NEW YORK, March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Golub Capital (the "Firm") is pleased to announce it has been named 2016 Lender of the Year; Senior Lender of the Year; BDC of the Year and CLO Manager of the Year for the Americas by Private Debt Investor ("PDI"), a London-based publication covering the private debt and private equity industries.
"The results are in, and Golub Capital has emerged with the biggest haul from our 2016 awards, bagging four categories in the Americas section: lender, senior lender, BDC, and CLO manager," said PDI.
PDI notes, "Golub, which went one better than its three awards in 2015, originated $8.8 billion in new loans in 2016, with roles in the standout PetValu and Qlik debt transactions. It also had a strong fundraising year, with new commitments from investors over 50 percent higher than the previous year and a series of closes on its 10th fund which eventually posted a final close on $1.76 billion in January."
Each year, the PDI Awards acknowledge the best firms and deals in the market. After initial nominations, readers vote on a select group of finalists in each category.
Golub Capital's Middle Market Lending group provides financing for middle market, private equity-backed transactions with hold positions of up to $400 million, and is an arranger of credit facilities up to $750 million. Golub Capital's award winning team strives to establish long-term, win-win partnerships by providing dependable, fast and creative solutions that meet private equity sponsors' and portfolio companies' needs.
"We view these awards as a testament to our shared success model," said David Golub, President of Golub Capital. "We are all about win-win partnerships, working with the same sponsors, lenders and investors over and over. The success we have had with these awards is a reflection of how well that system has been working and how powerful our focus on win-win partnerships can be."
PDI began the awards process last November by shortlisting names for categories across three broad regions: the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Selections by the editorial team were guided by their own market knowledge, many in-depth conversations with market experts and discussions with other editorial colleagues within PEI Media in their New York, London and Hong Kong offices.
