“We chose Ben Howe and AGC Partners because of their expertise in the technology industry and like-minded dedication to maintaining Buildium's core business values. At the start of our engagement Ben promised that no one works harder than the team at AGC, and he was right—we're thrilled with the outcome of our strategic investment. With the support of AGC Partners, Buildium was able to secure the funding we wanted on terms that delivered a terrific outcome for our investors, shareholders, customers and employees."

"We engaged AGC because of its track record, deep market knowledge, and relationships. That perspective proved invaluable to the Board and a mission-oriented shareholder group in forming a consensus to divest Exostar from joint venture to private equity ownership. I can't speak more highly of the tenacity and professionalism that Maria, Russ and the AGC team brought to the table every day to advance our strategic interests. We are excited at the prospect of moving forward under Thoma Bravo's stewardship, and the deal absolutely would not have happened without AGC. AGC has earned my highest recommendation."

"The AGC team was instrumental in ensuring the success of our transaction. They served as trusted advisors through every step of the process, with intense focus on every detail and proven knowledge of companies and deals like ours. It was a pleasure to have them on our team and I would welcome the opportunity to work with them again in the future."

"To us, it was essential that our banker could fundamentally understand the Promon technology and offering. The AGC team quickly gained such understanding. By doing so, they could 'connect the dots' very rapidly; providing us with deep insight into which partnerships would long-term create the greatest return for all parties. On top of that, they don't forget the small details, which ultimately will lead to a timely and satisfactory transaction. We can give AGC our strongest recommendations as an M&A advisor in the IT security industry."

"AGC was referred to me by a friend who was the founder of a technology company AGC helped sell to a major global player. Selecting AGC was one of the best decisions I made throughout the investment process. Sean and the AGC team, who managed the entire process for us, definitely surpassed our expectations and we would have never been able to close this type of a transaction without his consistent guidance. This is even more true given the major headwind that we encountered right before closing - the COVID outbreak. Thanks to our solid performance and Sean's persistence and experience throughout the COVID period, we were able to close a great deal nevertheless."

"The AGC team did a fantastic job of truly understanding and articulating the Beezy story to the financial partner community. AGC was invaluable in helping us traverse this process, selecting Goldman Sachs, negotiating terms, and ultimately bringing this transaction to a highly successful closing. We could not be more pleased with our experience and AGC's efforts!"

"AGC was invaluable in raising Foreground’s profile with potential buyers, and in conducting a rapid, intense and highly effective process when strategic interest arose. By leveraging relationships across both the Defense Intelligence community and enterprise security, AGC was able to find the right home for my company in Raytheon, in a deal that both sides view as a huge win. Russ Workman actively led a strong team that was committed to my success and made it happen with crisp execution and great advice. This outcome would not have happened without AGC and it certainly wouldn’t have been as successful as it was – Russ and his team have earned my highest recommendation."

"Linda and the AGC team were instrumental in using their industry knowledge to guide us through the M&A process and achieve an exciting outcome for Ignite's next growth phase. As a founder owned business, we appreciated the breadth and depth of AGC's deal experience, especially through the details and nuances of the final negotiation and deal documentation. They were available 24/7 to support us all along the way from the evaluation of various potential strategic alternatives to due diligence. They were a valuable resource, and we were glad to have them by our side."

"Our company presented an interesting challenge for even the most skilled Strategic Advisor. Knowing our situation was somewhat unique and complex, we carefully selected our partner for this process. The AGC team had solid subject matter expertise and their approach to our engagement was thoughtful and ultimately produced a very positive outcome for our shareholders, customers, employees and the acquiring business. Fred and his team played a key role in the timing of the process, the positioning of the business overall and in every stage leading to Closing. I would highly recommend AGC and Fred and hope to have the opportunity to work with them again in the future."
