, Vapor Hub International Inc and Typenex Co-Investment, LLC, FabTrol Systems Inc and Aveva Group, and Information Sciences Consulting Inc and Action Capital Corporation. Madison Street Capital has the ability to do this because the investors it has connections with are from a diverse background. The firm works with investors who are in corporations, endowments, financial institutions, foundations, money managers, unions, mutual funds, state governments, local governments and pension funds. And especially when it comes to pension funds, the firm has deep pools of capital due to those relationships.
Madison Street Capital had a strong year in 2015, according to the overview that they publish. They managed to announce or close 42 years over the course of the year. In 2014, this number was only 32. One of the big reasons for such a good year was the wave of transactions that came in during the fourth quarter. This created momentum and the firm expects that momentum to grow and produce even bigger numbers for 2016.
The firm’s overview was covered in the news by both pr.com and HedgeWeek. Both news outlets gave a brief summary of the overview. In the summary they stated how the overview was very optimistic about the hedge fund industry. They did admit that the year had not been a good one for all hedge funds. However, this was not due to there not being big assets on the market. The reason so many hedge funds struggled was because they were not using a good strategy. The Senior Managing Director at Madison Street Capital said that the public will see a change in the coming years. He said that more alternative structures will be used in order to create higher returns and in order to please both the buyer and the seller.
