SierraConstellation Partners Honored at The Global M&A Network’s 2023 Turnaround Atlas Awards
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Global M&A Networkhas announced the winners of the 15th Annual Turnaround Atlas Awards, naming national interim management and advisory firm SierraConstellation Partners (“SCP”) “Boutique Consulting Firm of the Year.”
In addition to the category honor, SCP was also named the winner of “Chapter 11 Restructuring of the Year (Small)” for their work with NewAge, Inc. (“NewAge”), a publicly traded seller of beverages, supplements and other health and wellness products. The awards were presented at the 15th Annual Turnaround Atlas Awards Gala Dinner at the Metropolitan Club in New York.
This is the first time SCP has received recognition as Boutique Consulting Firm of the Year from the Global M&A Network and is an accolade that marks a significant milestone in the firm’s continued growth. Over the past year, SCP has expanded to offer services advising on talent and culture practices as well as launching Emerald Peak Partners, an affiliate of the firm that will bring SCP’s expertise to advise the cannabis industry. This honor is a testament to the firm’s unwavering commitment to excellence and its dedication to surpassing client expectations.
The recognition of Chapter 11 Restructuring of the Year (Small) honors SCP’s work with the board of NewAge at a time of performance challenges for the company, including executive turnover, M&A integration and acute cashflow and liquidity issues. The SCP team, led by CEO Larry Perkins, Managing Director Carl Moore, Senior Director Ben Smith and Director John Halloran, was able to successfully sell NewAge’s social selling business, achieve court approval for the company’s Chapter 11 plan, and place the reorganized company on the path to success.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized by The Global M&A Network as Boutique Consulting Firm of the Year and for our work with the reorganization and credit-bid acquisition of NewAge,” said Perkins. “These awards speak to SCP’s best-in-class work across a wide range of mandates from performance improvement to complex Chapter 11 restructurings. I’m incredibly proud of our SCP team for a year of great work at a time when more boards and management teams are turning to us to help navigate challenging economic times. I’m also thankful to the NewAge board for trusting our teamwork alongside them on such a high-stakes assignment, which showcased our ability to navigate a complex situation on a tight timeline and deliver an excellent result.”
