A Decade of Results
Every year we pick a few deals to be judged for our transactional excellence by our peers against our competition. For the tenth consecutive year we have been recognized as the top financial advisory firm for transactions in the merger & acquisition, turnaround, recapitalization and distressed transactions in the middle market. This is not an accident. We continue to attract outstanding professionals possessing an indefatigable attitude with business acumen to deliver extraordinary results in the face of uncertainty. For business owners who engage us in their most important transactions, representing often times a life’s work, we continue to deliver unprecedented outcomes. This last November, in front of 300 of our industry peers in New York, we were once again recognized for the industrial deal of the year. We navigated through, in a very short time, a shareholder fight, a failed sale of a division, loan covenant violations, a credit freeze, untimely death of the owner, and a new management team to execute a recapitalization, resulting in a full payout to the incumbent bank seeking to exit, sale to the new management and a financial windfall to the Estate’s college age beneficiaries who were looking at nothing for their father’s work. Many prospects for our services know how to evaluate cost but few understand value. O’Keefe, a value proposition in the face of uncertainty for your most important transaction, only if results matter.
