San Diego, CA- October 24, 2016 – Objective Capital Partners, a leading M&A investment banking firm focused on transactions for companies with enterprise values up to $500MM, is pleased to announce it has been selected as a finalist in several categories for Advisor of the Year 2016. The awards acknowledge local middle market mergers and acquisitions professionals who have significantly contributed to the successful sale, expansion or recapitalization of their clients’ companies. Select winners will be invited as featured speakers at subsequent events, including the November Association for Corporate Growth conference “The Deals Behind the Advisor of the Year.” The Advisor of the Year awards program will be held at the world-renowned La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology on Thursday, October 27. The Program will begin at 4:00 p.m. with the “Game Changers: Women in the C-Suite” panel discussion followed by the Advisor of the Year program at 5:30 p.m. Ernest Rady will serve as keynote speaker.
“We are honored to be selected as a finalist for Advisor of the Year and look forward to celebrating local advisors who bring value to their clients,” says Trever Acers, Managing Director at Objective Capital Partners. “The Objective Capital team is passionate about helping business owners and entrepreneurs achieve their growth or exit objectives and excited to be recognized by clients and our referral partners for the quality service and work product that we provide.”
“We look forward to formally recognizing these finalists,” says Paul Thiel, managing director for title sponsor BNY Mellon Wealth Management. “They are instrumental in the success of the M&A community in San Diego and, until now, have largely gone unnoticed.”
Judges assessed finalists on their professional contribution in the sale, expansion or recapitalization of their clients’ companies. Led by former Broadcom Chairman John Major and Histogen founder and CEO Gail Naughton, judges included representatives of UCSD’s Rady School of Management, CSU San Marcos’ School of Business, and the La Jolla Institute, as well as several entrepreneurs who have successfully navigated the M&A process.
Awards categories include: sell-side legal representation in a sale to a public company and / or private company; long-term strategic exit planning; financial and tax strategy and structuring of a deal; buy-side legal representation; advice for internal and/or external transition; growth capital design and execution; buy-side and / or sell-side services by an investment banker or broker; sell-side financial preparation for sale by a CPA firm; and pre-transaction estate planning.
“This program is about so much more than the recognition,” says Thiel. “It’s also an educational institution that organizes and promotes ongoing M&A seminars and conferences. This fills an important niche in the San Diego business community.”
