Jordan Knauff & Company Selected as Finalist for 2019 Equity Financing Deal of the Year
Jordan Knauff & Company (JKC) is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a Finalist for the 2019 Equity Financing Deal of the Year by The M&A Advisor for its work with Energy Distribution Partners (EDP) on the closing of $22.8 million in Subordinated Senior Preferred Equity commitments to continue the support of EDP’s business plan.
During the capital raise process, JKC worked with EDP and its current lenders to: (1) design a new class of security that would be attractive to both current and new investors; (2) preserve the current ownership structure; and (3) maximize the capital flexibility by accepting capital commitments to be drawn at EDP’s discretion. JKC targeted a specific network of family offices, high net worth individuals, and small and mid-size insurance companies to raise the required commitments.
EDP has built its reputation as a creative, flexible and responsive buyer of retail propane distribution operating assets which has led to additional acquisition opportunities across the energy sector. The additional equity commitments will empower the Company to continue aggressive implementation of its business plan.
All Finalists for the 18th Annual M&A Advisor Awards were selected by an independent panel of judges from a pool of qualified nominees. Other finalists in the Equity Financing Deal of the Year category include the following:
- Majority Recapitalization of DistroKid by Silversmith Capital and Spotify

- Series E Financing of Marqeta led by Coatue Management
- Series A Minority Financing of Checkout.com led by Insight, DST, GIC, Ribbit and Blossom Capital
