ith double-digit growth in revenue and profits, 2016 was another record year for our firm.
Our capital markets business almost doubled, advising clients in the largest transactions and initial public offerings in Germany and Europe. Thanks to our newly-created global strategic partnership with Finsbury, our world-class capability to advise on cross-border mandates has become another strong competitive advantage.
Together we have formed a globally-leading strategic communications advisory supporting our clients in mission-critical situations covering all important markets in Europe, the UK, the US and Asia.

We strengthened our dominant market leader position in Germany and remained No.1 in the Mergermarket rankings in value and volume, now for 13 consecutive years. We also boosted our business in CEO transitions, corporate crises and public affairs with a strong digital transformation offering as a cross-function for all our mandates.
In May, The Holmes Report named us again EMEA Consultancy of the Year 2016.
