“Thank you so much for the hard work you put into our sale.
We are delighted with the result both personally and for the company. We now have some work to do in maximising the benefits of the deal to both parties. Your support during the deal was excellent and helped us go through a process that was completely new to us. It seemed to go very smoothly and I know that much of that was due to your background work with Egis's advisors. We also felt well supported on the detail of the final stages.
Many thanks once again to you both. It was a great time and a perfect outcome.”Mike Shorthose, Chairman and co-founder - Helios
