HNH Group was again named ‘Corporate Finance Advisory Team of the Year’ at the annual Insider Northern Ireland Dealmakers Awards in front of an audience of over 300 at the La Mon Hotel & Country Club in Belfast last night.
For a fourth year, HNH, which celebrates only its fifth anniversary this year, beat strong and
long-established competition to win the award which recognises the achievements of those individuals and firms whose skill, creativity and sheer determination have stood out over the past year.
Led by Directors Craig Holmes and Wayne Horwood, HNH’s Corporate Finance team provides long-term financial strategies for private companies, private equity funds and financial institutions. The company advises on all aspects of corporate finance including mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and company sales through to management buy-outs (MBOs) and fundraising.
HNH was singled out for their work on numerous deals in the region in the last year, including advising on the sale of Nelson Hydraulics to Flowtech Fluidpower plc, refinancing for Keys Group and the high profile acquisitions of Boojum and four titles from Greer Publications by Independent News & Media.
Craig Holmes says: “To receive this award for four out of the five years we have been in business is a great honour. It recognises the achievements and excellent work done by the team over the last year. It’s also testament to the drive and ambition of the clients with whom we work and we’re very pleased to be singled out for helping them to achieve their goals.”
The award comes at a time of continued growth for HNH Group which, in addition to corporate finance, provides business restructuring, forensics, digital consultancy and human capital services. In 2015, the company welcomed Gerry McGinn, previously Managing Director of First Trust Bank and Chief Executive of Irish Nationwide and Bank of Ireland, as Chairman.
