Global Reach, Vertical Depth
MediaBridge Capital Advisors is a global, industry-focused investment bank that advises companies on their growth, liquidity and exit strategies by way of mergers, acquisitions and capital investment. We concentrate on serving companies within the Media Content Lifecycle – those which create, manage, commercialize or distribute content for the media markets – with revenue typically between $10 million and $250 million.
Led by Ethan E. Jacks and John C. Bowen, the MediaBridge senior team has over 50 years of combined experience in digital media, technology and investment banking. In the last 15 years we have advised on over 40 mergers and acquisitions and private equity financings for industry leading companies in the media sector worldwide, spanning our five primary market segments: video, audio, broadcast, cinema and streaming media markets.
Domain Expertise and Operational Experience
We are passionate about the media industry and the profound paradigm shifts taking place in the technology landscape. We have experienced these changes first hand. From 1999 to 2006, Ethan Jacks served as a senior executive for digital media icon Avid Technology, while its market value grew from $400 million to $2.5 billion. John Bowen spent 12 years working for IT industry leaders before becoming an industry securities analyst. He accurately predicted in his Wall Street research reports that the media technology industry would dramatically shift from custom analog/digital systems to general-purpose, network-based IT solutions running media-oriented software. Together with a group of distinguished industry advisors, all of whom have decades of senior domain experience in the media sector, MediaBridge brings unmatched transactional expertise and industry knowledge to our clients.
