As their team consists of deal experts and individuals who have worked in tech businesses, they were able to provide a strong blend of technical expertise and tech sector insight which made them the ideal partner to work with us on the transaction. Their understanding of market drivers and competition helped us shape the offer and guide conversations with various diligence providers - we look forward to working with the team again soon."
