Daiwa wins two awards from Finance Asia

2 April 2013

Daiwa has continued its winning start to the year with two awards from Finance Asia in its Japan Achievement Awards 2012: Best Deals.

In the best IPO category, Japan Airlines’ USD8.5 billion global offering, on which Daiwa acted as global coordinator, came top, adding to the overall acclaim for this transaction, including a recent award from AsiaMoney. In the Best Domestic M&A category, Daiwa was also recognised for its role in Nippon Steel’s merger with Sumitomo Metal Industries.

Finance Asia editors selected the best capital markets, M&A and financing transactions in Japan during 2012 for these awards, for which full details will be available in its April 2013 edition. The magazine was established in 1996 and covers Asian capital and banking markets.
