Future Materials Group advisory work has been recognised a second time by being awarded ‘Dealmaker of the Year 2013’ winner by Finance Monthly, for the successful completion of the growth capital investment by DPE Deutsche Private Equity (DPE) in SLM Solutions GmbH (SLM)

These annual awards have earned a reputation as the industry standard for corporate, private equity, M&A and strategic advisory expertise, and recognise the most impressive transactions across a range of sectors and geographies.

As advisor to SLM Solutions, FMG worked closely with its owners to define the company’s growth strategy, and then design, launch and manage the capital raise; this included corporate finance strategy, valuation, preparation of the investment memorandum, investor communications and negotiations and due diligence. The investment by DPE was completed in early 2013.

Commenting on this second award, FMG managing directors Adrian Williams and David Schofield said: “As a firm we work very hard to provide thoughtful and high quality advice to our clients, and we’re delighted that this successful fundraising deal was recognised with this established award”.
