"This deal was, ultimately, entirely dependent on Fred and his team. It was a long and complex process with many unanticipated challenges that resulted in a need for flexibility, intelligence, expertise and a lot of very hard work. Fred managed this process with tact and firmness to coalesce our positioning. Fred and his team were available 24/7 when we needed them. Most of all, Fred managed to lead the board to understand what was critical and what was immaterial in this complex, multi-jurisdictional deal. The next time I want to sell a business AGC, and Fred in particular, will be my first call."
-Matt Colebourne, CEO, Searchmetrics
"Fred and his team jumped in and lead the negotiations, their unparalleled understanding of the Tempo business helped us drive a process that generated a fantastic outcome for the Origo shareholders. Origo is a happy and well satisfied returning client. We have and will continue to recommend Fred and AGC to people who need investment banking services. Looking forward to finding a third opportunity to work together."
-Jon Bjornsson, CEO, Origo
"Throughout the process, I have been glad we had the counsel and support of the AGC team. They quickly establish trust and confidence with the Board who relied heavily on their advice and experience. Their capacity to shape the presentation and willingness to be clear and forthright when we needed to be challenged was incredibly helpful. Now that the transaction is closed I'm going to miss working with this amazing team. If I had to do it all over again, I'd do it with AGC Partners."
