Completes 203 Deals, Launches Energy Transition Practice

CLEVELAND, OH/UNITED STATESMay 10, 2023 — Globalscope Partners Ltd., a worldwide network of M&A firms specializing in middle-market transactions, closed 203 deals last year with a combined value of $20.8 billion USD. The 2022 revenue tally is the highest in the network’s 35-year history.

MelCap Partners, LLC has been a proud partner of the Globalscope network since 2016.

Globalscope’s 2022 revenues came from a wide range of countries and diverse business categories, but Life Sciences and Consumer sectors proved to be the highest-performing categories, while Industrials also performed well.

Globalscope was founded in 1987 by a small group of entrepreneurs who believed there was a need for a worldwide network of specialists who handled international M&A deals for middle-market businesses. Since then, Globalscope has grown from a small cadre of M&A specialists into a network of 55 member firms in nearly 50 countries.

According to Al Melchiorre, President of MelCap Partners, “Globalscope’s growth in 2022 is a strong validation for the network’s founding principles and core value proposition.  Through Globalscope, we have a worldwide reach with more than 400 investment bankers across the world who can help provide custom solutions for your business. The 55 firms in Globalscope include financial and business advisors on nearly every continent. By working with our team at MelCap for your transaction, you not only get our team’s expert advice and recommendations, but also gain access to insights and services from other firms worldwide ensuring that your business has the support it needs to succeed.”

In other 2022 highlights, Globalscope announced the formation of a new Energy Transition Practice Sector at its Fall Meeting in Bangkok. The team will specialize in M&A activities that involve the transition from coal and oil-based energy to lower carbon and renewable forms of energy production.

Globalscope’s 2023 Fall Conference will be held October 25-28 in Madrid, Spain.
