Munich / London, June 2017 - AURELIUS Group (ISIN DE000A0JK2A8), the mid-market pan-European investor, has won "Turnaround of the Year/Small Company" at the prestigious TMA Europe Debtwire Award 2017. The award, which recognises the achievements of a team of turnaround professionals who have orchestrated the most successful turnaround of a struggling company (with less than EUR 100 million in revenues), honoured AURELIUS for its investment in fidelis HR.
