"Over the course of the past five years, the team at Oberon Securities has been a highly trusted partner of the Select Staffing team", said Steve Sorensen, the company’s CEO. "Oberon’s unwavering focus and commitment to our company and uncompromised advice was an important component in helping Select achieve a successful restructuring that has positioned the company for success going forward."

The transaction cut debt at Select by 46% or about $300 million and was the culmination of a nearly five year advisory engagement between Select and Oberon. The Oberon team on the transaction engagement was led by Adam Breslawsky.

“Since 2002, we have been honoring the leading M&A transactions, companies and dealmakers. Oberon Securities was chosen from over 600 participating companies to receive the award. It gives us great pleasure to recognize Oberon Securities and bestow upon them our highest honor for M&A firms and professionals,” said David Fergusson, Co-CEO and President, The M&A Advisor. “Oberon Securities represents the best of the M&A industry in 2014 and earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive candidates.”
