“It was fascinating to watch how JEGI & Clarity managed our deal process. Nudging it forward all the time, keeping everyone at the table, urging all parties to dig deeper, and never wavering from the timetable and the process. It was a masterclass.”Mary Ambler, Chief Financial Officer, FC Business Intelligence
“On the number + on time + a buyer that truly represented management’s first choice. That is an exceedingly rare trifecta as far as I am concerned. JEGI’s ability to keep advancing the story and optimizing its delivery, and to steer wisely where necessary, made for a job very well done.”Mark Giles, Chairman, RKG
“We couldn’t be happier with our decision to partner with JEGI. We researched five firms before choosing JEGI, because of their experience, network, and optimal positioning. Their prospective buyers included many that had never been on our radar. We are very pleased with the outcome.”Bob Moss, CEO & Founder, Competitrack
“JEGI did a fantastic job in creating shareholder value. They provided access to the right investors and brought in buyers that weren’t on our radar. They ran a smooth process and were a great resource for management. We look forward to working with them again.”Michael Hsieh, Chairman, ecVision and President, Fung Capital USA
“Working with JEGI is like bringing an NBA ringer to your street game. From start to finish they gave us everything: smarts, passion, judgement, experience, and relentless effort.
