About Mosaic Capital LLC
Two for the price of one
Mosaic Capital LLC, which advises middle-market companies (in Mosaic’s case, companies who have anywhere from $10 million to $500 million in annual sales) is split into two units: Mosaic Capital Securities LLC and Mosaic Capital, Inc. The former assists companies with privately placing debt and equity securities and the latter works on the firm’s real estate transactions. In total, the firm has worked on more than $3 billion in transactions.
Its acceptance into the International Network of Merger and Acquisition Partners (IMAP) in 2003 helped enlarge the firm’s international footprint to include 20 countries. Membership in the group gives Mosaic access to buyers who are potential merger candidates. Mosaic works to expand its knowledge of different industries around the world through the group, which is a truly global one. In 2008, IMAP was ranked No. 5 in worldwide middle-market deals, working 270 deals, according to Thomson Reuters.
What they offer
Under Mosaic’s mergers and acquisitions department, the firm works to cultivate ideas for both sides of the coin, companies that wish to grow and those who are looking to sell off their business. To this end, Mosaic finds targets and works with businesses throughout the duration of the transaction. Specifically, Mosaic’s mergers and acquisitions group works on sell side representation, partner buyouts, succession planning and corporate partnering.
The firm’s valuation services group appraises businesses in addition to valuing assets (such as for estate planning purposes). Through the department, Mosaic also offers fairness opinions and assistance in litigation-related issues. Mosaic’s financial advisory services division is perhaps the firm’s most expansive unit. The group helps implement business strategy, negotiates sales, evaluates profitability and helps businesses find financing sources if necessary. Under this unit, Mosaic also assists clients in exit planning and financial restructuring. Finally, the firm’s financing group helps with private placements of equity, mezzanine and debt capital to fund deals and development. Also, real estate financing is supplied for companies’ purchasing and overall expansion.
Variety is the spice of advising
The firm is continually involved with advising transactions within a variety of sectors. Mosaic touts its past deals in areas such as media and entertainment, technology, manufacturing, distribution and retail, business and consumer services, medical technology and health care. Though it doesn’t typically release figures of deals on which it has worked, the firm has advised on transactions for businesses ranging from theme parks and movie studios to manufacturers of fine jewelry, and even poultry companies.
