"Partnering with AGC was absolutely the right decision for us. AGC understood our vision and business right out of the gates, investing considerable up front effort, they enabled us to go to market quickly. Their approach is aggressive, transparent with no wasted cycles - exactly what we were looking for in a partner. Their network is incredibly strong with real, senior connections, not just logos, giving us confidence that the right investors would give us a look and fairly evaluate our deal. AGC's process of going deep early, anticipating the questions or potential pitfalls up front, creates an efficient process that weeds the tire kickers out from the serious contenders. In spite of a frothy, competitive market, AGC cut through the noise and brought outstanding, serious investors to the table. The team coached us through every step of the negotiations, kept us on track all the way through to a successful outcome. We couldn't be more thrilled with the results - I can confidently say we wouldn't have arrived at this deal without the partnership and support of AGC from start to finish."
