The M&A Mid-Market Award Winners Outpace the Competition

The Riverside Co., led by co-CEOs Bela Szigethy and Stewart Kohl, completed an impressive 19 portfolio-company sales, and delivered one of the largest returns on a deal since the firm's founding in 1988.
PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG), guided by CEO Charles Bunch, spent $2.3 billion to acquire Consorcio Comex SA and another $1 billion on four middle-market targets, as the paints and coating business consolidates.
Piper Jaffray & Co. (NYSE: PJC), led by CEO Andrew Duff, more than doubled its deal volume and value, thanks to two acquisitions the bank made the previous year.
GE Capital, the lending business of General Electric (NYSE: GE), added a new unit and increased the number of loans for PE platform acquisitions, according to Stuart Aronson, CEO of GE Sponsor Finance.
