BHP wins award at the 16th annual M&A Advisor Awards ceremony
Belden Hill Partners was awarded “Corporate / Strategic Deal of the Year” in the $100M – $500M category at the 2017 M&A Advisor Awards ceremony at the Metropolitan Club, New York, NY in late November of 2017 for its role in the sale of its 4th generation, family business client, Globe Holding Company, to MSA Safety, Inc., a publicly traded company based in Cranberry Township, PA.
“Since 2002, we have been honoring the leading M&A transactions, companies and dealmakers. Belden Hill Partners was chosen from over 650 participating companies to receive the award. It gives us great pleasure to recognize Belden Hill and bestow upon them our highest honor for M&A firms and professionals,” said David Fergusson, Co-CEO and President, The M&A Advisor.
“We are honored to be recognized for our work with Globe Holding Company,” said Jim Murphy, Managing Partner at Belden Hill Partners. “When working with multi-generational, family companies, it is important that the family business strive for the best outcome, ‘All Things Considered’. While a full and fair price for the business is important, the cultural fit and alignment with the family’s legacy and values are equally as important, which the Globe / MSA combination certainly illustrates.”
The M&A Advisor Awards ceremony is the premier celebration of the year for the industry’s leading M&A Dealmakers and was held in conjunction with the 2017 M&A Advisor Summit that featured over 500 of the industry’s leading M&A professionals participating in exclusive interactive forums led by over 35 M&A, media, academic, and industry stalwarts.
