Services Provided

MelCap Partners served as Smith & Oby’s exclusive investment banker and financial advisor in the sale of the business. We’d like to thank Mr. Mike Brandt, President & CEO, Ted Macfarlane, CFO, and the other shareholders, for hiring MelCap Partners to represent the Company in this once in a lifetime transaction. It was an honor and pleasure to work with them throughout this exciting process.


In an effort to provide the shareholders with liquidity, and to continue to support Smith & Oby’s strategic growth plans, MelCap was able to successfully identify the best partner for the business. As a result, Smith & Oby was sold to McNally Capital headquartered in Chicago, IL. McNally Capital is a family-owned private equity firm targeting thesis-driven investments in the U.S., specifically in founder and management owned companies.
