nominations-hmt-tvda2016The Business Magazine has just shortlisted the finalists for the Thames Valley Deals Awards 2016. Amongst over 600 nominations across the whole Thames Valley, from West Oxfordshire to London, only a few could make it to the finale.

HMT is delighted to be nominated in every category we are eligible for in 2016 including both the Corporate Finance and Due Diligence Teams of the Year and in the Corporate Finance Adviser of the Year and Dealmaker of the Year categories. Deals we led at Whistl and BOFA were shortlisted as Deals of the Year.

The Thames Valley Deals Awards are an important event in the deal-doing calendar and it is one HMT look forward to every year. We have triumphed for nine consecutive years and last year won ‘Corporate Finance Adviser of the Year’.

This year’s winners of each category will be announced at the Gala Awards Night on April 21st at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre in Reading.

In 2016, HMT is proud to have been nominated for both the Corporate Finance Team of the Year and the Due Diligence Team of the Year awards, illustrating our position as the leading transactional team in the Thames Valley.

Andrew Thomson and Ian Barton are 2 of the 5 finalists for the Corporate Finance Adviser of the Year award and they are also both nominated for Dealmaker of the Year.

These nominations reinforce our position as the leading Corporate Finance adviser in the Thames Valley and across the South.

Congratulations!

HMT also would like to congratulate our clients on their nominations:

  • the management team at Property Software Group for their nomination for the Management Team of the Year award; and
  • Whistl and BOFA International for their nominations for Deal of the Year where we sourced, led and advised on their MBOs.

In the last 12 months, we consolidated our position as the leading adviser to entrepreneurial businesses in the Thames Valley, advising on over 30 deals with an aggregate value of over £300 million. In November 2015, HMT were awarded ‘Independent Firm of the Year’ for the South-East region at the prestigious British Accountancy Awards.

We hope to continue our record by securing success for the 10th consecutive year at the Thames Valley Deal Awards and we thank all our clients for their support and nominations, and look forward to continuing to deliver market leading transactions throughout 2016.
