quote The partners at Acuity really understood our business and the power of the platform we have built. Marcus and Matthew along with Nicci, their excellent client support executive, did all of the work on our transaction. By really understanding WAYN’s key value drivers they were able to introduce the acquisition opportunity to a number of companies that would not have been immediately obvious, but who engaged in the process and were credible potential buyers. I have already, and look forward to again recommending Acuity to other entrepreneurs who are considering a process to sell their companies to a strategic buyer quote
