Cascadia Capital is celebrating two decades of serving family business owners and entrepreneurs. Year-to-date, the Firm has completed 25 transactions on behalf of our clients, representing nearly $1.5 billion of transaction value. This surge in completed transactions portends an expected record-setting year for Cascadia with an anticipated 40 or more closed transactions in total for 2019, adding to the over 340 transactions closed with nearly $12 billion of transaction value since the Firm’s founding in 1999. Drawing on our deep industry expertise and broad relationships with investors and strategic buyers, we continue to navigate the dynamic business and M&A environment to drive compelling outcomes for our business-owner clients.
One of the hallmarks of Cascadia’s culture and success is a commitment to building long-term relationships. We regularly serve as trusted advisors to entrepreneurs and business owners for a meaningful duration, measured in years, prior to engagement. Cascadia also has well-established long-term relationships with leading firms in the legal, financial, accounting, wealth management and consulting sectors, who share our common focus of serving family business and owner-operator companies.
In our 20th Anniversary year, it is important to recognize all of you – our clients, past and present, and our core partner relationships – who have helped us build the Cascadia platform. Your success is our success, and for that we thank you!
As we look ahead to Q4 2019 and into 2020, we continue to see record levels of transaction activity. Notwithstanding all the noise in the public markets, global environment and US political scene, we foresee robust M&A and capital markets through 2020. This is especially the case for strong growth companies with scale, compelling margins and proven management teams. We expect companies with these characteristics will continue to receive tremendous levels of interest and compelling valuations from both strategic buyers and industry-focused private equity firms. Please look for our Q4 newsletter, which will be released soon, for additional market insights.
Above all, we remain committed to serving as trusted advisors, helping family business owners and entrepreneurs achieve their goals of growing and maximizing the value of the companies they have spent years, a lifetime, or generations building.
