Seneca and sister company Acceleris Capital Limited have reason to celebrate this morning following two victories at the Insider North West Dealmaker Awards 2015.
Acceleris Capital’s Simon Thorn won the prestigious Young Dealmaker of the Year 2015. Simon was recognised for his work in a number of early stage transactions over the past year, including the £15m IPO of Redx Pharma Limited, the merger of EveryCloud Computing and Vapour Media and successfully administering the spin-out of Redag Crop Limited. Simon is based in the Manchester office of Acceleris Capital and also assists with the Seneca EIS Portfolio Service.
The second award was presented to Acceleris Capital and Baker Tilly for ‘AIM Deal of the Year 2015’ for the IPO of Redx Pharma Limited. The Acceleris and Seneca EIS Portfolio company was admitted to AIM in March 2015 at a market cap of £55.2m. The company was incorporated in 2010 with fundraising assistance from Acceleris Capital, the Manchester based Corporate Finance Boutique, and now provides approximately 160 jobs across the North West.
The awards celebrate the very best in the region’s dealmaking community and saw just under 1000 people of the regions industry professionals gather at Manchester Central Convention Centre for the event.
Seneca Partners would like to extend congratulations to all winners at yesterday evenings ceremony.
