"The AGC team was outstanding throughout the entire 24x7 M+A process. We set a very high bar going in, and Jon and Dennis navigated the path to achieving our goal with remarkable skill. The entire AGC team exceeded expectations at every turn, truly understanding our business and the markets which led to an exceptional outcome for everyone."

"When the FRS shareholders decided to review their strategic options for the business they had a number of criteria for selecting an investment banker. The banker had to be familiar with FRS's vertical market and with likely interested parties in both the European and North American markets. Given FRS would only get one shot at the process we also wanted the process 'partner led.' In AGC's Sean Tucker, based in London, and Dennis Rourke, based in Boston, we found two experienced and commercially savvy partners who met these criteria. Markus and Dennis provided sound advice throughout and always had our best interest at heart. I would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone considering selling their business."
-Peter Caslin, CEO, FRS
"When we started the process which will help chart the course of our company for the next 30 years, we had very high expectations. AGC managed to exceed these expectations at each step of the process in terms of professionalism, dedication and smarts."
