Generational Equity Named Runner-Up in the M&A Advisor Boutique Investment Bank of the Year Award

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - February 16, 2009) - Generational Equity, an advisor to privately held and family-owned businesses for exit planning, business valuation, and mergers-and-acquisition services, was named runner-up for the prestigious M&A Advisor Boutique Investment Bank of the Year Award. This was Generational Equity's first year to be nominated for the award.

"We are extremely proud and honored to be among this year's nominees," said Ryan Binkley, president of Generational Equity. "The M&A Advisor Awards are widely regarded as the number-one event for M&A professionals, and we were delighted to find ourselves nominated with some of the top companies in our industry."

The Middle-Market M&A Awards Gala, which was held on December 15th in New York City, honors deal teams, deal makers and firms whose activities "set the standards for the industry," according to M&A Advisor.

Ryan Binkley represented Generational Equity at the event, as well as other members of senior management from the M&A firm, which is headquartered in Dallas. "This was a great opportunity to meet with industry colleagues and take the pulse of middle-market mergers and acquisitions during these interesting times," said Binkley.

Despite the volatility in the U.S. and global economies, Generational Equity closed more deals and received more recognition in 2008 than at any time in its history. This past November, Ryan Binkley was onstage at Meyerson Symphony Hall to receive the prestigious Dallas 100™ award, with Generational Equity ranked fifth among Dallas's fastest growing companies.

"The awards and the recognition are certainly gratifying," said Binkley, "because they are a reflection of our efforts to continuously improve and better serve our clients."
