A broad range
Vercor is a middle-market investment bank that works with
companies with revenue from $10 million to $100 million. The
firm is headquartered in Atlanta but boasts a total of 17 offices
domestically and internationally, including New York, Chicago,
Nashville, Phoenix, Kansas City, Houston, Sacramento and Cleveland
in the United States, and in Toronto, the Netherlands and
Switzerland worldwide. Vercor has facilitated more than $1
billion in transactions since its inception in 2000.
The company serves its clients through five main departments:
business sale, investment banking, management buyout, mergers and
acquisitions (M&A), and private equity recapitalization.
In its business sale unit, Vercor uses its consultants to find a
potential buyer for firms both inside and outside their
industry. In its investment banking division, the firm
provides services, such as debt and equity financing, capital
formation, business valuation and fairness opinions. Vercor's
management buyout unit helps management teams looking to acquire
all or part of companies. Meanwhile, its mergers and
acquisitions unit helps clients create a plan for their
transaction. Finally, in its private equity recapitalization
department, Vercor works with owners of businesses who are looking
to sell part of their company but retain some ownership.
Although the firm doesn't typically release the dollar amounts of
deals on which it works, it has advised on a number of high-profile
transactions, including acquisitions by Riverside Partners,
PeopleLink Staffing, eAttorney, Sports and Entertainment Direct,
and Loctronics, Inc. Its success can be gleaned from how fast
it is growing, taking the top spot in the middle-market investment
bank sector with 13 offices worldwide.
