Deal of the Year (Formerly Known as Investor of the Year)
This category will award the single most impressive overall M&A deal announced in 2022 celebrating an investor group, private equity firm or management team. The MTC judging panel will look for transactions that were first movers in their markets, overcame overwhelming obstacles, set the tone for a market or laid a template for future transactions. Deciding factors may include challenging dealmaking dynamics (including cross-border or multiparty issues, or regulatory, shareholder, political or other complexities) or innovative approaches or solutions. Additional selection criteria will include factors such as transaction accomplishments, and impact on market share, industry, and impact in Maryland.
