DAK Announces a Transformation – Reflecting Evolution of The Middle Market

Rochelle Park, NJ – The DAK Group, a leading investment bank specializing in middle-market mergers and acquisitions worldwide, is pleased to unveil a new Brand Identity Campaign. This initiative reflects the company’s response to the evolving needs of business owners in the middle market as they navigate the complexities of growth and exit strategies. DAK’s new look and feel represents a commitment to its bold role and purpose in maximizing and protecting business value for entrepreneurs and stakeholders.

DAK’s new brand identity introduces a fresh aesthetic with vibrant colors, a dynamic logo, and a succinct tagline “Mid-Market, Maximized” all rooted in DAK’s tradition of providing highly customized service throughout every engagement.

The landscape of middle-market business ownership has transformed significantly over the last decade. DAK’s inception saw owners either passing the business to family or engaging in a transactional exit (sale). Today, however, a paradigm shift is evident as owners increasingly look at new options including acquisitions, joint ventures, sale of all or part of the business while still maintaining some control. DAK, at the forefront of this evolution, guides owners through previously unexplored options that align with their aspirations and financial goals.

Alan Scharfstein, DAK’s Founder and CEO explains “Our business has transformed, from being mostly transactional, to now, where we build enduring relationships with clients across various stages of their business life cycle. We are focused on helping them build value in their company as it grows and maximizing that value upon exit”.

Joan McGeough, DAK’s Chief Marketing Officer, adds, “While our business has evolved significantly, our visual identity has not kept pace. The rebranding marks a strategic evolution, aligning our image with our commitment to guiding owners in building value across their business lifecycle.”

The new logo and deep purple and gold color scheme makes a bold visual statement, reinforcing DAK’s commitment to optimizing value in every engagement. The unveiling of the new tagline, “The Mid-Market, Maximized,” underscores the firm’s dedication to excellence for every client. Simultaneously, DAK has launched a new website seamlessly integrating the new brand, while enhancing the user experience.

In a testament to its industry leadership, DAK has recently been awarded the prestigious title of #1 Investment Bank in New Jersey.

VCI – Emergency Vehicle Specialists recapitalized by Tightrope Capital & NewSpring Capital

VCI is the preeminent full lifecycle sales and service provider of emergency ambulance solutions to first aid squads, EMS organizations, fire departments, hospital organizations, municipalities, and private medical transport companies in the Mid-Atlantic Region. VCI was recapitalized by private equity firms Tightrope Capital Partners and NewSpring Capital.

DAK led a competitive, sell-side process for VCI, generating multiple offers from a wide range of strategic buyers and financial sponsors. By positioning the combination of VCI’s market leadership position, comprehensive services offering, strong manufacturer relationships, and robust backlog, DAK achieved an outstanding outcome for the company’s shareholders.

The acquisition provides the shareholders of VCI an opportunity to accelerate its growth strategy by expanding its core ambulance business, building out the value-added segments of conversions and remounts, implementing operational improvements, and pursuing acquisitions with the help of its new partners. Tightrope and NewSpring have an opportunity to leverage VCI’s strong management team and operating platform to build a multi-regional player in emergency ambulance solutions.
