“Our executive team interviewed several investment banks to help advise us on our individual and company financial goals in regard to using the ESOP structure to help achieve them all.   After a full year of study and interviews; we decided upon a partial sale of our business to an ESOP as well as utilizing the expertise of the Ambrose team to help us make it happen.  We selected the Ambrose Principals to represent us in this transaction because they had significant capital markets, M&A and ESOP experience which we found unique for a boutique investment bank to possess all of these skillsets.  The Ambrose Principals did a great job assembling a team of professionals (specialized ESOP attorneys, ESOP trustees, etc), quarterbacking and successfully closing our ESOP transaction and helping to place the capital to provide our selling shareholder with upfront cash.  They also assisted us with the roll-out meetings after the closing. The Ambrose Principals took the time to listen to our goals and objectives and put together a customized transaction that met most, but addressed all, of those goals and objectives.  We continue to partner with Ambrose who acts as our third party administrator and we like that because they are always available for questions and are helping us to administer the plan that we created with them a couple of years ago when the transaction closed. We would recommend Ambrose to any business owner considering a sale or liquidity transaction and will be relying upon them when we transition to a 100% ESOP in the future.”
