Stephens Investment Banking For The Middle Market - Sectors

The Stephens Investment Banking team focuses on an expanding range of industries, from consumer and healthcare to energy and technology. In each area of focus, we combine in-depth industry knowledge with strong execution.

Stephens' Financial Sponsors Group is focused on building long-term relationships with private equity firms through a highly targeted, high-touch coverage effort. Stephens' approach is to provide value-added insight and proprietary ideas to sponsors that concentrate on similar market areas. We coordinate communication with our industry-focused investment bankers who possess in-depth knowledge of their respective industry groups' dynamics and participants. The Financial Sponsor Group also serves to coordinate relevant deal flow opportunities for private equity firms interested in participating in Stephens’ sellside and private placement transactions.

Stephens' unique combination of transaction experience and industry expertise allows us to provide the private equity community with a comprehensive array of strategic advisory and execution capabilities, including buyside and sellside advisory services.

Our resume of large, complex M&A transactions enhances Stephens’ ability to provide middle-market-focused sponsors with experience and resources typically available only to the country’s largest private equity firms. Furthermore, our equity capital markets expertise in issuing equity and equity-related securities for both public and private companies expands a sponsor’s liquidity alternatives, including IPOs and follow-ons as well as private placements (growth equity, recapitalizations, etc.)  

Lastly, Stephens' Debt Capital Markets team assists sponsors in raising public and private debt across the risk spectrum.  By not committing debt capital, Stephens can offer its clients unbiased advice on the most appropriate terms and structures.  Routinely, we combine our M&A and Leveraged Finance knowledge when partnering with a sponsor on buyside transactions which provides the sponsor with two areas of expertise vital to executing a purchase.
