Mergermarket North America M&A Awards 2021

Virtual Awards Ceremony On-Demand

Celebrating a year in M&A with the best in the business.

On Thursday, June 17, Datasite was a proud sponsor of Mergermarket's inaugural North American M&A Awards 2021 - recognizing excellence in M&A advisory.

Prior to the award announcements, Datasite's Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Corporate Strategy, Doug Cullen, spoke with Mergermarket's Tom Davidson to give further insights on how the pandemic has impacted the deal making process and how technology is playing a large role in streamlining how M&A deals get done.  

The 24 winners were then announced and we congratulate those that were selected across 12 distinct Financial and Legal Advisory categories after a rigorous judging process.  The winners were determined through an analysis of Mergermarket's US and Canada league tables followed by a shortlist announcement and examination by a panel of expert judges.  There was only one winner per category, which means an M&A Award from Mergermarket is true recognition of an outstanding year.

Congratulations to all the winners!  To watch Doug's interview and to see the award announcements, watch the replay on-demand.
