Erickson Partners Merges with Mercer Capital

Memphis, TN – Mercer Capital, a national business valuation and financial advisory firm specializing in Corporate Valuation, Litigation Support, Financial Reporting Valuation, and Transaction Advisory Consulting, and Erickson Partners, Inc., a Texas-based Valuation and Litigation Support firm, announce their merger effective July 1, 2015.

Mercer Capital, with its strong presence throughout the Southeast and Midwest, and Erickson Partners, with its strong presence in Texas and Oklahoma, are a perfect fit.

Both firms maintain the highest standards of quality for financial analysis and client service and believe deeply in hiring and developing the best professionals.

“The culture of both firms is so similar and that was important to us. The professionals of Erickson Partners are well-known in the valuation profession as some of the best and brightest. Their work product and reputation are stellar. This merger not only allows us to broaden our geographic reach but also our industry expertise,” said Matt Crow, President of Mercer Capital.

Erickson Partners enhances Mercer Capital’s broad base of industry concentrations with their exceptional history working with and knowledge of professional sports franchises and the energy sector.

“Over our 30 plus year history, Mercer Capital has developed several industry concentrations. By adding the knowledge, insight, and expertise of Don Erickson, Bryce Erickson, and the rest of the professionals of Erickson Partners, we now bring deep experience and insight to a broader range of industries than we could as separate firms,” said Chris Mercer, CEO of Mercer Capital.

“Combining with Mercer Capital, we will now be able to offer new or expanded services that complement our existing services, as well as additional industry expertise,” said Bryce Erickson, Managing Director of Erickson Partners. “In addition to our sports franchise and energy industry concentrations, we will be able to offer deep industry concentrations in construction and building materials, agribusiness, manufacturing and financial institutions, which includes depository institutions, insurance companies, fintech companies, asset management firms, and PE firms.”

“The combined firm will have over 40 valuation professionals positioned in five markets throughout the southwest and southeast. Such a deep bench will provide us with a tremendous opportunity to better serve the expanding needs of our clients,” said Don Erickson, President of Erickson Partners. “Joining with Mercer Capital gives us national resources that will benefit our clients in Texas and beyond.”
