According to Josh S. Vance, previous president and CEO of VasTech and now with Lawson Software, (http://www.Lawson.com), "VirtualCDO engineered a complete transformation of our business in less than nine months. From analyzing our current markets and streamlining our sales processes to hands-on partnership, sales, and M&A advisory activities, VirtualCDO enabled us to take VasTech to the next level. As a mid-size business with limited resources, we looked for an immediate return on every dollar we spent; engaging VirtualCDO proved to be one of the best investments we ever made since our inception."
Larry Dunivan, vice president of global Human Capital Management products for Lawson Software, noted, "Initially we wondered whether a seller's M&A advisor might slow the acquisition. Just the opposite was true in this case. In the end, we experienced an efficient and quick due diligence process, which ultimately benefited both seller and buyer."
VirtualCDO's M&A advisory services focus on engineering win/win deal scenarios for both buyer and seller to maximize return-on-investment (ROI) results in every transaction.
