“We are grateful to Spayne Lindsay – a truly impressive adviser – who played a key role in the success of this transaction.  Whereas advisory firms frequently do little more than bring the parties together and interject occasional snippets of advice, Spayne Lindsay were positively different; they were excellent, active, honest brokers, keeping the momentum and helping steer the deal to a conclusion successful for all parties.”
