The M&A Network Atlas Awards celebrate the superior value-creating deals, firms, and dealmakers in the international corporate, investor, and transactional industries. These prestigious awards are given to firms and individuals that meet the Gold Standards of Performance in various categories.

MelCap is grateful to have been nominated at the 15th Annual Global M&A Network Atlas Awards this week. We were delighted to be among the best firms and dealmakers celebrated during this event, and we are thrilled to have brought home two awards for the MelCap team.

Albert D. Melchiorre Was Awarded the Leadership Achievement Award

Our founder Albert D. Melchiorre was honored with the Leadership Achievement Award at the 15th Annual Global M&A Network Atlas Awards. His outstanding leadership abilities and vision have been crucial to all aspects of our client engagements and the success of our firm. Congratulations to Al on this monumental award.

MelCap Was Awarded America’s Deal of the Year for the Kid Works – Busy Bees Acquisition

Kid Works Creative Learning Centers provides comprehensive child care to infants and toddlers as well as children in preschool and prekindergarten. In 2023, MelCap fostered the acquisition of Kid Words by BrightPath Early Learning, a division of Busy Bees — the largest childcare service provider in Ireland, Malaysia, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. This acquisition is key to Busy Bees’ growth and expansion of childcare services throughout North America.

This deal was awarded America’s Deal of the Year, and we are very proud of the wonderful services it will bring to communities all across the country. We hope to continue fostering relationships such as these and congratulate all of the individuals who had a hand in this acquisition.

Congratulations to the MelCap Team

With 2023 being such a successful year, we can’t wait to see what 2024 brings. Congratulations to our team on their hard work and success this year, and congratulations to all of the nominees and winners.
