Committed to Financing and Advising Innovative Companies
Merriman Capital, Inc. is a story of evolution, determination and persistence. The firm has revitalized its banking and brokerage platform to focus solely on small, high-growth companies and the institutions and individuals that invest in them. The dramatic change in the brokerage landscape over the past several years has created a need for innovative advisory and financing services. We believe that helping these growth companies access capital will allow them to innovate, create jobs and in some cases change the world.
Over the past 10 years, Merriman Capital has closed investment banking transactions worth more than nine billion dollars. Headquartered in San Francisco and New York, the firm is also the leading investment bank for OTCQX-listed companies, having more OTCQX listings than any competing investment bank. Merriman Capital’s parent company, Merriman Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX: MERR), trades on OTCQX.
We generate quality advice and service on behalf of our clients through four business segments: Capital Markets Advisory, Institutional Trading Execution, Investment Banking, and our new Financial Entrepreneur Platform.
The Merriman team has the extensive institutional relationships, knowledge, and experience needed to advise corporate clients on complex capital market issues. We are contrarians—focusing on areas of the marketplace that mainstream investors do not see—and are recognized for our sector expertise in industrial efficiency, “disruptive” and materials technologies, telecommunications, resources, and consumer innovation.
Merriman wrote the first report on Stratasys (NASDAQ – SSYS) when we were a $29mm market cap with no other research coverage or sponsorship. They were the first investment bank to the table, and really got behind our story early and worked relentlessly to present our value proposition to potential investors. Merriman also helped us with two significant financings in our early days, and we have always greatly valued their advice on capital markets related issues. I’ve known Jon Merriman since 2002 and respect and appreciate his efforts on behalf of the entrepreneur.
