martinwolf Celebrates 24 Years

Dear Clients, Partners, and Friends of martinwolf M&A Advisors,
In 1997, gas was $1.22 a gallon in the US, Great Britain handed Hong Kong back to China, and the Dow was at less than 8,000. For me, on this date in 1997 I founded this firm.
Almost a quarter century later — and after 180+ transactions, $5B in transaction value and 20+ countries, I’m excited to report 2021 is already shaping up to be one of the most consequential years of all for our organization.
In our annual letter released on Dec. 31, I suggested that the technology space and the broader economy were headed toward a year of accelerated growth with significant M&A.
It’s a great time to be in our industry. And on a more personal note, we’re already off to a strong start — so far this year we’ve announced three successfully closed transactions.
One final point: we’ve been doing this so long now we’ve been fortunate enough to have successful repeat engagements. Thanks to all of our clients who have made our success possible, and to all of our associates over the past 24 years who committed their time and experience to making it possible.
Expect to see more big news from us shortly. I can’t wait to share with you what we have planned.
To 24 Years!
Sincerely,
Marty's Signature
