Client Comment:

ICON acted for us on our MBO from US based parent, LTX. We chose ICON because they specialize in technology deals, so they were able to provide key insights into the critical issues affecting our market and corporate development. They successfully raised us £2m MBO financing which included mezzanine finance and an export trade factoring facility. We left the guys at ICON to it and they negotiated an outstanding deal
