Bergen & Parkinson will receive the “Distressed M&A Deal of the Year ($100mil-$250mil)” award at the M&A Advisor’s 13th Annual Turnaround Awards Gala for the firm’s role in restructuring Legacy Supply Chain Holdings, Inc. – a multi-national supply chain and logistics company. The awards ceremony will be held in Palm Beach in March.
Attorney Jason G. Howe – a partner in the firm’s business services group – worked alongside company executives and consultants from G2 Capital Advisors, located in Boston, MA. Howe will continue to serve both as leasing counsel and outside general counsel for the company.
“Jason was great to work with on our two-plus years together on the project,” said Jim Wiesen, Managing Director of G2 Capital and Legacy’s interim CFO during the deal. “Jason was a trusted advisor who consistently offered wise counsel and helped us work through many challenges and understand risks and options available to us throughout the deal.”
Bergen & Parkinson provided both seller-side corporate guidance through the disclosure and acquisition process, and also spent substantial time restructuring and/or renegotiating numerous leases, master service agreements, and supply contracts to strengthen the financial position of the Company.
The nominations, representing over 275 participating companies, were judged by an independent jury of industry experts.
“The award winners represent the best of the distressed investing and reorganization industry in 2018 and earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive candidates,” said Roger Aguinaldo, Founder of The M&A Advisor. “In an environment that is increasingly demanding of its professionals we have recognized the leading transactions, firms and individuals that represent the highest levels of performance.”
