Our Difference

Our Managing Directors have over 65 years of combined investment banking experience with the firm, which is unique in our industry.

To learn more about Matrix, please download our comprehensive corporate brochure or for a quick view, please download our one page summary.

Extensive Experience
Most of our transactions are highly complex, requiring not only industry knowledge, but a deep understanding of alternative structures, financing markets and tax implications that specifically relate to our clients. Matrix has the merger & acquisition expertise and knowledge to provide the best possible advice in complicated situations.

Senior Level Attention
We handle each transaction with a “hands-on” approach. Our deal teams are comprised of experienced investment bankers, including senior level Managing Directors, who, on a daily basis, stay involved with every aspect of the transaction. We are deeply committed to our clients and provide them with a confidential and intensive approach to detail and professionalism that reaches far beyond their expectations.

High Level of Confidentiality
Given that our roots hail from representation of private companies, we consider absolute confidentiality of paramount importance. We understand that our clients are extremely sensitive to rumors and potential dissemination of their corporate information getting out to the public, which can cause business disruption, turmoil among employees, or give competitors an edge. At Matrix we do not over expose your company. We take the time to research which parties would have a sincere interest in the opportunity and work with you as a team to compile a carefully selected target list of investors, lenders, or buyers.

Independence – Objectivity
Matrix is an independent financial advisor. We have no conflicts of interest with a research department, sales and trading desk or other division or department.

Proprietary Resources
Matrix maintains an in-house proprietary database of resources, including potential investors and capital providers that are focused on your specific type and size transaction. Our customized in-house database consists of more than 2,000 private equity groups, strategic acquirers, senior and mezzanine lenders, as well as other institutional investors. These valuable resources are the result of years of cultivating strong relationships and are a vital part of the process.

National and Global Reach
We currently maintain close relationships with buyers, sellers and investors, as well as other transaction professionals throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia and South America. This allows us to tap into a vast pool of resources. We make these same resources available to our clients to provide unique opportunities on a local, regional, national and international basis.

We have twenty investment banking professionals located throughout the U.S. in Richmond, VA, Baltimore, MD, Chicago, IL and Dallas, TX.

What our Clients Are saying

  • “After considerable research, we settled on Matrix to represent us and feel we could not have made a better selection. They did a great job of keeping the process moving in a positive direction and we were extremely pleased with the outcome.”

    James Barnwell, President
    Huffman Oil Company
  • Matrix has helped Best Oil management review its strategic options since 2008. When the decision was made to sell we chose Matrix for their extensive industry expertise and professionalism. The Matrix team did a great job of leading the sales process and maximizing the value of the Little Store division, the wholesale supply operations, and the transportation division. They helped guide Best Oil management through the sale process, worked with Best Oil’s legal counsel to negotiate the transaction and helped manage the due diligence and closing process. We greatly appreciate the job the Matrix team did.

    John McKinney, President
