"For 30 years, the team has advised Arran Isle on strategic transactions. We selected them to manage the divestiture of our US operations not just because of this relationship, but also their sector knowledge, and critically, their value realization proposition. They were with us every step of the way and did a great job throughout, ultimately delivering a strong value on the time schedule set forth at the outset of the process. The team managed communication and negotiations with professionalism and vigour. The team’s industry knowledge, attention to detail and total immersion in every aspect of the transaction were truly impressive. We sincerely appreciate their efforts and the result they achieved for us."Martin Wardhaugh, Group Chief Executive at Arran Isle Limited
