When the FRS shareholders decided to review their strategic options for the business they had a number of criteria for selecting an investment banker.Peter Caslin, CEO, FRS
The banker had to be familiar with FRS's vertical market and with likely interested parties in both the European and North American markets. Given FRS would only get one shot at the process we also wanted the process 'partner led.' In AGC's Markus Salolainen, based in London, and Dennis Rourke, based in Boston, we found two experienced and commercially savvy partners who met these criteria. Markus and Dennis provided sound advice throughout and always had our best interest at heart. I would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone considering selling their business.
In order to continue our success and ultimately provide better solutions and service for our clients, we needed an investment banking partner that was highly knowledgeable of our market and business model while having close relationships within the growth equity community. The AGC team truly understood the nuances of our business and were able to generate excitement around our story and triple-digit annual revenue growth over the past few years. We look forward to working with AGC on future transactions and appreciate the 24/7 commitment they delivered day-in and day-out.Finnur Oddsson, CEO, Origo

Crisp's proposition is unique in this market and we needed a partner who understood exactly what we were looking to achieve, without putting us in a pre-defined box. The team at AGC had an excellent understanding of the market and were committed to achieving the right result. They were there with us every step of the way.Andrew Burke, Chairman, Crisp Thinking Group
