TMT M&A Awards 2018 announced to celebrate standout deal making amidst TMT investment boom
By: TMT Finance
"We have been tracking significant M&A activity in key verticals such as telecoms infrastructure, broadcast media and software, which have all been extremely active. Valuation multiples are sky high in certain segments, and M&A executives and advisers are under pressure to justify investment strategies and compete in a fiercely competitive landscape," said Ben Nice, Managing Editor and Events Director at TMT Finance, the event organiser. "The TMT M&A Awards 2018 is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the brave and innovative investment activity and benchmark the most successful strategy, legal and financing transaction advisers."
TMT M&A Awards 2018 will be presented to the leading industry CEOs, CFOs and Heads of M&A, Investment Bankers, Lawyers and Merger and Acquisition Advisers in TMT at the Hilton London Bankside, London on November 27 at a Black-Tie Gala Dinner.
"Each award will be judged by a panel of the leading TMT finance and advisory executives and presented to the most exciting and challenging deals. We will also announce our TMT M&A League Tables which will reward those advisers and banks acting on successful transactions in Telecom, Media and Tech," said Nice. "There have been some outstandingly complex and impressive deals announced already, and I am sure competition for awards this year will be fierce," he said.
Nominations opened on June 1 and close on September 28, with Shortlists announced on October 10.
