DAK Launches The New Jersey M&A Trends Report – “Jersey Strong” Prevails

Rochelle Park, NJ – DAK, a leading investment bank specializing in middle-market mergers, acquisitions and strategic advisory is pleased to announce the inaugural publication of The New Jersey M&A Trends Report.

The analysis, spearheaded by Ari Fuchs and Josh Andermarch, is the first of its kind and our findings reveal that the “Jersey Strong” mantra is well applied to NJ M&A. Despite Wall Street bemoaning a decline in merger and acquisition activity, the Garden State flourished in 2022 – dipping just a tad below the record-breaking year before.

The New Jersey M&A Trends Report identifies a focused interest in acquiring and selling NJ Companies that has progressively increased over the last 10-years peaking in 2021 with a volume that is close to double the number of transactions of 2013.

The data confirms both the strength and resilience of the overall business environment and M&A market in New Jersey” said Ari Fuchs, Managing Director of DAK.

The report analyzes private equity and strategic buyer trends, while recognizing the hot beds of activity from a county and regional perspective, as well as which industries have seen a spike in transactions, at the expense of others.  Business owners and professionals may be surprised by the shifts in the types of acquirers and the impact from foreign investors.

All business owners and the professionals that serve them will gain insight  that could help to shape strategies  for the business and provide some advantage to those making growth or exit plans.

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.
