New York, NY - January 15th, 2010: Corporate Solutions Group, LLC (CSG), a New York-based boutique
investment bank, announces that 2009 was a record year for the firm, despite the nation's economic
downturn. The firm closed fourteen transactions, including leveraged ESOPs, capital raises, and M&A
Larry Kaplan, the founder and Managing Director of CSG, commented, "We are proud of the firm's track record of success and continued growth. With the softening M&A market, we have seen increasing interest from business owners and financial sponsors on using ESOPs as an exit strategy. With the deal
volume we have seen so far, 2010 should be another record year for our firm."
In 2009, CSG closed transactions across the country, from Honolulu to Atlanta to New York.
