"It was a herculean feat to start a process in the frothy market of late 2021, and to finish it in the tough market of mid-2022 at a great valuation.

Throughout the entire process, Jon and the AGC team put our long term interests as a company first and showed, through their words and actions, that they really cared about our entire team and about getting us the right deal for the next chapter in our evolution. The AGC team put their whole heart and soul into the deal for us and we could not be happier with the outcome."
