CSG Partners Wins M&A Deal of the Year

CSG Partners announced the M&A Advisor recognized it with the M&A Deal of the Year for transactions between $250MM and $500MM for its work on the Triple Canopy transaction.

This was the second award that CSG Partners won for this transaction. The first award it won for the Triple Canopy transaction was the USA Deal of the Year Middle Markets award that it earned less than a month ago from the Global M&A Network at the M&A Atlas Awards ceremony.

The Triple Canopy transaction represented the only ESOP deal to win an award that evening.

“M&A Deal of the Year is one of the most prestigious awards one can win from the M&A Advisor and is a monumental accomplishment for our firm, our team, our partners and our clients,” said Larry Kaplan, founder and managing director of CSG Partners. “We are honored to be continually recognized among the best in our industry and look forward to continuing to work on award-worthy transactions for our clients.”

“The award winners represent the best of the M&A industry in 2014 and earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive finalists,” said David Fergusson, Co-CEO and president of The M&A Advisor. “From lower middle market to multi-billion dollar deals, we are recognizing the leading transactions, firms and individuals that represent the highest levels of performance.”
