From the Desk of Ryan Binkley, President & CEO of Generational Equity – September 2018

By Generational Group


Hello and welcome to our September 2018 eNewsletter!

Recently The M&A Advisor announced the finalists for their 2018 M&A Advisor Awards. These prestigious awards are distributed annually and we were very pleased to learn that our firm is a finalist in 15 different categories, including the coveted Investment Banking Firm of the Year and Valuation Firm of the Year (both of which we have won on several occasions over the years).

The M&A Advisor awards are peer-to-peer awards, meaning that leading participants in our industry are distinguishing their counterparts for the work they do. This makes these nominations even more special because we are being recognized as M&A leaders by our fellow exit planning colleagues.

But as pleased as I am by these nominations, what gives me greater joy is knowing that over the years we have helped our clients create over $4 billion in wealth, building financial legacies for them and their families for decades to come.

Keep in mind that Generational Equity is always here to assist with your exit journey. Over the past decade we are both privileged and proud to have helped more lower middle market companies (those with valuations up to $100 million) successfully exit their businesses than any other M&A advisory firm in North America. In 2017 alone we helped transfer nearly $700 million in wealth to our clients and, as mentioned earlier, we recently passed the $4 billion mark in wealth creation for our clients.

Our Dealmakers are skilled and experienced in negotiating within our vast buyer network and we are ready to meet with you to discuss your personal goals and objectives.

Please reach out to us if you are interested in attending another exit planning conference or if you prefer a face-to-face private meeting with one of our M&A professionals to discuss your options. We believe that it is vital for business owners to develop exit strategies that will protect and defend the significant equity they have built into their businesses. We are passionate about assisting our clients in this process and helping them make confident, informed decisions.

So please call us at 972-232-1121 or send an email to: if you would like information about a conference in your area or if you would like to meet with us one-on-one. If you would like to find a conference near you, use this link.
