vantagepoint has been acquired by SolarSoft
"Over the past twenty years, I have worked closely with several M&A advisors – both on the buy and sell side. In my experience, Software Equity Group stands above them all. Strategically, VantagePoint Systems was ready to join with a larger organization that shared our vision for the company. SEG found us the ideal acquisition partner, negotiated the most favorable deal for both parties, and provided superior guidance to our board and executive team through every step of the transaction. Thanks to Allen and the team at SEG, I am able to spend more time doing what I really love, including surfing long rights at Scorpion Bay, Baja California Sur, Mexico."
