View this release on Yahoo Finance.

Allegiance Capital Corporation, a Dallas, Texas-based middle-market M&A investment bank, has been awarded the “M&A Deal of the Year” by D CEO, a regional magazine that covers emerging entrepreneurs, top CEOs, and a variety of topics affecting North Texas businesses. The fifth annual D CEO Mergers and Acquisitions Awards recognizes companies and dealmakers within its metropolitan area that were involved in some of the most outstanding business transactions.
This year’s M&A Deal of the Year award was presented to dealmaker Derek Woodworth, Managing Director at Allegiance Capital, for the sale of Healthy Natural, Inc. to Rosewood Private Investments.
“I was honored to have been named a Finalist in a category filled with impressive dealmakers and peer investment banks in the region,” said Woodworth. The transaction was a divestiture from RiceBran Technologies, which utilized the proceeds for growth capital while securing Healthy Natural jobs in the Dallas market.  “The transaction was challenging due to an 80% customer concentration,” Woodworth continued.  “But, through our process, we were able to source the right strategic partner, Rosewood Investment Partners, a Dallas-based family office with a platform investment in the category.”
Connie Mahmood, Co-Founder of Allegiance Capital added, “I am very proud that Allegiance Capital and Derek Woodworth are being recognized for attaining the highest levels of achievement within the M&A community. Due to extremely favorable market conditions for sellers [of a business], the current environment for M&A professionals is very competitive. This award is a testament to the Allegiance Capital platform and our exceptional talent executing complex M&A transactions including sell-side mandates, financings, and buy-side acquisitions.”
