“M&A is complex. Most sellers are at a genuine disadvantage in each phase due to asymmetric knowledge. Having SEG at our side was critical in tilting the playing field to maximize enterprise value. By leveraging years of negotiating experience and managing the process with our best interests in mind, SEG helped structure a terrific deal for me and our shareholders. I look forward to working with them again!”
