Online M&A site Launched

Looking for your next company to buy? eMergers.com has launched as a site offering free online access to acquisition and sale opportunities for mid-sized companies.

The operation "leverages the distribution power of the Internet to broadcast high quality, active opportunities" to a larger target audience than can be reached through traditional investment banking channels, while maintaining client confidentiality, the company says.

The Web site was developed by TM Capital Corp., a boutique New York investment bank, which has completed over 70 mergers, acquisitions and financing totaling over $4 billion in value.

Visitors can review M&A listings, review descriptions, learn transaction status, obtain confidentiality agreements and express interest while online.

The site currently features 12 sale candidates with values ranging from $15 million to $100 million and 7 acquisition mandates from public companies with market values ranging from $50 million to over $1 billion.

Although listings are primarily generated through TM Capital Corp., select transaction opportunities which meet the quality standards of eMergers.com are posted without cost by participating investment banks.

"While the Internet has been used to broaden distribution in markets as diverse as retailing, stock trading and IPOs, until now no firm has leveraged the Internet's exceptional reach to market high-quality M&A opportunities," said Michael S. Goldman, senior vice president of TM Capital.

"We believe the launch of eMergers.com will transform the M&A market and provide tremendous benefits to clients."
