In its Mergers and Acquisition ("M&A") practice, Gryphon usually represents sellers of private companies on a transaction fee basis. By special arrangement, Gryphon occasionally makes its M&A services available to financially qualified buyers on a retainer fee basis.
Gryphon's M&A activity includes representation of companies in a wide variety of industries. Illustrative recent clients have included companies in such widely disparate industries as biotechnology, advanced materials, exercise equipment and ceramic packaging.
In both its M&A and Corporate Finance practices, Gryphon sometimes represents foreign buyers who have become active players in the American marketplace as the trend toward corporate restructuring accelerates. For instance, Gryphon successfully concluded the acquisition of an American manufacturer of electronic components packaging by a major European conglomerate based in France.
In its MBO/LBO Advisory services practice, Gryphon provides assistance in structuring and arranging buyout transactions of both public and private companies. Recent assignments have included a NYSE manufacturer of industrial equipment, a NASDAQ entertainment industry company, and a privately-held advanced materials company.
