Atlas Advisors has formed strategic partnerships designed to provide industry expertise in important sectors such as retail, apparel and energy, and to expand its geographic reach by providing on-the-ground presence in selected countries. Atlas Advisors’ partners also refer promising opportunities to the firm and assist in transaction execution.

Marvin Traub Associates (“MTA”), a business development and strategic consulting firm based in New York, has partnered with Atlas Advisors to assess opportunities in the retail and apparel sectors. The combination of MTA’s expertise in brand development, licensing and electronic retailing with the transaction-structuring expertise and senior relationships of Atlas Advisors professionals provides a unique approach to uncovering and executing strategic alternatives in the apparel and retail sectors.

Examples of the partnership’s success are the sale of Scotch & Soda to Kelwood, a portfolio company of Sun Capital Partners, and the Rock & Republic sale of its intellectual property to VF Corporation.

ChinaVest and Atlas Advisors have a formal partnership to cross-market opportunities for international clients seeking to execute buy-side deals in China or Chinese companies seeking to acquire businesses outside China. The partnership extends Atlas Advisors’ execution capabilities to an important geographic region for our clients.

As an example, the partnership advised Cyrte Investments and AMT Capital on the formation of a joint venture film/media content distribution company in China.
