Toronto, ON – May 9, 2016
For the second time in 3 years, GreenSky has been awarded one of the coveted Private Capital Markets Association of Canada (“PCMA”) Deal of the Year Awards.
GreenSky was awarded the 2016 PCMA Technology Deal of the Year Award for its work with Mirexus Biotechnologies Inc., a Guelph, Ontario based company that produces Phytospherix™, the world’s first safe and natural monodisperse nanomaterial. Phytospherix is a polysaccharide nanoparticle that can be used in a wide variety of markets, ranging from cosmetics to nutraceuticals to biomedical applications in animal and human health.
The PCMA Awards are the only national industry awards for private capital markets professionals, which recognize business leaders who help build vibrant and successful private capital markets in Canada. The PCMA Technology Deal of the Year Award is only one of 6 awards given out in 2016. “We are thrilled with this recognition and are very fortunate to again be honoured by the PCMA”, said Greg Stewart, a principle at GreenSky Capital Inc. and the Chairman of the Mirexus board of directors.
Nominees are evaluated based on their leadership in the industry, their contribution to the deal, innovative market, product or investment opportunities created, the benefits of the deal for the issuer and for investors, and the overall impact of the deal on the quality and integrity of the private capital markets. The award selection committee is comprised of independent members of the PCMA and its national Board of Directors.
