“Stella EOC ran a well-structured process exploring various transaction structures with multiple bidders. The Stella EOC team all worked tirelessly with management to deliver a successful outcome for JPI Media and its stakeholders.”
“Once again it was a pleasure to work with Stella EOC on yet another Xllnc acquisition. Their deep sector expertise was helpful in understanding the full potential of Replace and what they could achieve by joining forces with Xllnc. Their team worked tirelessly to design and find the right transaction structure, providing thoughtful and sound advice throughout the process. As the industry M&A experts in this field, we are very happy to have Stella EOC on our team as Xllnc continues to grow.”
“We are extremely pleased with this outcome; this is another successful partnership with Stella EOC which has proved to be instrumental in making the deal happen. Their extensive knowledge of the market and never-ending energy have been essential in ensuring a safe and quick execution of the transaction that will strengthen Xllnc’s leading position in the ITAM/ITAD market even further.”
“Stella EOC’s knowledge of the Norwegian P2P market and its practices were fundamental contributors to this transaction’s success. Their knowledge of Cxense, its shareholders and the Board, as well as their assistance in liaising with local Norwegian advisors, were all vital to this successful acquisition.”
“When wondering who to represent us during our set-up process, ‘Best In Class’ was the spot-on assessment we received of Stella EOC. As an entrepreneur, you go through this process infrequently, and so it pays to get it right – and we did. Informed, efficient, strategic, courteous, patient (with us) and perceptive (about everything). It was also very enjoyable, thank you Stella EOC.”
