We had a lot to be proud of in 2020, and we are grateful for the continuing trust of our clients, colleagues, and the greater Boston M&A community. As it was a challenging year in many ways, it’s important we celebrate the success of our clients and the accomplishments of our team. Below are some highlights:
- The Mirus team represented multiple M&A clients in 2020. AdvanSource Biomaterials Corporation, a materials technology company specializing in medical grade polymers, sold substantially all of its assets to a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Chemical America. LiveData Utilities, a provider of middleware for the utilities industry, sold to Oracle. Janis Research Laboratories sold its cryogenics business to Lake Shore Cryotronics. We advised two public companies and an ESOP-owned company on acquisitions and corporate actions. To close out the year, we represented Valley Fibers Corporation, dba WEBS America’s Yarn Store and yarn.com, in its sale to LoveCrafts Group Limited.
- We remain bullish about middle-market M&A activity and have continued to expand the Mirus team. We’re pleased that Rudy Minar chose to join Mirus in 2020 and look forward to his leadership within the technology group. We also welcomed Eric Lanser and Kevin Corcoran to the team, and celebrated Bryce Bell’s promotion to Senior Associate.
- In early March, we supported the Greater Boston Food Bank through a day of volunteering at their Boston facility. Little did we know how much the world would change in couple of weeks and how organizations like the GBFB would become more important than ever.
- In mid-March, we transitioned to a remote “work from home” model, which has been successful for both our clients and our team. While we were away from the office, we enjoyed several team building events including a virtual escape room, trivia nights, happy hours, and our first ever virtual holiday party.
We appreciate your trust in us as we continue to grow our firm to best serve you, your companies, boards, clients and colleagues. Thank you for your contributions to the success of Mirus Capital Advisors in 2020. Here’s to 2021!
