Waller Capital has spent more than 30 years providing telecommunications, media, and technology companies and their stakeholders with independent, expert advice on a broad range of transactions and strategic alternatives. Our team begins by understanding all of our client’s goals and expectations and follows with the development of a detailed action plan. Senior bankers lead each step of the process, including transaction execution and negotiations. Waller Capital’s team has highly granular knowledge and significant experience with the following types of transactions:
Mergers & Acquisitions
Waller Capital’s primary focus is on executing mergers and acquisitions transactions. While the Firm has strong experience on both buy-side and sell-side M&A transactions, we specialize in representing the seller in exclusive sales and corporate divestitures. We strive to achieve our clients’ goals by leveraging our independent perspective, in-depth knowledge of the constantly evolving trends in TMT, and our deep, personal relationships with the most prominent companies and investors in the sector.
Our bankers offer decades of experience executing hundreds of M&A transactions and dealing with the complexities of M&A assignments across the TMT landscape. Our collective experience with individual companies and investors, our knowledge of specific markets, and our understanding of dynamic TMT operations make us uniquely suited to advise and execute M&A transactions. The Firm has a strong understanding of the regulatory challenges facing our clients (FCC, DOJ, SEC, local franchising authorities, and others) and is adept at incorporating these issues into our strategic thinking.
