Mirus Celebrates 30 Years of Accomplishment


Mirus Capital Advisors (Mirus) is celebrating a landmark anniversary following 30 years of service to its clients. Today, Mirus is one of the largest independent middle-market investment banking firms in the region, with a proven track record of closing over 300 transactions across a variety of industries.  From its early days providing sell-side advisory services to the technology and venture capital communities, Mirus has worked with entrepreneur-led and closely-held businesses. In the early 2000s, the firm found success expanding its advisory work into buy-side, and began working with industrial clients in addition to high-tech hardware and enterprise software firms. With its continuing expansion since 2010, the firm has become a leader in middle-market healthcare, industrial technology, consumer products, enterprise software and business services M&A, financings and valuations for private and public companies.

“Thirty years is a remarkable milestone in this industry. I’m particularly proud of our work with board-level professionals and attorneys in the Boston area who trust us to advise their long-standing clients,” noted Mirus partner Alan Fullerton. “The reputation of the firm, built over three decades of focus on client success, is our most essential asset.”

“Over 30 years having represented hundreds of business owners, we’ve learned a great deal about the kinds of people that build successful businesses and create real value,” observed Mirus Partner, Peter Alternative. “And along the way, we discovered that for most successful business owners, the definition of accomplishment goes well beyond pure financial return. That the successful sale of their business includes things like the treatment of their employees, the continuity of their businesses, and the future growth opportunities for their products and services. The opportunity to help our clients achieve successful financial outcomes as well as meaningful outcomes for their families and employees is what makes the work so rewarding”.

Among the extensive experiences the Mirus partners bring to the firm, one is business ownership. Andrew Crain’s prior experience in managing his family’s business adds to the expertise the firm has to offer. “Having run my own family’s business for over a decade and then selling the company, I take particular pride in Mirus’ work with multi-generational family-owned businesses and other privately-held companies where the founder’s legacy is extremely important to the shareholders,” stated Crain.

Mirus’ engagement with emerging technology enabled services and software businesses is an important measure of the firm’s success. “Over a third of our business includes technology and technology enabled companies, which remain a growing part of our economy,” said Mirus partners, Brendan Kiernan and Peter Alternative. “While expanding our team, we have remained committed to serving the technology community and have closed several notable enterprise transactions over the recent years.”

With its large team of senior bankers and a robust staff of junior bankers and administrative personnel, Mirus serves middle-market growth businesses, family-owned firms, private equity-backed companies and publicly-traded companies throughout North America and Europe. Since its founding, Mirus’ bankers have closed over 300 transactions. Mirus’ value of accomplishment encompasses its commitment of their clients’ personal and professional journey by leading them to their ultimate accomplishment – the sale of their business.

“We continue to build our experienced team and to invest in our platform through this busy time for M&A. Having closed over 20 deals these past three years, our team has seen opportunities for our clients across the board. At the same time, we’ve stayed true to our market, maintaining our focus on serving companies in the $10 million to $200 million revenue range,” added Alan Fullerton.
