White and Williams Wins Materials Deal of the Year at 18th Annual M&A Advisor Awards
The M&A Advisor announced the winners of the 18th Annual M&A Advisor Awards on Tuesday, November 19th at the 2019 M&A Advisor Awards Gala to a jubilant, sold-out crowd at the New York Athletic Club in New York City. White and Williams' Financial Restructuring and Bankruptcy team, led by Heidi Sorvino, has been named a winner in the Materials Deal of the Year category.
White and Williams represented RADG Holdings, a stalking horse bidder that was ultimately the successful purchaser of the Robert Allen Duralee Group, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February of 2019. RADG's $19 million bid was approved by debtors in April, effectively canceling an open auction for higher bids. The acquired business is the second largest supplier of decorative fabrics and furniture to the design industry in the United States.
“Since 2002, we have been honoring the leading M&A transactions, companies and dealmakers. White and Williams was chosen from over 500 participating companies to receive the award. It gives us great pleasure to recognize White and Williams and bestow upon them our highest honor for M&A firms and professionals,” said Roger Aguinaldo, Founder, the M&A Advisor. White and Williams represents the best of the M&A industry in 2019 and earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive candidates.”
The Gala is the premier celebration of the year for the industry’s leading M&A Dealmakers and was held in conjunction with the 2019 M&A Advisor Summit “The Future of Finance” that featured the industry’s leading M&A professionals participating in exclusive interactive forums led by M&A, media, academic, and industry stalwarts.
