Brown Gibbons Lang & Company Nominated for Three M&A Advisor Awards

Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (“BGL”), a leading investment banking firm serving middle-market companies, today announced that its corporate finance advisory work has been nominated for three M&A Advisor Awards.

“We are very proud that our work is nominated in three of the five M&A Advisor major award categories. Each of these transactions was of vital importance to our clients. Recognition of the results is very gratifying,” said Michael Gibbons, BGL senior managing director and principal.

BGL-assisted transactions were nominated in these categories:

U.S. Middle Market Deal of the Year — BGL advised Advanced Lighting Technologies, Inc., a publicly traded major manufacturer of halide lighting products, in a major corporate reorganization that allowed the firm to exit Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, strengthen its balance sheet and dedicate new resources to expanding its markets.

International / Cross-Border Deal of the Year — BGL advised Rockford, Illinois-based machine tool maker Ingersoll International, Inc. in maximizing the value of its international holdings while successfully exiting from the ailing U.S. machine tool market.

Turnaround Deal of the Year — BGL advised Corrpro Companies, Inc., the world’s leading provider of corrosion control engineering services, in recapitalizing the company, renegotiating its loan agreements with its existing bank group, divesting two companies and managing other complex domestic and international financial transactions.

“Each of these transactions yielded significant financial value to our clients and demanded the most of our bankers,” said Scott Lang, BGL senior managing director and principal.

The M&A Advisor, a leading journal serving the investment banking industry, will present the awards in New York City on December 13. For more information, please click here.
