Cambodia-based Leopard Capital has been awarded a prestigious “Private Equity Firm of the Year” designation in the 2012 Acquisition International M&A Awards. The award was presented following a 6-month investigation to determine the top Mergers & Acquisitions teams in the world. 

Acquisition International’s Press Release states “The Acquisition International M&A winners have rallied well from boom to bust, they proved resilient and are superb examples of excellence. Key to their success has been, more than ever, the ability to adapt and act creatively in business and their exceptional performance is expected to continue into next year and beyond.”

“During times of economic uncertainty, many fail, however the AI M&A winners have defeated the odds and come into their own.” stated Chief Coordinator or the AI M&A Awards, Kathryn Turner. “The talent, ingenuity and down-right hard work of all of our winners, in what is still a very competitive market, is living proof that good business can still be done.” Turner continued.

“We are honored to receive this distinguished award,” stated Leopard’s CEO and Founder,  Douglas Clayton. “Leopard Capital has worked hard to put Cambodia on the map as an investable economy offering world-class opportunities.  We have been able to structure some innovative transactions here, most of which have been generating favorable returns throughout the global recession.  We remain optimistic about Cambodia’s future even as we expand our business into other developing countries.”
