Byron Capital Markets Launches M&A Practice, Hires New Team

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 10, 2011) - Byron Capital Markets, a division of Byron Securities Limited, is pleased to introduce Greg Borsk and Chris Hobbs as the newest members of our team. Greg and Chris will establish, lead and oversee our new mergers and acquisition practice. 

As co-heads of mergers and acquisitions for Byron Capital Markets, Greg and Chris bring a combined 40 years of experience in investment banking, financial advisory and public accounting. Both Greg and Chris began their careers in public accounting, Greg with Deloitte LLP, and Chris with KPMG LLP, obtaining their Chartered Accountant designations and quickly rising to senior manager roles before moving to industry in 2000. They have co-founded two financial advisory firms specializing in providing merger and acquisition services to Canadian public companies.

In addition to their Chartered Accountant designations, Greg holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Toronto, and Chris holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from the Schulich School of Business at York University.

Byron Capital Markets expects that M&A activity will substantially increase in 2011 given the improved financial position of Canadian companies, the increased global demand for commodities, and the continuing improvement in equity and debt capital markets. We believe that 2011 will be an unprecedented year for Canadian companies to capitalize on merger and acquisition opportunities.

We believe that the addition of such a strong M&A team will better position our firm in providing a much broader range of financial advisory services to our clients. We welcome the addition of Greg and Chris and the wealth of experience and leadership they bring to our team of professionals at Byron Capital Markets.
