Icafin started the project head-on and right from the start came up with an overview of all possible investors for one of our well known polishing brands, Ca-va-Seul. The project was closed in less than 3 months at the conditions that we had set ourselves as a target. We are very happy with the service that Icafin provided us with and hope we can work with them again in the future.
Prestwick did an outstanding job of navigating international waters to close the sale of our U.S.-based portfolio company, Westcon Industries, to Bilfinger Berger of Germany. I have no doubt that Prestwick’s international network, Socius Corporate Finance, played a role in advising Prestwick on the nuances of how German companies pursue M&A opportunities, value businesses, and conduct due diligence and the approval process of closing transactions. We have extreme confidence in Prestwick and their ability to conduct cross-border transactions with their international network.
"We chose Trianon mainly for the personality and entrepreneurial experience of its partners. Our main concern was to preserve the spirit of Amosdec and to pursue its development, so we were looking for a buyer familiar with the market. Prority was given to the project that proved the most complete in terms of financial, human and industrial aspects.
Always by our side, the Trianon CF team did a great job understanding our business and pulling together the best plan of action, such as leading negotiations with a multinational candidate weighing 20 billion dollars in sales. They understood the position we had built for ourselves through 10 years of strong financial and human investments. Communication was good on both the selling and buying sides, which helped the deal close rather quickly."
« HÜBNER SCHLÖSSER & Cie found the perfect buyer who really fits to our objectives by providing distribution power in Germany and internationally, and by allowing us to depart from management swiftly. And we achieved very acceptable terms last but not least through HSCie´s process management and negotiation skills. »
The introduction of Tractus Asia to us by Economic Development Lethbridge was serendipitous. Tractus came in at exactly the right time. The team expertly advised and assessed AgSpectra's first Starfield Centre project for Magrath, Alberta, improving both the project's financial model and presentation to potential Chinese investors. With their help, Starfield Magrath hit our first-tier equity fund raising goal this March 2017 - only 4 months after meeting Tractus. The Tractus team have been gold to Starfield and AgSpectra.
