Morgan Joseph TriArtisan’s International Group is focused on providing financing and advisory services to middle-market companies worldwide. We have been retained by and/or effected transactions for companies based in mainland China, Hong Kong, the U.K., France, Germany, South Africa and Israel. These transactions include equity and debt financings, and buy-side and sell-side M&A advisory across a variety of industries, including industrials, alternative energy, consumer products, media, financial services, healthcare, gaming and telecommunications.
Our firm is a member of IMAP, an exclusive organization of almost 40 M&A advisory firms with offices in over 30 countries. As a member of IMAP, we are able to leverage global relationships in Latin America, Europe and Asia to provide cross-border M&A solutions for our clients facilitating contact with potential international buyers or targets. In 2012, IMAP ranked 3rd in the world for M&A transactions, up to $500 million in transaction value in the Thomson Reuters league tables.
Morgan Joseph TriArtisan's full service platform and middle-market focus make us uniquely well-suited to serve mid-sized Chinese companies. Chinese middle-market companies have limited access to growth capital in China and continue to explore raising capital in foreign markets. We have assisted China-based companies in raising capital through the U.S. private and public markets and SPAC mergers. In addition, an increasing number of Chinese companies are seeking acquisitions of U.S.-based companies to penetrate new markets and acquire Western brands. We have been highly active in China over the past several years, having closed over $1.1 billion in 16 transactions for China-based companies.
