“This is the second successful portfolio company exit on which the team has advised us in the past three years. Their industry knowledge and deal expertise were evident throughout. What really made the team instrumental in closing with a large multinational buyer during the COVID-19 pandemic was their sensitivity to the many nuances of each party’s requirements and aspirations. This was one of the more complicated but ultimately satisfying transactions I have been a part of. The team executed it with thoughtful strategy, teamwork and poise. Each member of the team was exceptional. They worked together to drive the deal forward to completion, and there was always clear communication and consistent messaging to all parties. I highly recommend them to anyone considering selling a business, and look forward to working with them again in the future.”
