ICON provided excellent advice throughout the process. When, after an approach, we decided to look at options, ICON was able to generate very healthy interest from a range of international buyers and, in the end, secured an acquirer that was not previously known to us. Needless to say, we are very pleased with the outcome and achieved all of our core objectives on the sale of PleaseTech with their help.
Selling a business is a far from straightforward journey. We were delighted with ICON, they introduced us to a variety of interested buyers and negotiated an attractive deal for shareholders but also provided solid advice to help us navigate around the banana skins that were thrown in our direction
We are delighted with the outcome of the M&A process. ICON secured two market leaders in their respective territories and demonstrated their high level of professionalism, deal negotiating skills and tenacity throughout in achieving these two very good deals for the shareholders of Logbuy.
Working with ICON on our Series A fundraising was an extremely valuable experience for Preservica. ICON’s deep knowledge of the UK technology investment market, and how to best approach potential investors with our unique business value proposition for Digital Preservation, paved the way for significant interest from a number of investment partners. Throughout the entire fund raising process, ICON acted as a trusted advisor ensuring an optimal result for our company and all our stakeholders. We are extremely pleased with the professionalism and personal attention that ICON have brought to this project.
I have experienced several investment rounds in my career, both self-managed and using advisors. I highly recommend other entrepreneurs to consider using advisors such as ICON. Fund raising is an increasingly complex process and not something that an entrepreneur should tackle alone. We choose ICON after an extensive selection process, they were flexible in the deal we struck and were sensible in their fee structure. Fundraising is never simple, having a guide though the process is extremely helpful. ICON supported us throughout the journey. It is testament to their abilities (and to the quality of the business, that the short list of potential investors resulted in over half offering terms. This ultimately led to a successful conclusion with two of the best VC’s in our space investing. I would not hesitate to use their services in any future round and equally would not hesitate to recommend them to other entrepreneurs looking to accelerate their business.
We are indebted to ICON for their skills and expertise.
ICON did a great job managing the process and provided the right blend of experience, patience, commitment and sector knowledge. Their process provided us with a selection of offers, which both provided a choice and helped maximise value for our shareholders.
I can't thank you guys enough... you really turned the thumbscrews at the right time and this yielded a great result.
