We really enjoyed supporting a mission-driven management team and business, which brought an additional level of excitement to the transaction. Finding the right investor from a strategic perspective was particularly important for the team at this stage in their journey, so really challenging investors to demonstrate how they would add value was crucial to a successful outcome for our client. We worked closely with the team from the initial stages of finding the right investor through to each stage of the transaction to completion.
