SASI ENGAGEMENT

SASI had an existing relationship with a QuickTree Board advisor who believed we could add value during a strategic inflection point. SASI quickly performed a situation assessment and guided the founders through a strategic mapping exercise. This led to the sellside mandate and driving the process to a successful outcome. Keys to success included deal structuring and managing due diligence and post acquisition integration matters.
