CHICAGO, IL – April 16, 2019 – The M&A Advisor announced the winners of the 11th Annual International M&A Awards this week. Madison Street Capital, the Chicago based international investment banking firm, was named a winner for the Deal Financing of the Year for the amalgamation of IQ International and Engenavis.

“The process was complex from the moment MSC Managing Director Joseph Alioto’s personal relationships got the firm started on the deal right through to the successful completion of the amalgamation of IQ International and Engenavis. It included a wide range of domestic and global activities that required expert technical, financial, commercial and legal input,” said Charles Botchway, CEO, Madison Street Capital. “We are honored to receive recognition for our work among such an impressive list of winners.”

As one of the fastest growing boutique investment banks serving lower-middle to middle-market businesses across the globe, Madison Street Capital has earned numerous awards including the Refinancing Deal of the Year, the Cross Border M&A Deal of the Year, and most recently, 2019 Turnaround M&A Deal of the Year.

Winners were selected by an independent judging panel comprised of esteemed industry experts. Judges evaluated nominations representing hundreds of companies around the world with deals valued at $10 million to tens of billions.

“In the last several years, global financial reform has ushered in unprecedented international dealmaking opportunities in the M&A industry. At The M&A Advisor, we have witnessed this trend in the nominations for noteworthy deals, world-class firms, and outstanding professionals,” says Roger Aguinaldo, Founder of The M&A Advisor. “Since our introduction of the International M&A Awards in 2009, we’ve had the pleasure of honoring so many outstanding global M&A professionals. In such a competitive field, we are especially excited to honor the achievements and expertise of this year’s extraordinary International M&A Award winners.”

The awards will be presented in conjunction with the 2019 Global Corporate Growth Summit at a black-tie Gala on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 in midtown Manhattan at The New York Athletic Club. This exclusive forum provides a unique opportunity for the professionals guiding and executing corporate growth strategies to engage in open dialogue with their peers about the challenges and opportunities that companies are facing in this unique global business environment. Leading c-suite executives, technology innovators, M&A dealmakers, and corporate development, investment, and finance professionals will assemble for interactive discussions on Global Corporate Growth in the Technological Revolution, and more.
