Marlin & Associates Honored for Six “Deal-Of-The-Year” Awards

New York, NY (June 23, 2011) Marlin & Associates ("Marlin"), the boutique investment banking and strategic advisory firm, today announced that the firm has been recognized with six (6)  “Deal-of-the-Year” awards for advising on recent significant merger-and-acquisition transactions. 
Four of these awards were presented earlier this week at a ceremony held at Sotheby’s in New York City.  The awards and the event were sponsored and hosted by The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) New York together with the M&A Advisor, a conference producer and newsletter publisher serving the middle market finance industry.  ACG New York is the premier association in New York City, representing 900 middle market deal making professionals: private capital providers (both equity and debt), M&A advisors, corporate executives, accountants, attorneys and other related service providers.   The other two awards were presented in May at the 6th Annual M&A Advisor Middle Market Financing Awards Gala at the Drake Hotel in Chicago.  In both cases, the finalists were judged by an independent body of experts who represented a cross-section of the middle market financing industry.

  • Corporate and Strategic Acquisition-of-the-Year;
