“With the team’s leadership in the M&A process, we were able to continue conducting the business with peace of mind. In addition, they always provided the best explanation for our doubts that arose during the preparation of the business plan, roadshow, due diligence and signature, always with a lot of patience to help us understand some points that were new to us. The business became much lighter with the team’s management because we knew that we had extremely qualified professionals by our side to clarify, lead, redirect and draw attention when necessary. They were essential in all phases of the transaction. We wouldn’t have made it this far without your advice and commitment.”
