About CG Petsky Prunier

Founded in 1999, Petsky Prunier is the leading investment banking advisor to the Technology, Media, Marketing, and Information Services (TMMIS) industries.  In February 2019, Petsky Prunier merged with Canaccord Genuity to create a dominant, full-service middle market investment bank serving growth companies in the TMMIS industries,  completing transactions that have ranged from strategic sales, private equity recaps, corporate divestitures to growth, mezzanine, and alternative financings, while also benefitting from the strength of one of the leading equity capital markets operations with global reach and distribution. CG Petsky Prunier’s track record of success is recognized by the financial sponsor community – more than half the firm’s engagements involve representing investor-backed companies; at the same time, our superior industry coverage also continues to position CG Petsky Prunier as the go-to advisor for founder and management-owned TMMIS industry businesses.
