Generational’s Brenen Hofstadter was a faculty panelist for the 2012 M&A China Connects conference hosted by The M&A Advisor and International M&A Award recipient.

NEW YORK CITY, OCT 11, 2012 / -- Generational Capital Markets won the 2012 International M&A Award for its sale of Tarasoft to CoreLogic, as professional services deal of the year, by The M&A Advisor at the 4th Annual International M&A Advisor Awards Gala held at the New York Athletic Club on Wednesday Oct. 10, 2012.

The Generational team that completed the Tarasoft deal was lead by Brenen Hofstadter, MBA, CM&AA, President of Generational Capital Markets, and Chris Heckert, Vice President. Mr. Hofstadter was also a faculty panelist for the 2012 M&A China Connects conference, hosted by The M&A Advisor the day before the awards gala. Mr. Hofstadter stated “Cross-border deals like the sale of Tarasoft (British Columbia) to Corelogic (California) are becoming a larger portion of our firm’s total mix, and we expect this trend to continue. Five of my team’s last ten deals have included a foreign buyer or seller, including the sale of a client company to Konica Minolta Business Services, Tokyo, in August of 2012.”

"To be recognized by our peers for our international work is a real honor," stated Ryan Binkley, President of Generational Equity. "It is a testament to our team’s effort to increase our brand globally and bring foreign buyers to our client companies. We thank the The M&A Advisor for their recognition.”

"The award winners represent the best of the M&A industry in 2011 and earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive finalists," said Roger Aguinaldo, CEO and Founder of The M&A Advisor. "From the lower middle market transaction to the multi-billion Deal of the Year, we are recognizing the leading transactions, firms and individuals that represent the highest levels of performance."
An independent body of expert judges that span the M&A industry determined the ultimate recipients of the awards. Winners were revealed "Academy-Award style" at the gala.
