O’Keefe Named Winner at 14th Annual M&A Awards

November 18, 2015

O’Keefe has been named the winner of the Industrial Goods & Basic Resources Deal of the Year by the M&A Advisor for their work done with LC Manufacturing.  For the tenth consecutive year, O’Keefe has been recognized as the top financial advisory firm for transactions in the merger & acquisition, turnaround, recapitalization, and distressed transactions in the middle market.

For this deal O’Keefe quickly navigated through a shareholder dispute, a failed sale of a division, loan covenant violations, a credit freeze, untimely death of the owner, and a new management team.  O’Keefe executed a recapitalization resulting in a full payout to the incumbent bank seeking to exit, a sale to the new management, and a financial windfall to the Estate’s beneficiaries.

“We are your partner for success.  Our team of outstanding professionals has an indefatigable attitude with business acumen to deliver extraordinary results in challenging situations.  For business owners who engage us we continue to deliver unprecedented outcomes,” said Pat O’Keefe, Founder and CEO of O’Keefe.  “O’Keefe is a value proposition in the face of uncertainty for your most important transaction.”

Since 1998, The M&A Advisor has been recognizing the achievement of and facilitating connections between the world’s leading mergers and acquisitions, financing and turnaround professionals.
