Generational Equity Ranked as a Leading M&A Firm in 1st Half of 2017

By Generational Equity

Thomson Reuters Ranking

Through the first half of 2017, based on Thomson Reuters rankings, Generational Equity is #2 for deals closed in the U.S. valued up to $50 million and #5 in deals closed up to $500 million.

These rankings are significant because it reflects our firm’s professionalism and dedication to providing exemplary M&A services for our clients. Other notable investment banks in the rankings up to $50 million were Goldman Sachs (7th), Piper Jaffray (11th), Credit Suisse (16th) and Morgan Stanley (19th). And up to $500 million the list included Jeffries (7th), Lazard (9th) and Citi (17th).

According to Dwight Jacobs, Executive Vice President, Mergers and Acquisitions for Generational Equity, “Our YTD rankings are reflective of two things: The best seller’s market since 2007 and the skills of our dealmakers in finding buyers and investors for our clients. We expect our rankings will only improve as we move through 2017 based on buyer activity we are seeing so far this year.”

Thomson Reuters Deals Content is the most extensive and flexible resource available for timely M&A and Capital Markets transactions. The firm’s leading-edge products for the deal-making community enable analysis of the current trends in the market and assess the changing competitive landscape. Thomson Reuter’s research is recognized as one of the most accurate databases in the M&A industry.

Ryan Binkley, President & CEO of Generational Equity added, “It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team to be ranked so high through the first half of 2017. We are truly blessed and honored that so many business owners have entrusted us to guide them through the exit planning process. We are quickly approaching $4 billion in wealth transferred to our clients, and our rankings reflect this success.”
