"Though we were thrilled to be nominated for 11 awards, winning the deal of the year for the lower middle-market was especially exciting, as deals in the $50M and below range are the core focus of our business," commented Ryan Binkley, President of Generational Equity. "The turbulence in the economy this past year has placed challenges on the financial markets which have impacted deal-making. This award underscores our employees' accomplishments in this difficult economic climate."

The 8th annual M&A Advisor Awards Gala honored excellence in deal-making for transactions over $10 million in value for 2009. The gala is one of the biggest and most exclusive networking events in the M&A industry.

"The awards winners represent the best of the M&A industry in 2009 and earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive finalists," said Roger Aguinaldo, CEO of the M&A Advisor. "Each winner should take pride in their award and the message it sends about the resilience of our industry."
