Now in its seventh year, the Awards are the most prestigious recognition for the M&A advisory community in Europe, the Middle East & Africa.
Each year in December, the names of the winning firms and deals are announced at a ceremony and dinner held in London. Winners are selected by the confidential votes of a panel of independent international expert judges, taking into account Mergermarket’s data on European M&A deals.
To share information and collaborate securely and in confidence with its international judging panel, this year the Awards selected Intralinks Dealspace to distribute the confidential submissions from shortlisted firms and the large data packs to the 13 members of the international judging panel, located throughout Europe. The judges were also able to use Intralinks Dealspace to securely return their voting forms. Using Intralinks Dealspace enabled the Awards to share and track the information sent, with the confidence that it was securely delivered only to the intended recipients.
“We’re proud that The Financial Times and Mergermarket European M&A Awards 2013 selected Intralinks Dealspace to securely share confidential information with its international judging panel,” said Philip Whitchelo, vice president of strategy & product marketing at Intralinks. “Maintaining the anonymity of the winners until the Awards are announced is of the utmost importance, and Intralinks Dealspace provided an easy-to-use, secure solution that could be implemented immediately.”
The winners of this year’s awards will be announced at a ceremony on 12 December 2013, hosted at The Savoy in London.www.mergermarket.com/awards.
