In The Buyer's Words

By working with Benchmark International, we were able to identify and perform preliminary evaluations of several companies quickly and accurately within our targeted geographic area. Their significant knowledge of the acquisition process, the sophistication of their systems (e.g., online data exchange), and their willingness to communicate deal structures based on their past experiences were all valuable to the success of our acquisition.

Denis St. Peter
CES

The professionalism of Benchmark International provided vital assistance from the onset of the business transaction to the final steps involved in the closing. We found that during this arduous process, which could have easily been marred with ambiguity and uncertainty, the Benchmark Team eradicated unnecessary tensions punctuated by assuring all parties remained focused on the end goal objectives. Undoubtedly, the Benchmark professional team provided trust, integrity and mutually beneficial solutions. Peace of mind comes from having an alliance partner who is ethical, highly responsive, and proactively engaging as Benchmark International.

Maurice Hamilton
Dalco Contingency

We were delighted to invest in Protean Software and in a process managed by Benchmark International which was smooth, transparent and efficient.

James Livingston
Foresight Group

The complete process was handled with professionalism and was well coordinated. Benchmark International facilitated discussion between client and buyer throughout enabling the transaction to be completed in an efficient manner. We look forward to our future with G.B. Access and would like to thank Benchmark International for its services.

Phil Wolff
Ashtead Plant Hire Company Ltd

Benchmark International presented themselves as, more or less, an unbiased partner to us. We had a feeling that they were very honest in giving us information and this was very helpful. For instance, during the process, Benchmark helped us to understand the British accountancy standards and the business processes which we were not so acquainted with before.

Bertram Häussler
IGES Institut

Working with Benchmark International has been very productive and efficient. Throughout the process they were constantly engaged, followed up on all the issues, and provided a professional and courteous atmosphere that enabled the deal to complete in a timely manner.

Ousama Shamma
3rd Millennium

We believe identifying the right opportunity with the right fit is critical for success in the M&A space. In working with Benchmark International on our most recent acquisition, we realized they share that same vision. Not only was the Benchmark International team helpful throughout the process, but their approach to this engagement was comprehensive, thoughtful and focuses while placing significant emphasis on the success of the combined firms. We look forward to working with them on future opportunities.
