About JPS Capital Corporation

Straight outta Dayton

JPS Capital Corporation, or JPS, headquartered in Dayton, Ohio, is a boutique investment banking company that hones in on cornering transactions in the middle market.  The firm considers its industry expertise to be fairly broad-based, encompassing everything from technology and financial and business services to biotechnology and health care.  When it comes to selloffs, the firm markets itself as "primarily performance-based" but does still charge fees and retainers (although JPS notes that its fees are typically "substantially below Wall Street firms").  The firm works on deals in its growth capital, mergers and acquisitions, and strategic alliances/collaboration departments.  JPS also concentrates its efforts on middle market private companies with revenue between $10 million and $500 million.

Through the years

JPS established its investment banking services in 1994 and, to this day, still represents hundreds of public and private companies.  Its fundamental objectives, it says, are to "professionally represent business owners in maximizing the value of the companies they have worked so hard to build" and to "provide an unparalleled acquisition search program to large public or private companies completing strategic acquisitions."

The big three

Within its mergers and acquisitions department, the firm works on deals that encompass company sales and acquisition programs.  The firm also has an international division within its mergers and acquisitions unit that focuses on global companies who are looking to enter the U.S. market through either acquisition or partnerships.

The firm's growth capital department has subdivisions focusing on private equity capital for private companies as well as venture capital.  Under the venture capital division, new businesses are advised by JPS regarding ways they can raise capital in order to meet their initial start-up goals.

JPS's strategic alliances/collaboration branch encompasses its biotechnology investment services and healthcare investment services sectors, which both seek out to take advantage of industry trends through mergers, acquisitions, strategic partnerships and procuring capital.
