“There are three things one should never discount: your brain surgeon, your parachute packer, and importantly, your investment banking advisor. The Navagant team ensured the greatest inurement of value, excelled in providing industry knowledge, and negotiated so adeptly to complete a watershed transaction for us.”

– Steve Wills, Executive Chairman, Caliper

“I truly believe that we would not have achieved our outcome with any other M&A advisor. Jacob Voorhees and the rest of the team brought forth the savvy and sophisticated deal execution experience necessary to manage both private equity funds and strategic acquirers. I’ve been a principal investor within this particular industry for more than 15 years, and they introduced me to international buyers that I wasn’t even aware of.”

– Felix Park, Principal, Gryphon Investors

“The process of taking your company to market can be extremely intimidating, but the advisors at Navagant were incredible partners through the whole process. We always felt they had our best interests in mind—they weren’t just trying to make a deal. With detailed knowledge of
our industry and the structure of similar deals, they helped us locate the perfect private equity sponsor. We would never have closed this deal without their guidance.”

– Matt Riley, CEO, Blueprint

“This transaction was the most momentous and emotional event of my life. We couldn’t
have done it without the team. They were tenacious and took on the roles of both CEO
and CFO during the process to ensure a successful closing.”

- Dr. Becky Bailey, Founder, Conscious Discipline

“The team invested the time to understand our company, its unique qualities and what
we sought in a partner. They didn’t treat it like ‘just another engagement’ and worked to qualify buyers that met our non-quantitative criteria. They were true stewards and champions of the company we built.”

– Eli Boufis, Partner, Driehaus Private Equity

“The team went beyond expectations in all categories. If you simply want to
close a transaction, choose any firm. If you want to position your company to realize its
fullest potential, work with the Navagant team.“

– Mike Sanders, COO, Rosh Review

“The Navagant team worked assiduously throughout the sale process to meet the
stringent demands of our stakeholders. Their expertise and work effort guided us
successfully through to close with a great buyer and a top of the range valuation.”

– John Elsey, CEO, Richardson
