Silverpeak team

The Silverpeak team helped us build the equity story and business plan; held in-depth discussions with global investors; put together the multi-party transaction; and provided invaluable support throughout the process all the way to closing – it was a huge undertaking and I’m sure resulted in a better outcome than managing the process in-house.
