This ensured that they became part of the integral management team and at all points during negotiations their advice was commercially driven, supported by a highly detailed financial understanding and absolutely aligned to the interests and objectives of the shareholders. We were highly impressed with their ability to skilfully navigate through transactional issues and would not hesitate to recommend them."
