TESTIMONIALS

Harry Singer
Former CEO
EDGE Entertainment Distribution

I have worked with EdgePoint on both “buy-side” and “sell-side” engagements. In both instances, I found them to be strategic thinkers, as well as an excellent negotiators. In the instance of the sell-side transaction, though I am not inexperienced in negotiating transactions, there can be no doubt that their prior experience with large private equity buyers got the deal closed on terms and conditions within the valuation range EdgePoint had calculated. I am not sure we would have been able to close without their guidance and expertise.
