Strategic Partner Transactions

The current Merger and Acquisition market has created exciting opportunities for closely held businesses to attract capital, form strategic alliances or obtain liquidity at historically high valuations. Below is a summary of the strategic sale we accomplished on behalf of the shareholders of Advanced Recycling, which we thought would be of interest to you.
Strategic Valuations in Traditional Industries:
While high flying technology companies often garner the headlines, it is the traditional and basic industry companies that produce most of the country’s gross domestic product. Advanced Recycling, a second generation, New England-based, ferrous and non-ferrous recycling company is a prime example. The company prospered to the point that it had secured a profitable niche in a strategic geographical region, thus making it very attractive to large, publicly traded, domestic and foreign prospective acquirers. de Visscher & Co. conducted a privately negotiated merger/sale assignment that allowed the shareholders to liquefy the value that they had built up in the company at a strategic valuation. In addition to putting the Company and the employees in the hands of a well-respected and influential industry participant, the Principal’s remain active in a broad management role with the acquirer. de Visscher & Co. offers the expertise and the contact base with strategic and financial acquirers and investors to enable its clients to realize their shareholder value creation goals.
