OUR VALUES


Honesty.  We believe that integrity is the key value.  We are honest with one another and everyone with whom we work outside our Firm. 


Respect.  We believe a cooperative “get along to go along” culture benefits our Firm as a whole.  A guiding principle of our Firm is to treat others in the same manner that we would like to be treated.


Teamwork.  We operate as a team, working together to create the best outcome for our clients.  We are committed and determined to do the very best for our clients.

Added has substantial experience in M&A transactions.  We help our clients create value through M&A transactions where our client is a purchaser, a seller or a merger partner.  Our client focus is to act as financial advisor for small cap companies.  In addition to M&A services, our services also include restructurings, general financial advisor services, valuations and fairness opinions. 


Added has a substantial network of public companies and private companies.  Its extensive network facilitates our ability to initiate transactions and to create value for our clients.  Creativity is our secret sauce – our competitive advantage. 


We strive to find that creative idea or transaction structure that cements a deal for our client.  Added is well known for its creativity in deal structure and finding that innovative value-add that results in its client reaching a deal consensus with the other side.


Added is also known for its ability to create add-on value for its clients by identifying undervalued or underappreciated companies that in an M&A transaction can generate very good value for our client.
