DAE Advertising, Inc (“DAE” or “the Company”) – SC&H Capital was retained as investment banker to seek a buyer for this full service advertising agency founded in 1990 with a unique niche serving the growing Asian-American communities. In 2000, The Company was acquired by a web development company, who was then acquired by a large software company, which has since gone through the process of divesting of all its assets. The liquidating trust hired SC&H Capital in September of 2016 with the directive to facilitate a sale prior to the end of the year. Through an exhaustive international marketing campaign SC&H received numerous expressions of interest; however initial offers included some form of payout over time, which would not allow the parent company’s liquidating trust to close out their books by year’s end. Through continued negotiations, a cash sale of the company’s stock closed on November 18, 2016 to Stockholm based, The Marketing Group PLC’s, US multi-media marketing and design subsidiary, Wilkin Marketing, based in Burlington, KY. All DAE management and employees were retained and the company continues to operate.
