The Aerospace, Defense & Government Services (ADGS) Investment Banking Group initiates, structures, and negotiates mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures as well as raises equity and debt in the public and private capital markets. Our success is driven by our expertise in corporate finance and capital markets and our thorough understanding of trends in the aerospace, defense, and government services industries. While the group was founded in 1995 and we have been a leader in ADGS transactions that helped shape the industry, we are most proud of our relationship approach to our clients, many of whom have been our clients since the 1990s. This relationship approach is a cornerstone of the Stifel's Investment Banking culture and reflects our capabilities as a full-service investment bank. Our extensive experience and knowledge in the ADGS sector combined with our full-service investment banking capabilities and track record with public and private investors gives us the ability to develop creative solutions to complex situations and transactions.
