Global M&A Network Honors ROTH Capital Partners

ROTH Capital Partners announced that its Consumer Investment Banking team received two awards at the 2013 M&A Atlas Awards sponsored by Global M&A Network. Award winners were honored at the Awards Gala Ceremony held in New York City on October 24, 2013.

ROTH won the award for U.S.A. M&A Deal of the Year for Small Markets for advising mobile device accessories brand INCIPIO Technologies on the acquisition of wireless audio brand BRAVEN. ROTH also acted as placement agent in connection with raising capital for the acquisition, arranging a new $50 million senior credit facility to finance the future growth of INCIPIO and BRAVEN.

In addition, ROTH’s Consumer Investment Banking team was recognized as Boutique M&A Investment Bankers of the Year. This award honored the team’s excellence on not only the INCIPIO transaction, but also on several transactions during the past 12 months, including the acquisition of Heelys by Tengram Capital Partner’s portfolio company Sequential Brands Group, Navarre’s acquisition of Speed FC and iGO’s sale of a stake to Steel Excel.

The two awards received at this year’s event mark the fourth consecutive year in which ROTH has been recognized by Global M&A Network, bringing cumulative awards earned by ROTH to a total of nine.

“These awards represent the hard work and dedication our team has put forth to build a premier advisory firm,” said Joe Schimmelpfennig, managing director at ROTH Capital Partners. “We’ve been able to attract and build a great team of bankers, and have the privilege of working with extraordinary entrepreneurs.”
