GCA Savvian and Altium sign definitive Merger agreement to form GCA

GCA Savvian Corporation, a premier global investment bank, and Altium, a leading international mid-market financial advisory group, announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement.


This combination creates a leading independent international investment bank focused on growth companies with an extensive global network, cross-border capability and track record of industry-shaping transactions. GCA will operate under the names GCA Altium in Europe and GCA in the United States and Asia.
Upon the completion of the transaction, GCA will be a leading global pure play advisory business with a focus on growth companies and the 7th largest listed M&A advisory firm in the world, with approximately $200 million in advisory revenues, approximately 370 staff, 300 of whom are experienced M&A bankers and growth company experts, offices in 14 locations in 10 countries around the globe, and more than 315 completed transactions over the last three years. The combination brings together two extremely complementary businesses with a strong strategic and cultural fit. Together, GCA Savvian and Altium focus on growth companies and hold top positions in key growth sectors, particularly technology, digital media, telecommunications, eCommerce and retail. There are substantial opportunities for synergies between the two businesses, which will result in increased international reach to form outstanding cross-border capabilities and a truly global network in key markets. The merger further increases the firm’s leading volume of cross border deals and will drive revenue growth while also further strengthening its presence within the private equity and venture capital community.
