Testimonial

'RSM handled the process with professionalism, the negotiations with intelligence and provided excellent advice throughout. They stuck by us every step of the way and delivered a successful outcome for management and the existing shareholders. As part of a well-run process they introduced an ideal financial partner in Bowmark Capital, who understand the unique features of our business and share our growth philosophy. RSM was nothing but determined to deliver the best deal possible for all shareholders in a difficult and volatile economic climate and I would like to thank them for their efforts throughout.'
