London, UK, November 25, 2014 — Intralinks® Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading, global SaaS provider of enterprise content collaboration solutions, today announced that the Mergermarket European M&A Awards 2014 (the Awards), which recognize achievement and excellence in European mergers and acquisitions (M&A) by the M&A advisory community, has selected Intralinks VIA® for its secure information sharing needs.
Now in its eighth year, the Awards are the most prestigious recognition for the M&A advisory community in Europe. 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, who rely on written pitches from shortlisted firms and Mergermarket’s league table data for M&A deals involving European targets or acquirers.
"The judging process requires the panel to review a lot of sensitive information about deals upon which shortlisted firms have advised," said Matthew Robinson, events director at Mergermarket. "Intralinks VIA gave us the confidence to easily share that information with our judges based all across Europe in a secure manner, allaying our fears that the information could mistakenly end up in the wrong hands."
To share information and collaborate securely with its international judging panel, this year the Awards selected Intralinks VIA to distribute the shortlisted firms’ confidential submissions and large data packs to the 15 members of the international judging panel, located throughout Europe. The judges were also able to use Intralinks VIA to securely return their voting forms. Intralinks VIA enabled the Awards to share and track the information sent, with the confidence that it was delivered securely to only the intended recipients.
"We’re proud that the Mergermarket European M&A Awards 2014 selected Intralinks VIA to securely share sensitive information with its international judging panel," said Philip Whitchelo, vice president of strategy & product marketing at Intralinks. "Maintaining the confidentiality of the winners until the Awards are announced is of the utmost importance, and Intralinks VIA 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 11 December 2014, hosted at The Savoy in London. www.mergermarket.com/awards.
