The M&A Atlas Awards are the world's most prestigious independent industry awards to exclusively honor excellence in the categories of best value-creating deals, top teams, outstanding firms and exceptional leaders. Brent Earles and Fred McCallister, managing directors of Allegiance Capital Corporation, received U.S.A. Private Equity Deal of the Year in Large Mid Markets for their work on the acquisition of 4G Wireless and A-Z Wireless from Atlantic Street Capital by Lone Star Funds. Brent Earles then also received Investment Banker of the Year.
"We had the unique privilege of being involved in Atlantic Street Capital's original platform acquisition of Z Wireless, eight of the subsequent add-on acquisitions, and Atlantic Street's exit of their investment which was concurrent with the acquisition of 4G Wireless," remarked Fred McCallister in reference to this year's award.
"This deal would not have been possible without the hard work and financial engineering of Andy Wilkins. We are honored to receive this award and continue to be very active in the wireless retailer space," added Brent Earles.
Dealmaker of the Year awards are presented to professionals from the advisory industry per the individual track-record, expertise as well as for outstanding transactions completed during the past 12 months involving counterparties from the North or the South Americas.
Winning the M&A Atlas Awards equates to achieving the highest "Gold Standard of Performance" seal of endorsement and validation locally/regionally since the winners are selected independently based on the deal performance criteria, expertise, clients served and leadership.
