Mexico City, April 14th, 2016 PC Capital was named a winner of the “Corporate and Strategic Acquisition of the Year” at the 8th Annual International M&A Awards sponsored by The M&A Advisor. PC Capital won the award for its advisory role in First Cash’s acquisition of Maxi Prenda, the operator of 211 full-service pawn stores in Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. First Cash Financial Services, Inc.(NASDAQ: FCFS) is the global leader in the retail pawn industry. PC Capital advised First Cash.
The advisory team for First Cash was led by Luis Coria and Pablo Coballasi, managing directors at PC Capital. “This transaction was especially complex because it involved companies in four different countries. The deal team worked under a lot of pressure to structure and close the transaction. In spite of the challenges, we were able to execute the transaction in record time: just two months,” said Luis.
David Fergusson, co-CEO and president of The M&A Advisor said, “PC Capital represents the best of the crossborder M&A industry in 2015 and earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive candidates.”
