Chicago, IL/Scottsdale, AZ – Madison Street Capital (MSC), an international investment banking firm, acted as the exclusive financial advisor in arranging a $14MM mezzanine facility for Engenavis. Founded in 2016 in Scottsdale, Arizona, Engenavis designs and manufactures energy storage batteries utilized in the automobile, waste recycling, home automation and other industries. The facility was provided by ExWorks Capital. The transaction was announced by Charles Botchway, CEO of Madison Street Capital and led by Senior Managing Director, Richard Rodgers.
“The ExWorks transaction was an important step for our Company, enabling us to complete the amalgamation of Engenavis and iQ Power Licensing AG, and to simultaneously acquire an Italian battery manufacturer now being retrofitted with the Company’s proprietary manufacturing technologies.” Kevin Loman, the CEO of Engenavis further stated, “We appreciate the commitment and efforts of Madison Street Capital to help us complete this funding. It is a key component to the dramatic transformation underway in our combined organization.”
Luke LaHaie, Managing Director of ExWorks Capital, who led the underwriting effort for ExWorks offered, “We are closing more than 40 transactions every year and have a committed due diligence team of over forty that can close a complex transaction in four weeks or less. We have enjoyed working with the Engenavis’ management team to resolve the complex issues of this transaction in a timely fashion and working with Madison Street Capital.”
Senior Managing Director, Rick Rodgers added, “You seldom find an early stage company such as Engenavis with such a complete compliment of a senior management team. I expect the consolidated company to experience heroic growth in both the battery business and other green technologies and exceed even their optimistic plans. In addition, while I have been involved with complex financings for over 35 years, ExWorks due diligence team was extraordinary…thorough, professional, working through cross border issues involving Switzerland, Italy, and the United States.”
