Ethan Jacks
Ethan E. Jacks Managing Partner Ethan Jacks has been involved in M&A and private and public corporate finance for over 30 years. As a corporate lawyer and partner in firms including McDermott, Will and Emery, Ethan represented buyers, sellers and investors in high-tech industries, with a focus on media and communications. In 1991, Ethan was the co-founder and a senior executive at Molten Metal Technology, a groundbreaking environmental technology company which commercialized MIT-developed intellectual property, raised over $400 million in growth capital, and grew to a public market valuation of over $1 billion. Ethan moved to digital media pioneer Avid Technology in 1999, and for over 7 years served in several senior executive positions, including EVP of Corporate Development, Chief Legal Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Ethan helped drive Avid's strategy to grow both organically and through aggressive M&A, leading a total of 12 acquisitions of private and publicly held companies that fueled growth in Avid's film, video and audio sectors. In that period, Avid's revenue doubled to $1 billion, and its market valuation grew from $400 million to $2.5 billion. Since 2006, Ethan has served as an investment banker. He co-founded MediaBridge Capital Advisors in 2012 with his partner John Bowen. His transactions cover the full range of the media technology industry. In the film and video market, they include the sale of iconic film color inventor DaVinci Systems and the blue screen/green screen pioneer Ultimatte, both to Blackmagic Design; the $30 million sale of CA based wireless video leader Teradek to UK based The Vitec Group plc; and the recent sale of market dominant creative software vendor Final Draft to LA based Cast & Crew, a portfolio company of Silver Lake Partners. In the pro-audio market Ethan's transactions include the sale of audio console leader Euphonix to Avid, the sale of Minnetonka Audio Software to the Telos Alliance, and the $12 million private equity financing of Cambridge MA based audio software innovator iZotope from private equity firm ABS Partners. Ethan holds a B.S. from MIT, an MBA from MIT's Sloan School of Management, and a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center.
