“As cross border M&A volumes return and promise to exceed pre-crisis level, we are witnessing an unprecedented transformation of local market firms and dealmakers into global M&A experts whose intimate knowledge and expertise in the cultural, financial and legal arenas are redefining our industry,” says David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor. “The 2015 International M&A Award winners represent the best of the cross border M&A industry in 2014 who earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive finalists.”
Ryan Binkley, President of Generational Equity stated, “The hard work that our deal teams put into these transactions was clearly recognized by the judges of the International M&A Awards.” He added, “We are so thankful to have such amazing professionals in our organization, deal makers that are clear leaders in our space.”
The 7 th Annual International M&A Awards Gala honored the leading deal teams, firms and professionals whose activities set the standard for cross border M&A transactions. This year, over 500 companies, representing every major market in the world, became finalists for the awards. An independent judging committee of 19 top cross border M&A industry experts determined the ultimate recipients of the awards which were revealed “Academy-Award style” at the gala last week.
“We found the perfect investor for CExchange in Foxconn” indicated Tom Staszak, lead deal maker on the transaction. “Fortunately we had a great client to work with and a fantastic opportunity for a buyer that was a good fit, a true win-win for both parties.”
According to Brenen Hofstadter, MBA, CM&AA and President and Supervising Principal of Generational Capital Markets, “The Johnston Grain and Ports operations were unique, and through our exhaustive buyer marketing campaign we determined it would be optimal for our clients and the buyers to sell each business to separate buyers. This novel approach was highlighted in a case study written by the M&A Advisor which can be downloaded below”.
