MelCap Partners served as Applied Vision’s exclusive investment banker and financial advisor in the sale of the business. We’d like to thank the Shareholders at Applied Vision, Amir and Manijeh Novini, for hiring MelCap Partners to represent them in this once in a lifetime transaction. It was an honor and pleasure to work with them through this exciting process.
In an effort to provide the Shareholders with liquidity, to continue to support the Company’s strategic growth plans, and to continue to provide its customers with high-quality products, MelCap was able to successfully identify the ideal partner for the business. As a result, Applied Vision was sold to Antares Vision, a publicly traded company on the Italian stock exchange (Borsa Italiana), headquartered in Travagliato, Italy. Antares’ unique knowledge and experience made them the ideal buyer for the business, which will allow Applied Vision to reach its full potential over the next several years. Antares Vision is a global leader in providing inspection systems for product quality control, track & trace solutions, and smart data management for the most demanding markets. Partnering with Antares will create the perfect opportunity for continued growth and success for Applied Vision.
"In an effort to help us with this process, we interviewed a number highly qualified firms with national and international experience, and familiar with technology-oriented companies similar to us. We chose MelCap Partners as they were the most capable, passionate, and caring about our goals. We wanted to find a partner firm that would give Applied the best chance of continuing what we started over 23 years ago. MelCap was able to locate a suitable synergistic company in Antares, that will enable the Company to achieve further growth and opportunities for our employees and to increase value for customers. It was an absolute pleasure and we are delighted with the choice we made! Congratulations to the first-class professional team at MelCap. We highly recommend this team to anyone who is in need of a knowledgeable and experienced investment banking firm."
