What Our Buy-Side Clients
Have To Say About Us

Cogent Plaid

Buyers

"
We talked with several parties about potential acquisition but decided to work with Cogent because we realized that, as a buy-side intermediary specializing in the IT services space, they had a network of strategic buyers that understood the value of our business and had the capacity to operate it profitably. Even in the midst of a pandemic, they guided us through engineering a deal that improved opportunities for our team, improved service for our customers...

What The Sellers
Say About Us:

Cogent Plaid

Sellers

"
Buying or selling is rewarding in the end, but not an easy ride. Even as the seller to Cogent’s client (the buyer), as we were, working with Cogent will help you navigate the challenge ahead. The Cogent staff was professional, knowledgeable and on-time. When selling your business, emotions run high. At some point you will lose your cool and Cogent’s team will help you get back on track and maintain a professional and congenial transaction for everyone.

As owners of a small Managed Services provider, my partners and I were concerned about representation from the Sellers Side. After meeting the Cogent team and having personal one-on-one conversations with their principals and their merger team, our concerns were laid to rest. Even though Cogent was clear up front on their buyer side representation, it was clear that the team had a vested interest in our long-term success and overall satisfaction with the business merger.

Q&A with a client who was a 5-time buyer, who we also helped exit to one of our other clients:

Did Cogent's experience help/complement your team and getting the transaction done? “Cogent owned the entire process of the transaction. Our team was able to focus on the core business and let Cogent handle the details of the transactions.”

When it comes to modeling the deal points, what do you think of Cogent’s work product and the process generally? The Cogent financial analysis of candidate companies was far superior to what our in-house team could achieve on their own. The modeling workbook sliced up the financial data into many view- points, allowing me to make decisions with all the information at my fingertips. Deal points were easy to model and create with Cogent’s work product.
