"Jon, Doug and the AGC team have been tremendous in driving an incredibly fast and successful process. They demonstrated an exceptional ability to quickly understand our vision and opportunity ahead of us. With their precision guidance, strong network and incredibly streamlined and efficient diligence support, we quickly aligned ourselves with the investment partner who is best-suited to support PDFTron in the next stage of growth and the achievement of our company's mission."

"Jon, Doug and the AGC team were simply extraordinary. They dig in, roll up their sleeves, and work hard. They sweat the details, and they listen well. Their commitment to PDFTron was evident from Day 1, and it didn't waiver. PDFTron wouldn't have had the outcome it did without Jon and Doug."

The AGC team was instrumental in ensuring the success of our transaction. They served as trusted advisors through every step of the process, with intense focus on every detail and proven knowledge of companies and deals like ours. It was a pleasure to have them on our team and I would welcome the opportunity to work with them again in the future.

AGC's expertise was invaluable in helping us navigate strong investor interest and connect with a great investment partner to help us achieve our goals and vision. Their team was always accessible, learned our business and helped us populate a well-ordered data room that streamlined the diligence process. As a result, ActivTrak secured one of the biggest funding rounds in Austin this year – in one of the hottest growth markets in software. This was a true testament to Jon and Doug's deep experience, strong network and unwavering commitment to client success.

Jon, Doug, and the greater AGC team were exceptional partners to Thought Industries. We are very grateful for their invaluable advice, quick action and 'always-on' approach. They take a very complicated process and manage it with incredible precision and professionalism. It was a pleasure to have them as part of our extended team and I would whole-heartedly recommend them.

Doug and the AGC team were true partners throughout our capital raise. They took the time to learn about our industry and dig into what makes Skyword successful. They worked hard to find an investor that would bring, not just capital, but true expertise to the table. AGC served as trusted advisors through every step of the process, demonstrating attention to detail and ensuring everyone at the table worked productively through the process. I recommend Doug and AGC highly and look forward to partnering with them in the future.

We are delighted with the outcome we reached thanks to AGC. Doug and his team worked diligently and found the perfect investment fit for our business' growth needs. Their responsiveness and availability during the deal structuring and closing process was exceptional.
