Metis is the premier mergers and acquisitions advisory firm in Pacific Northwest focused on the global adult beverage and hospitality industries. Formerly known simply as “Exvere”, we have been advising privately-held businesses on capital transactions including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and recapitalizations for over 25 years.
Our firm is named after Metis, the Greek goddess of prudence and wise counsel. Our team has over 50-years of combined experience in the Pacific Northwest adult beverage and hospitality industries. Metis (and our antecedent company, Exvere) have been trusted advisors to our clients since 1991. We know the industry, but more importantly, our roots are deep seated in the Pacific Northwest. We manage each transaction with upmost confidentiality through a proven, disciplined process that produces options and results that typically exceed our clients’ expectations.
We provide advisory services to the adult beverage and hospitality industries across the full spectrum of capital transactions. Whether your interest is a partial or complete exit, acquiring a business, recapitalizing a business, a management buyout, or just understanding what your options are a conversation with Metis is a wise place to start. Private business owners are often far less experienced at the M&A process than buyers, which can place them at a costly disadvantage. Our experience and expertise levels the playing field.
The Metis team is comprised of industry veterans with substantial operational and leadership experience in the industries served. Every business is unique, and we take the time to understand and present what makes each business special. We manage each assignment through a proven, disciplined process that maintains the utmost confidentiality and produces options and results that typically exceed our clients’ expectations.
We are located at 1 North Coleville, Walla Walla, WA 99362.
