GCA Altium closes successful 2020 with TMT M&A Award win
With 25 qualifying deals – all with a deal value greater than USD 50m – GCA Altium was number one in the league table for technology deals completed during the judging period, ahead of Goldman Sachs, Lazard, Oakley, Citi, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, UBS, JP Morgan and Rothschild.
The TMT M&A Awards win is a fitting close to a successful year for GCA Altium amid the challenging environment. GCA has to date completed over 140 deals globally in 2020 – of these, 75 were advised on by GCA Altium. GCA Altium has a strong focus on growth sectors, and 45 of its transactions this year have been technology-related.
Phil Adams, CEO at GCA Altium, said: “We are delighted to have won the TMT M&A award for the most Technology M&A deals in Europe, ahead of the world’s largest investment banks – this award underscores our leading position in technology M&A. We are also proud of our performance this year – after the inevitable pause in the second quarter due to COVID-19, deal activity levels bounced back, and we have had an incredibly busy second half of the year. Our pipeline for 2021 is at record levels and we are optimistically looking forward to a busy and successful 2021.”
