Quarton performed superbly throughout the entire process and drove the transaction to a successful close. We were deeply impressed by the quality of the marketing materials and the energetic outreach to a broad community of potential buyers. In addition, the Quarton team developed professional, respectful and results-driven relationships with the Waples management team early on and sustained them through the close. Most importantly, the Quarton team managed the sale process highly effectively from the Letter of Intent stage until the transaction closed.

I look forward to a long relationship with Quarton. Thank you again for doing such an excellent job.
