Rules

Award submission can be a turnaround, a transaction, or a composite of the two. Turnaround or Transaction needs to be closed in 2021. Cases will be judged on both the turnaround and transactional elements. However, the deal does not need to have both components to be eligible.

For the turnaround aspect, please describe the improvements to a business by implementing effective operations, establishing solid management, generating positive cash flow, or effecting other operational enhancements leading to recovery of a struggling business.

For the transactional aspect, please describe the orchestration of a non-operational restructuring, including merger and acquisition, sale, loan, liquidation, debt restructuring, or other capital reorganization, to preserve value in a struggling business. 

Questions? Contact awards@turnaround.org.

FAQs

 

 

How does the process work?

After we receive the applications, the Awards Committee holds a series of meetings to determine which submissions will win an award in each category. We aspire to have a list of winners that represent each of the categories for Turnaround and Transaction.  

When do nominations begin?

The submission window opened on May 18, 2022. The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2022.

Do I have to disclose the company name for the turnaround/transaction I am nominating? 

Yes, confidential entries are not permitted due to the diligence process employed by the Awards Committee, and the subsequent marketing and recognition process carried out by TMA Global.

Does the turnaround have to start in 2021 and end in 2021 or 2022?

The application is only for deals completed in 2021. 

Can I contact you to see how my submission is doing in the judging process?

No. We will not provide status reports. Should we need any additional information, we will contact the nominee or nominator.

What is required of those who are selected? 

Complete release form, which requires the submission of a headshot and company logo. A minimum of one winner from a winning engagement should register and attend the 2022 TMA Annual Conference in Boston in order to receive an award.
