NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation), a leading provider of alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) services, recently announced it raised significant growth capital from the private equity firm Sageview Capital. Scura Partners initiated this transaction on behalf of NAM and participated in the negotiations leading to the Sageview investment.
Sageview’s investment will enable NAM to accelerate its growth initiatives throughout the United States, solidifying NAM’s current leadership position in the ADR industry.
“Scura Partners was key to our identifying the right partner for our growth strategy and guided us through a complicated transaction” said Roy Israel, President & CEO of NAM. “Scura Partners’ knowledge and attention to detail was impressive.”
Scura Partners worked with NAM to develop its long-term strategy and objectives, and initiated the process leading to finding the right partner for NAM to carry out this strategy.
