An independent investment bank focused on middle market transactions.
Scott-Macon Group, Inc. is one of the oldest independent investment banks in the United States focused on middle market transactions in the range of $10 million to $500 million. Founded in 1973 by Alfred L. Scott, the firm is comprised of senior professionals who have had extensive transaction experience in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity financing, valuations and fairness opinions and general corporate financial consulting.
In business for over 50 years, Scott-Macon has been retained to undertake a diverse range of domestic and international corporate finance assignments for both public and privately-held corporations. Whether it involves working closely with a Fortune 500 company or private equity firm in an acquisition or divestiture program, or having sole responsibility for the purchase or sale of a family-owned corporation, Scott-Macon professionals possess the experience and commitment necessary to assist a client in meeting its objectives.
Our Middle Market Investment Banking Philosophy
Scott-Macon has remained unique in its commitment to provide clients with senior level advisors who have had significant investment banking experience as well as, in many cases, direct operating experience. The firm’s philosophy of providing advice, ideas and solutions tempered by the perspective of actual operating experience has benefited clients over the firm’s long history.
Another cornerstone of Scott-Macon’s operating philosophy is a client-oriented approach to investment banking services, in contrast to today’s transaction-oriented environment. Scott-Macon professionals strive to understand the unique aspects of each client’s operations and will not hesitate to counsel against a transaction if it does not appear to be in the long-term best interests of a client. The firm’s ownership by its own management team enables and encourages a truly unbiased and independent perspective; free from the inherent conflicts and cross-selling that can occur when advisory services are integrated into broader financial services platforms incorporating banking, securities or accounting. The success of Scott-Macon’s client-oriented approach has been validated over the firm’s history by the high percentage of repeat engagements which the firm has experienced from its clients.
