Curtis M&A Deal Honored with 2015 International M&A Award

The sale of Cardiff Holdings Corp.'s subsidiaries, Shoreline and Source One Direct, to Gemalto was announced as the winner of the Financial Services Deal of the Year, a Cross-Border Sector Deal of the Year category, at the 7th Annual International M&A Awards.

Curtis represented Cardiff, which sold two of its subsidiaries in April 2014 to Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, enabling Gemalto to extend its product offerings in the secure and personalized card services market space and establish a significant presence in the U.S. market. The Curtis team was led by M&A partner Lawrence Goodman and associates Douglas Glazer and Adena Schutzman.

This deal was also honored in 2014 with the Financial Tech & Services Deal of the Year (under $1 billion) at the Americas M&A Atlas Awards. The 2015 International M&A Awards Gala, hosted by the M&A Advisor at the New York Athletic Club on April 28, concluded the International Financial Forum. The awards recognize the leading cross-border transactions, restructurings, deal financings and deal makers.
