In the end, they brought all these perspectives to bear, developing an exceptional strategy that created value for our company.
Outcome Capital has demonstrated an astute and insightful understanding of our value proposal and the major companies in the cardiovascular space. They provided us with invaluable strategic advice and I can’t think of better partners to have guided us through the process.
They understood our technology and business as well as anyone.
Outcome worked diligently with our executives and board to develop and communicate a strategy that was instrumental in enhancing the value of our company. Their business acumen and knowledge of our market space drove a complex transaction to a very successful close.
Advanced Uro-Solutions engaged the services of Outcome Capital late in the process of being acquired. Outcome Capital took control of all further negotiations and masterfully increased the value of our final offering. The added value Outcome Capital was responsible for was 10 times greater than the value we invested in their services. Our only regret was in not bringing them on sooner. Arnie and Oded brought an amazing team of talented, organized and highly effective individuals. We could NOT have been more satisfied.
