WTA worked with the company as their exclusive M&A advisor.

Lorraine was very pleased to provide her testimonial to WTA’s effectiveness.

“Right from the start it was obvious that the principals knew everything there was to know about selling businesses in this niche market. They were skilful negotiators, tireless workers with an immense amount of patience. Nothing was too much trouble. WTA were was always available, day and night - and weekends.

I received very wise counsel during the process and I was very grateful for the guidance throughout. I had no idea about the amount of work we had to undertake during the Due Diligence process and there were times when I needed a prod in the right direction - it was supplied but always in a very nice way.

In the end, I was very pleased with the eventual deal that was negotiated on our behalf. I would wholeheartedly recommend WTA to anyone thinking of selling an IT-related business. I shall always be grateful to them for what they achieved for me personally.”
