Turnaround and Transaction of the Year Awards

TMA TURNAROUND AND TRANSACTION OF THE YEAR AWARDS

The Turnaround and Transaction of the Year Awards are the most prestigious awards in the industry. 

Recipients of this distinguished honor showcase what TMA members do best -- find value where it was lacking, maximize productivity and profitability in seemingly defunct businesses, and perhaps most importantly, save jobs. The Turnaround and Transaction Awards are chosen based on a rigorous peer-review process. The Awards Committee is carefully composed to represent the diversity of the TMA Membership. As the judges review all components of the entry, they look for well-defined, measurable outcomes. The selection process spans over four months and each committee member is fully dedicated to finding the best 2019 Turnaround and Transaction Award winners!

Turnaround of the Year Award
The Turnaround of the Year Award recognizes the individuals who improve business by implementing effective operations, establishing solid management, generating positive cash flow, or affecting other operational enhancements (typically outside of a court process) leading to the recovery of a struggling business.

Turnaround entries include the following categories listed below:

  • Small Company Turnaround (company revenue at the time of turnaround was less than $50 million USD)
  • Mid-Size Company Turnaround (company revenue at the time of turnaround was $50 million to $299 million USD) 
  • Large Company Turnaround (company revenue at the time of turnaround was $300 million to $1 billion USD) 
  • Mega Company Turnaround (company revenue at the time of turnaround was at least $1 billion USD) 
  • International Company Turnaround (a company with significant cross-border operations) 
  • Pro Bono Turnaround (no fees in exchange for services); entry must demonstrate financial stability 
  • Non-Profit Turnaround (a tax-exempt organization without shareholders that uses its surplus net assets to achieve its mission)

Transaction of the Year Award
The Transaction of the Year Award recognizes the individuals who orchestrate a non-operational restructuring, including merger and acquisition, sale, loan, liquidation, debt restructuring, or other capital reorganization (typically within a court process), to preserve value in a struggling business.
