NEW YORK, March 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Golub Capital is pleased to announce it has been named 2014 Lender of the Year, Americas and 2014 Unitranche Lender of the Year, Americas by Private Debt Investor ("PDI"), a global independent publication based in London, covering the private debt and private equity industries.
Golub Capital employs unmatched reliability, innovation and expertise with its private equity clients to be the leader in middle market lending, according to PDI. Golub Capital's lending activity in 2014, the strongest year in its history, was one of the contributing factors to being voted winner in these categories. PDI writes of the award win, "By the end of 2014, Golub had lent $2 billion more than the year before, a huge increase with a commensurate boost in flexibility and deal size (which ranged from $15 million to $410 million)."
"We would like to thank PDI, and all our colleagues and investors who cast a vote in the award process. We are greatly honored by the recognition and will continue to provide best in class reliability and partnership," said Andy Steuerman, Head of Middle Market Lending. "We would also like to commend the other nominees in our categories, Ares Management, Ares/GE, GSO Capital Partners and KKR."
PDI began the awards process last November by shortlisting names for the 37 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.
