M&A Advisor Names CMF as Finalist for Service of the Year


CMF Associates, a Philadelphia-based financial, operational, and human capital solutions provider, announced that its post-transaction “FORWARD” program has been selected as a finalist for Service of the Year for the 11th Annual M&A Advisor Awards.

The “FORWARD” program is a modular-based service offering designed for middle-market private equity funds that are the first institutional money into a family-run business or corporate carve-out. “FORWARD” institutionalizes a private equity standard of reporting and digests all of the post-close deal-related matters within 120 days of a transaction.

“We are honored that our colleagues in the middle-market private equity industry recognize the value that CMF’s ‘FORWARD’ Program provides and we are convinced that the good starts created with the ‘FORWARD’ Program will lead to good exits for our private equity clients,” said Tom Bonney, founder and managing director at CMF Associates.

The winner for M&A Product/Service of the Year will be announced at the 11th Annual M&A Advisor Awards Gala on Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012 at the New York Athletic Club in New York City.

CMF Associates delivers transaction- and transition-focused financial, operational, and human capital solutions to private equity, middle-market and small cap public companies.
