GlassRatner Wins Industry Accolades from Daily Report, M&A Network


GlassRatner Advisory & Capital Group was recognized as the #1 provider in several categories in the Daily Report’s “Best of 2019” rankings and as a winner at the Global M&A Network’s 11th Annual Turnaround Atlas Awards.

“I am very proud of the GlassRatner team,” said Ian Ratner, co-founder and principal of GlassRatner. “These accolades reflect the quality of service we provide to our clients on a daily basis. As we look to continue expanding our core service offerings, we remain committed to providing best-in-class solutions for our clients.”

GlassRatner was voted #1 in four categories in the Daily Report’s “Best of 2019” rankings, including #1 Overall Expert Witness, #1 in Forensic Accounting, #1 in Litigation Valuation and #1 Individual Expert Witness (Economic) in recognition of Ian Ratner and his contributions to the industry. This marks the firm’s fourth consecutive year ranking in the “Best of” supplement, an accomplishment earning the firm its Hall of Fame recognition.

The firm was also recognized at the 11th Annual Turnaround Atlas Award for Cross Border Special Situation M&A Deal of the Year (Small-Mid Markets). The winning transaction involved the Chapter 11 reorganization of Premier Exhibitions, a provider of museum-quality exhibitors which is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the R.M.S Titanic. As part of the transaction, GlassRatner Senior Managing Director, Marshall Glade, was engaged as Financial Advisor to Premier Exhibitions and facilitated the sale of the company’s assets which included 5,500 artifacts recovered from the Titanic wreck site, touring and permanent TITANIC exhibitions, and the BODIES exhibitions. The winning bidders of the 363 auctions were a combination of investors, including Apollo Global Management, Alta Fundamental Advisers and PacBridge, who bid $19.5 million for the assets.

These industry recognitions mark yet another achievement for GlassRatner. Earlier this year, the firm was awarded Consumer Staples Deal of the Year (Under $500 Million) in The M&A Advisor’s 13th Annual Turnaround Awards.
