Unique Not-for-Profit Corporation Serves Mergers and Acquisitions Professionals across Quebec and Ontario
MONTREAL, Sept. 2, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - M&A Club, a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to serving the Canadian mergers and acquisitions (M&A) community, today announced that it has directly facilitated more than $300 million in closed transactions. Additionally, M&A Club has now opened a chapter in Toronto.
M&A Club comprises 12 chapters, representing approximately 500 members. The Club's mission is to assist M&A professionals and their intermediaries in mid-market transactions and financings. M&A Club holds regular meetings at its chapters, where members are free to discuss deals in strict confidence. The Club also hosts two all-day M&A Forums in Montreal and Quebec City. Members include professionals in corporate finance, M&A, valuation, private equity, venture capital, banking, R&D tax credits, accounting and law. Most members propose buy/sell financings of mid-size enterprises, valued between $2 million and $30 million.
"Having polled our members, we are proud to announce that we have directly facilitated more than $300 million in transactions," says Brahm Elkin, Founder and President, M&A Club. "Since starting in Montreal in 2009, we have grown extensively across Quebec. Now, we have two chapters in Ontario. Our mission is simple – we provide tailor-made opportunities for M&A professionals to discuss their deals. We believe that this type of highly-qualified networking is very effective but has not been widely available – until now. Having played a pivotal role in deals worth $300 million leads us to believe that we are on the right track. We look forward to expanding our presence in Ontario and moving further west to create a truly national organization."
"M&A Club has provided the networking platform for our group to close transactions of over $40 million," continues Jacques Foisy, President and Managing Partner, Novacap Industries. "From our perspective, it is an excellent organization that provides deal-making opportunities. The benefits of our membership have been truly remarkable. We look forward to expanding our role within the Montreal chapter of M&A Club and are very pleased to see the organization's expansion into Ontario."
