“We had a remarkable experience with JEGI. We interviewed a few investment banks, and JEGI really stood out from other media and information focused firms. In our selection process and in speaking with their references, it was very clear they were the right fit for us, due to their experience in our markets, the tight processes they run, and their significant access to c-level decision-makers. In our process, they had extremely clear thoughts on the business and the value. They helped show us a means of presenting the business that was genuine and professional and led to a different level set of opportunities than we had expected. We would hands down, no question, hope to have the chance to work with the team at JEGI again.”
