The 9th Annual International M&A Awards will recognize the leading Transactions, Restructurings, Deal Financings, Products and Services, Firms, and Professionals that affect more than one country market. In addition to celebrating the accomplishments of the top performers of the year, the Awards will recognize the 2017 Lifetime Achievement and Leadership Award winners for their contributions to international dealmaking.

The award finalists will be announced in April 2017 and the winners will be revealed and presented with their awards live at a gala celebration during the 2017 International Financial Forum on June 12, 2017 in New York.
*NEW QUALIFYING CRITERIA*
New this year, we are expanding the range of international deals and professionals that qualify for the awards. While the transaction must have an international element, transactions do not need to be cross border to qualify. And there is no longer the requirement that one of the parties is a US company. Cross Border deals do indeed qualify, but so do deals involving multinational corporations or other international stakeholders, as well as deals that result in enhanced international market presence or capabilities.
  • Minimum value of $10 million USD.
  • Transaction concluded in 2016.
  • Firms, Product/Services, and/or Professionals must have been active internationally in 2016.
AWARDS CATEGORIES
The Awards will be presented in the following category groups:
• M&A Transactions    • Financings       • Regional Deals      • Product/Service
• Restructuring            • Sector Deals    • Professionals        • Firms                  
THE PREMIER INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL FORUM
The awards will be presented at an exclusive Gala Ceremony, held during the 2017 International Financial Forum in New York, NY. This exclusive invitation-only conference, featuring a Faculty of over 50 industry stalwarts and 500 delegates, will include the world’s top dealmakers and other key market experts - academic, media and political leaders, discussing the key issues facing international M&A markets today.
