Tonight, the 19th of February 2013, the much-anticipated DealMakers Annual Gala Awards Dinner takes place in Johannesburg to recognise the achievements of South Africa corporate finance teams for performance in 2012.

Sage is proud to be involved for this first time this year, through sponsorship of the award for the best reporting accounting team by deal value and deal flow.  DealMakers, the premier corporate finance journal, has been in operation since 2000 and has hosted the Awards since March 2002.

DealMakers tracks the Merger and Acquisition activity of JSE listed companies, as well as the General Corporate Finance transactions undertaken by South African firms. Through a series of analyses and calculations, they then list who worked on the biggest value of deals and the largest number of deals.  There are 4 categories of advisers: Investment Advisers, Sponsors, Legal Advisers and Reporting Accountants to which 60 trophies are awarded.

The Sage team will be in attendance at the awards tonight and we hope you’ll visit the blog tomorrow to see images and information on the winners.
