"When you are being approached by private equity nearly every month, it's natural to question the value of using a banker. But it's important to understand how private equity works and what's in the playbook in order to get the best outcome. We chose AGC because of their dominance and knowledge in our segment of the market. The team, led by Russ Workman, helped us build the right story and manage all the moving parts that resulted in a sale with a valuation above what we were seeking. Simply put, if I had it to do all over again, I would not change a thing. Russ and team did an outstanding job and the results were everything I hoped for."
