Generational Capital Markets Named Finalist in M&A Advisor’s EMEA Corporate Growth Awards

By Capital Markets

M&A Advisor EMEA Award

We’re pleased to announce that one of Generational Capital Markets' deals has been announced as a finalist for two awards in The M&A Advisor’s EMEA Corporate Growth Awards: “Transaction of the Year (OVER £50MM - £75MM)” and “Industrials Deal of the Year (Under £100MM)”

“We are pleased that the excellent work of Phil Pizzurro and Mark Galovic is being recognized by the international business community,” said Brenen Hofstadter, Chief M&A Officer with Generational Equity, and President and Supervising Principal with Generational Capital Markets.

“Their perseverance, creativity and professionalism are powerful forces that help corporations grow and prosper, while the former owners exit with their financial needs met.”

The nominated deal saw Aberdeen, Scotland-based Wood Group acquire CEC Controls of Warren, Michigan. With this acquisition, Wood Group, an international energy services company, expanded its automation and control division in the American Midwest.

“Since the inception of the M&A Advisor Awards in 2002, we have been recognizing the leading dealmakers, firms, and transactions. And, each year we celebrate the creativity, perseverance, and ingenuity of our industry’s professionals,” says David Fergusson, President and Co-Chief Executive Officer of The M&A Advisor.

“It is our great pleasure to introduce the 2nd Annual Corporate Growth Awards, presented by S&P Global Market Intelligence, that will recognize and celebrate the leading corporations, transactions, teams and professionals who play a key role in successful corporate growth strategies.”

The finalists were selected from nominees in the first stage of evaluation. Now, an independent panel of judges will select the ultimate award winners who will be announced at an Awards Gala on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, at the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair, London.

“We’re excited to be a finalist in these two international categories,” said Phil Pizzurro, Generational Capital Markets Managing Director and also the lead dealmaker in the transaction.

“The mutual synergies realized from this partnership will further accelerate the company’s goal of becoming the global leader in this space.”

A detailed list of the 2nd Annual EMEA Corporate Growth Award Finalists is available from The M&A Advisor.
