SunTrust Robinson Humphrey Named 2016 U.S. Mid-Market Equity House of the Year by International Financing Review

Dec 21, 2016

ATLANTA – SunTrust Robinson Humphrey (STRH) has been named 2016 U.S. Mid-Market Equity House of the Year by the International Financing Review (IFR). Each year, the IFR Americas Awards recognize the outstanding capital markets achievement in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America. 

This award is a result of the tremendous growth in capabilities and focus on the middle market by STRH. In 2012, STRH took part in 40 equity underwritings that year, but served as bookrunner on only four of those transactions.

In 2016, STRH was the bookrunner on 29 of the 90 deals on which it served as underwriter. This activity included serving as a joint bookrunner on the initial public offerings for American Renal Associates, Cotiviti Holdings, Extraction Oil & Gas, and Athene Holding. Additionally, STRH acted as the lead left bookrunner on follow-on offerings for Ring Energy and Earthstone Energy and active bookrunner on equity-linked offerings for Tutor Perini Corp and Goldman Sachs BDC.

Additionally, corporate & investment banking has strategically grown through the build out of the equity capital markets platform with deep industry knowledge, while also investing in research capabilities. In 2013, STRH had 20 analysts covering fewer than 200 companies; today it has 39 analysts who follow more than 700 names.

“Leveraging our industry expertise to help our clients achieve smart growth is what differentiates us from our peers,” said John N. Gregg, chairman, president and CEO of STRH. “This award is recognition of the collective work of our teammates, and the value our clients place on our deep capabilities and middle market focus.”

The presentation of the 2016 IFR Americas Awards will take place at the Thomson Reuters building, in New York on February 7, 2017. Read IFR’s full article about STRH’s growth here.
