The International M&A Awards Gala honored the leading companies, advisors and other deal intermediaries whose activities set the standard for cross border transactions. This year, 260 companies were finalists for the awards. Nominees were judged by an independent committee of cross border industry experts. Judges scored companies based on the profile of the deal, challenges encountered and overall strategic benefits provided by the transaction.   

"The Coperion acquisition allows the company to substantially diversify our business portfolio, expand our global footprint, and enhance our future growth potential," said Scott George, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development at Hillenbrand. "We are encouraged by our investors' reaction to this transaction and appreciate the third-party recognition of this highly coveted award."

Coperion, a worldwide market and technology leader in compounding and extrusion, material handling and service, was Hillenbrand's fourth acquisition since 2008 and further strengthens the company's global Process Equipment Group platform. The Process Equipment Group is a recognized leader in the design, production, marketing and servicing of equipment and systems used in processing applications for a wide range of industrial markets.

Since the spin-off from Hillenbrand Industries in 2008, Hillenbrand has evolved from a single operating company, Batesville Casket, with $678 million in annual revenue to five operating companies generating an estimated $1.6 billion in revenue in fiscal year 2013. Along with Coperion, the Process Equipment Group companies include K-Tron, Rotex and TerraSource Global.

Since 1988, The M&A Advisor has been presenting, recognizing the achievement of and facilitating connections between the world's leading mergers and acquisitions, financing and turnaround professionals with a comprehensive range of services. In 2002, The M&A Advisor also began honoring the top companies, dealmakers and M&A transac­tions during their annual awards program.
