By Generational Equity

International M&A Advisor Award GE

Generational Equity sister company, Generational Capital Markets, Inc. (GCM), Member FINRA/SIPC, was honored by The M&A Advisor with the Private Equity Deal of the Year Award (from $10MM - $50MM) at the 9th Annual International M&A Awards on June 12, 2017, in New York City.

“This is a huge achievement, especially given the global competition we faced,” said Terry Johnson, Generational Equity Chief Revenue and Strategy Officer. “We’re all very proud to work alongside GCM. They’re a great success story and a key business in the Generational family of companies. My congratulations to Brenen Hofstadter, Chris Heckert, and the entire GCM team on this well deserved recognition.”

The award-winning deal was the acquisition of GCM client Dock Edge +, Inc., by Canada Metal (Pacific) Ltd., a subsidiary of Branford Castle Partners. The deal closed on September 12, 2016.

GCM Managing Director Chris Heckert advised Dock Edge + in the transaction. “I am honored by this award,” said Heckert. “This transaction was a great example of the benefits of international M&A and I look forward to seeing this partnership continue to grow.”

The M&A Advisor is the world’s premier think tank and leadership organization for M&A, restructuring and corporate finance professionals. It hosts the International M&A Awards every year to recognize the top international deals, dealmakers and firms conducting important transactions in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa and Australia.

This year’s finalists were from more than 60 companies and represented every major market in the world. An independent judging committee of 23 top M&A industry experts determined the ultimate recipients of the awards.

“The 2017 International M&A Award winners represent the best of the international M&A industry in 2016 who earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive finalists,” said David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor.
