"After Quarton had already successfully organized the sale of my former company Medical Intelligence GmbH to Elekta AB, it was clear for me to trust Quarton's outstanding medical technology know-how and excellent service in this transaction as well. Despite our already high expectations, Quarton exceeded them in every respect, and through their competence and commitment made the transaction an extraordinary success."

When it was time to sell Center Manufacturing, we interviewed several of the premier investment banking firms in the middle market, including Quarton. We selected Quarton for their tailor-made process, relationships with the best strategic and financial buyers, and senior-level attention. Having a trusted advisor like Quarton, who took the time to get to know our business well, was instrumental in positioning the business most effectively. Throughout the process the Quarton team stayed on top of the deal and was relentless in their effort. I commend the team from Quarton and view this successful result as the foundation for a long relationship between our firms.

Throughout the process, with BlueCF on our side, we experienced Ströer as a competent and exciting partner with a great vision. We are now a separate entity within the Stöer Group and look forward to building “Ströer online”.
Quarton performed superbly throughout the entire process and drove the transaction to a successful close. We were deeply impressed by the quality of the marketing materials and the energetic outreach to a broad community of potential buyers. In addition, the Quarton team developed professional, respectful and results-driven relationships with the Waples management team early on and sustained them through the close.
Most importantly, the Quarton team managed the sale process highly effectively from the Letter of Intent stage until the transaction closed. You proactively identified potential hurdles and engaged Southlake Equity, the management team, and the buyer to resolve those issues, always keeping the process on track. I look forward to a long relationship with Quarton. Thank you again for doing such an excellent job.

Quarton was engaged to assist in determining strategic alternatives related for a capital raise/partial sale of ProtectCELL. Quarton’s approach to the project was thoughtful, diligent, and comprehensive. The team was incredibly responsive and consistently met timeframes established as benchmarks in the process.
Quarton exceeded all expectation in terms of managing the sale process from LOI to close. The coaching during the management presentations was highly effective and instrumental in keeping momentum throughout the process. As the transaction reached the closing phase, Quarton’s steady hand helped overcome hurdles and shape alternatives that were key to closing the transaction. Thank you for your excellent service.

BlueCF was early involved in the development of the company's future strategy. BlueCF managed the transaction process from the company's documentation to the successful transaction. The team was very professional throughout the process and we look forward to further joined projects.
When I bought the DOT GmbH in 2007, I met Blue Corporate Finance as the sell side advisor on the other side of the table. Since then I decided to have Blue Corporate Finance as a support for my next transaction. Now, six years later, I am convinced that my impression at that time and the subsequent decision was the right one.
