BG Strategic Advisors Establishes Asia Pacific Office in Singapore: Expansion of the Leading Logistics M&A Advisory Practice Worldwide

SINGAPORE, April 3, 2006 – BG Strategic Advisors, Inc. (BGSA), a leading investment banking and strategy consulting firm focused on the logistics and supply chain industry, today announced the establishment of an office in Singapore to support its expansion of advisory services throughout the Asia Pacific region.

Paul Lim joins BG Strategic Advisors as its Partner for the Asia Pacific Office. Paul has spent more than 12 years in the logistics industry in Asia, working for leading service providers such as YCH, EGL Eagle Global Logistics, and Menlo Worldwide. Paul is also the Founder and President of Supply Chain Asia, a community for Logistics and Supply Chain Professionals to come together to network and share insights about the industry. Paul is expected to play a vital role heading logistics transactions with BG Strategic Advisors in Asia Pacific.

In 2005, BG Strategic Advisors worked on three deals in the Asia Pacific region. With the formation of BG Strategic Advisors’ office in Singapore, BG Strategic Advisors expects to provide M&A advisory services to a growing set of logistics and supply chain companies throughout the region.

“We are committed to Asia Pacific for the long-term, and are pleased to announce the establishment of a formal presence for BG Strategic Advisors on the ground. Our appointment of Paul Lim as a Partner is just the latest in a set of steps we are taking to solidify our foundation here. Over the next few months, we will be recruiting investment banking and supply chain specialists to continue to strengthen our capabilities in the Asia Pacific region,” commented Benjamin Gordon, Managing Director of BG Strategic Advisors. “Paul brings tremendous networking and local knowledge to the team in BG Strategic Advisors. We expect him to contribute tremendously to our platform over the coming years.”

2005 was a record year for BG Strategic Advisors. The firm more than doubled for the fourth year in a row. BGSA worked on such major transactions as the sale of Unicity to PBB Global Logistics, the purchase of Trans-Link by PWC Logistics, the purchase of TransOceanic by PWC Logistics, the purchase of GeoLogistics by PWC Logistics, and various others. As a result, the firm has been expanding rapidly, and is now ideally-positioned for another year of strong growth.
