HEC Advisory Awards 2021

26 May 2021

On Wednesday 12 May, the 2021 edition of the HEC Advisory Awards took place. Just like last year’s edition, the event was held virtually and turned out to be a great success once again.

The HEC Advisory Awards is a competition organised by HEC Advisory and powered by BDO, for HEC students as a part of their course “Analysis of financial statements and financing of a company” taught by Wouter Torsin. This year, about 240 people attended the online challenge and four student teams took part in the competition. The companies that were analysed this year were two restaurants (located in Awans and Nandrin) from The Huggy’s Bar, a Belgian restaurant chain of gourmet burgers. The two founders of The Huggy’s Bar were part of the jury as well.  

Like every year, the presentations of the financial analysis were followed by an M&A debate between students in which they had to defend the position of a potential buyer or seller of the company.  

Congratulations to the winning team and to Dorian Hendrickx who was awarded with the individual prize. The prizes included among others a Garmin smartwatch, vouchers for a number of restaurants in the Liège region, and an extraordinary stay at a place of choice.
