"Tequity more than paid for themselves. Like every other technology company, we were getting inundated regularly with calls from a variety of investors and potential buyers, so when we were getting serious about exploring an exit, we asked ourselves “do we really need to hire and pay for an advisory firm to help us”? After a long internal discussion, our shareholders decided it was worth the “insurance” to use an experienced M&A firm to help us through the process – after all, you only get to sell your company once. We are glad we did and are especially fortunate that we selected Tequity from the firms we evaluated."
“Aquent’s history of innovation and its leadership in providing marketing, creative and technical talent to the world’s biggest and best-known brands makes this an exciting time to join them,” said Ed Van Beilen, principal and co-founder of DEV6. “We look forward to helping even more clients build mobile and web applications that not only drive daily operations but create a sustainable competitive advantage.”
