Ravinia Capital LLC, a special situation investment bank that focuses on challenging corporate finance and M&A transactions for middle market companies, is proud to announce that its founder and Managing Director, Tom Goldblatt, has been awarded the Distressed Dealmaker of the Year by the 8th Annual M&A Advisor Turnaround Awards.
The award recognizes several successful transactions completed by Ravinia Capital during the year, including the restructuring and sale of a large national staffing company, Employment Plus, which faced a severe liquidity trap due to the overhang of delinquent tax liabilities. Working hand-in-hand with a restructuring firm that had been brought in to help with the sale of the company, Ravinia Capital, under Mr. Goldblatt’s leadership, successfully sold the firm to a strategic buyer, EmployBridge. Ravinia’s role included structuring the transaction, providing advisory services, overseeing the marketing of the Company, and managing the negotiations, due diligence and final closing stages of the transaction, which was completed on October 21, 2013.
Mr. Goldblatt will receive his award from the M&A Advisor at a black tie Awards Gala on Tuesday, March 11 at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, FL, in conjunction with the 2014 M&A Advisor Distressed Investing Summit.
