Mike Dames with Halstatt commented regarding the transaction, “The Benchmark team was an exceptional firm to work with through this acquisition process. The process was extremely well organized from the data room to weekly update calls, to orchestrating meetings to move the deal forward between the attorney open points, and lastly making sure there was a clear roadmap to get to close. The Confidential Information Memorandum was also top-notch and accurate. I would highly recommend anyone looking to purchase a business to work with the Benchmark team in the future!”
This acquisition allows Mark and Heather to fulfill their retirement goals after running a successful company for over 20 years. This also gives the Halstatt team a foothold in the market research and consulting industry, where they can continue to build on the long-term success of The Colography Group.
