"Choosing DC Advisory to represent us was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. They laid out a well thought out process, which they followed flawlessly through the transaction. The team was extremely knowledgeable, reliable and fully accessible. The trust they had cultivated with the buyers community over the years meant they were able to quickly generate significant interest from key buyers across the sector, which advanced our competitive position. We are very pleased to have chosen DC to represent us and I can safely say that we certainly couldn’t have completed this successful transaction without them."
