Customer statement:

"Ceetron has used Impello as financial advisor on several occasions and they know our company very well. When we received interest for an acquisition from Tech Soft 3D (backed by the US PE-fund Battery Ventures), Impello was hired to guide us through the process. Impello has assisted with valuable advice and assistance related to valuation, price negotiations, financial DD, process management, etc. They provide high quality services and have shown great flexibility and a high level of service in a highly important and demanding process. The sellers are very happy with the result of the process » -Tor Helge Hansen, CEO
