The professionals at JKC have personal knowledge of the challenges faced by company management when undertaking a capital event and practical process experience based on the completion of over 200 successful capital events as owners, operators, investors, buyers, sellers and investment bankers. JKC services include mergers and acquisitions advisory, debt and equity capital formation and strategic financial services to companies in a variety of industries. Typical transaction sizes range from $10 million to $300 million in total consideration. As an adjunct service to our fundamental investment banking practice, JKC acts as a conduit for direct investments to our network of institutions, family offices and high net worth individuals who are reducing their allocations into private equity and seeking to make direct investments through relationships such as that which they have with our firm. In many cases, this is the preferred outcome for middle-market companies that come to us to raise capital for them.
