We are delighted that we appointed Quercus Corporate Finance to act for management; their understanding of the dynamics between management teams and institutional shareholders has been invaluable. Adrian’s ability to rapidly understand the impact of potential structures on all parties and put forward alternatives has enhanced management’s position and benefited the other parties”.
