M&A International rebrands, restructures as Oaklins

DALLAS, Oct. 10, 2016 – Members of M&A International (MAI), including Dallas-based Capital Alliance Corp., have rebranded MAI as Oaklins and created a new international structure to advise middle-market companies around the globe in mergers and acquisitions.

In place since 1985 under its former brand, Oaklins is a fully integrated independent global M&A advisory firm with expertise across 14 sectors and with 60 offices in major financial centers around the world.

Through the new international structure, Oaklins will advise private shareholders, financial investors and corporate clients on larger and more complex deals with new IT systems that will provide seamless global cooperation and the sharing of sector expertise, market intelligence and valuation trends.

“Under the new Oaklins structure and name, our firm and our colleagues worldwide have taken an important step to strengthen an already formidable global presence,” said Bryan Livingston, managing partner and CEO of Dallas-based Capital Alliance Corp. (cadallas.com). “With Oaklins we’ve enhanced our ability to assist clients in accessing buyers and sellers around the world.”

Established in 1976, Capital Alliance Corp. became a founding member of what is now Oaklins in 1985. Through its connections to Oaklins, CAC has counseled clients on transactions in Canada, Mexico, Europe and the United Kingdom, as well as in the U.S.
