W.G. Nielsen & Co., a leading investment banking firm headquartered in Denver, served as the buy-side financial advisor to Hospitality DNA in its acquisition of North American Directory Services ("NADS") headquartered in Loveland, Colorado.
NADS is one of the largest hospitality media companies in North America. Founded in 1984, the company partners with hotels and local businesses to provide in-facility advertising which includes guest directories, key cards, tent cards, restaurant menus and other media. NADS provides full-service print and design services to its lodging partners.
"We have enjoyed working with the Hospitality DNA team for this buy-side engagement. We tend to advise clients on the sell-side but we also work on the buy-side at times," said Michael Harris, Vice President at W.G. Nielsen & Co. "We value the opportunity to leverage our sell-side experience when advising on the buy-side and to broaden our firm's media experience. Interestingly enough, our search for Hospital DNA was nationwide and it was pure irony that we found NADS here in Colorado."
