  • DC worked with the founders to engage select investors with relevant expertise in the industry, allowing the company to negotiate preemptive offers and close the transaction expeditiously ahead of a formal process

  • DC provided full advisory support, managed the investor due diligence process and helped negotiate definitive documentation with LLR and its advisors

Outcome

  • VTS received a growth equity investment from LLR Partners in June 2021

  • Investment will accelerate growth for the IntelliShift platform, including product innovation, expanding the sales & marketing organization, and enhancing customer experience and ROI by optimizing and transforming fleet and asset management

“Dave, Eddie, Haider and the DC Advisory team have been nothing short of exceptional throughout this deal process. They worked diligently and advocated for VTS from start to finish. The DC team has been a trusted advisor to my company for years and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future. We are truly excited for the growth and opportunities to come from our partnership with LLR.”
