Capital Alliance Corporation announces record $412M in energy-related closings through 3rd quarter

Capital Alliance Corporation, a leading Dallas-based mid-market investment banking firm, has announced closings in excess of $465M in aggregate value through the third quarter, largely driven by transactions in the oil and gas industry ($412M+). The number of closings, as well as the total transactional value, represents a new record for the firm.

Established in 1976 by dealmaking legend Ed Dawson, Capital Alliance has become one of the most productive mid-market M&A advisors in the fields of infrastructure construction and oil & gas services. The firm recently closed a landmark deal between Enerflow and National Oilwell Varco.

“Capital Alliance is having an outstanding year, primarily due to superior execution on the part of our team of dealmakers in the energy and technology sectors,“ said Ed Dawson. “Having closed nine transactions so far this year involving over $450 million in transaction value, the rest of the year looks equally bright. Our backlog of engagements is at an all-time high.”

Capital Alliance, in partnership with the law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski, will host the “World Energy in 2040” Conference on October 25, 2012, at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas, TX. Among the key topics will be the important role of emerging technology in expanding energy sources and energy conservation. Panelists from the industry and from M&A International Inc.’s Energy Industry Group will offer their views on the trends expected to drive future business consolidations and capital deployments.

“The World Energy Conference will offer industry executives and thought leaders insight into future onshore technologies and key milestones in the development of liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants; it will expound on the future role of nuclear and alternative technologies in our energy mix, balancing expansion and maintenance in our pipeline and plant infrastructure, and worldwide industry demographics shaping future demand and supply,” said Paul Puri, Senior Vice President and Principal of Capital Alliance. “The conference will highlight where some of the largest energy companies will deploy their massive capital expenditures over the next several decades.”
