Due to a flurry of post-deadline submissions, ASR has extended the deadline for Deal of the Year nominations through Nov. 30, 2004. Qualifications for entry remain the same, with the exception of the transaction closing date, which has also been moved to Nov. 30. To be eligible, a deal must have closed between Nov. 1, 2003 and Nov. 30, 2004.
As of Nov. 18, ASR had received 17 nominations in the various categories, and welcomes as many as possible. Transactions may be nominated by any party associated with the deal, but the award goes to the issuer.
The winners of each category will now be announced in the Jan. 10 issue of ASR. The winners in each category will then become the finalists for the overall Global Achievement and Innovation in Securitization award, which will be honored at an awards dinner to be held in conjunction with IMN at its ABS West 2005 conference, taking place in Phoenix, February 9, 2005.
