ACP’s Acquisition of ETC Recognized as ‘Deal of the Year’

Align Capital Partners’ (“ACP”) was awarded ‘Deal of the Year’ in the midsize deal category for its acquisition of Electronic Transaction Consultants (“ETC” or the “Company”) by D CEO magazine as part of their 2021 Mergers & Acquisitions Awards program.  Together with the Association for Corporate Growth, D CEO recognizes top business transactions that positively benefit North Texas.  This year marks the eight consecutive year of the program.

ACP acquired ETC in July of last year to further invest in the Company’s technology and team to create a more robust Mobility-as-a-Service platform in the heart of Dallas-Forth Worth, with a focus on parking, intelligent traffic controls, and mass transit.  ACP’s advisors included McGuireWoods and BDO.  ETC was represented by Sheppard Mullin in the transaction.
