Alden’s investment banking team is growing and includes extensive transaction experience across a wide array of industries.
We serve the needs of both privately-held and publicly-traded companies with tailored solutions in advisory, mergers and acquisitions, and capital raising services. Our core competencies include the regulatory, compliance, and legal side of investment banking services and transactions. We strive to help Alden’s investment banking representatives and their clients analyze, execute, and record items in full compliance with SEC and FINRA regulations. Alden’s network includes over 3,000 individual clients and 800 corporate clients. Our 100+ representatives are a great source of opportunities and deal flow for our investment banking team.
Investment Banking Platform Services
We leverage the full resources of the Alden Investment Group which consists of three registered investment advisors and our broker/dealer entity.
Alden’s broker/dealer has multiple investment banking approvals and a clearing agreement with Raymond James.
Our hybrid-broker/dealer model allows us to fully support our investment banking representatives who may also have affiliations with RIAs, family-offices, law firms and private equity/venture capital firms that need to offer investment banking services to their clients but do not have their own broker/dealer entity.
We focus on the regulatory, legal and compliance needs while also providing our representatives with our expertise, lead network, and resources to achieve successes with our clients and transactions.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Alden assists clients in nearly all financial aspects of strategic transactions—mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures. The consolidation of businesses across many different industries is accelerating as acquisitions become more and more popular among both public and middle market companies. These strategic transactions, however, are often complex and extremely time consuming. Alden’s start to finish participation helps clients through these dynamic and complex transactional processes:
- Strategy Development
- Target Identification
- Institution Analyses
- Market Research/Anti-Competitive Analyses
- Transaction Initiation
- Due Diligence Services/Integration
- Transition Structure and Negotiation
- Regulator Approval Process
- Fairness Opinions
Our particular strength is private firm transactions in the mergers and acquisitions space, from emerging market companies through larger middle market firms.
In the area of capital raising, Alden believes in “building-block offerings” that finance the growth of our clients over time through a series of well-timed, well-structured capital financings.
We believe stock distribution should be well-balanced, involving both individual and institutional capital where appropriate.
Alden directly manages nearly $1 billion in assets and our hybrid teams manage a further $5+ billion in assets. Our investment bankers have participated in capital raising efforts that ranged in size from $5 million to more than $100 million.
Alden’s ability to execute smaller financings, (between $5 million to $50 million), are a good fit for our middle market and community banking clients.
