CGK provided a balanced approach and actively assisted the company, Merit, and the senior lender in getting the deal done. They assisted all parties in negotiations, kept the parties informed, and moved the deal forward. We here at Merit Capital look forward to working with CGK on additional opportunities.” Thomas Campion – Managing Director, Merit Capital

“I want to express my appreciation for the terrific job your firm did preparing us for our recent acquisition by Waste Management Healthcare Solutions, Inc. While I’ve been successful in developing and marketing new concepts as a start-up entrepreneur, I do not speak the language of a director of finance of a multi-billion dollar publicly traded company. Your firm does! Your expertise in assisting me to respond to the due diligence and other deal requirements unquestionably contributed greatly to not only getting the deal done, but making it happen with a minimal amount of heartburn. The online dataroom is an innovative method for rapidly providing documents and also shortened the selling cycle. Thanks again for helping me achieve this personal and professional milestone.” Charlotte A. Smith, R. Ph., M.S., HEM – Director, PharmEcology Services, WM Healthcare Solutions, Inc.

Upon being introduced to CGK Investment Banking, a firm well-qualified in all business disciplines; I successfully completed the acquisition of a business with substantial opportunity for growth and profitability. Their knowledge and professionalism was beyond my expectations, and they still contact me for updates and continue to offer support in all aspects for a successful business venture.” Denis Wagen – Owner, Tech One, Inc.
