Eighth Day Sound

I could not be more pleased with the services of Edgepoint.  The team worked with us through a long and difficult process with an initial buyer, managing the process and working with my staff side-by-side. Most importantly, they instilled in us the confidence that great alternatives were available if at any point we didn’t feel it was the right candidate. We didn’t!  Edgepoint negotiated and closed an even better deal in less time than we spent negotiating with the initial party.
