About Us

Although we have executed transactions in many different industries, Conexus has come to specialized on three key industries:

Flavor & Fragrance

The flavor and fragrance industry originated in lower Manhattan with the establishment of essential oil trading houses. After initially moving up-town and then up-state, most flavor and fragrance companies finally settled in Northern New Jersey. Conexus has been a strategic advisor to many flavor and fragrance companies, both small and large and has initiated and negotiated many transactions in the industry. As the flavor and fragrance industry started to consolidate geographically, we have increased our coverage in the U.S. and Europe. We believe that we have become one of the pre-dominant advisors in the industry. Please see our coverage of the industry in the following publications:

- Perfumer & Flavorist (August 2009) - Strategies of Survival and Success (pdf)

- Perfumer & Flavorist (September 2011) - What to Do When the Time Comes (pdf)

- Commerce & Industry Association of New Jersey (pdf)

Specialty Chemical & Food Ingredients:

The specialty chemical and food ingredient industries are characterized by a large number of smaller companies operating alongside some of the well-known, large international firms. Cost pressures and scale economies, as well as succession issues have caused many companies to consolidate and/or seek an exit. We have become increasingly active in helping these suppliers structure a sale / merger of their companies. We have also represented larger suppliers and private equity firms in finding suitable additions for their operations.


Being venture capitalists ourselves, we are frequently asked to raise capital for other technology companies, mostly in telecommunications and software. Partially because of the former Bell Laboratories, Sarnoff and other research laboratories in the state, New Jersey has attracted a great number of engineering talents, many of whom have continued to start their own, capital-hungry technology ventures.
