Client Testimonial

We engaged TM Capital as our investment banker based on the firm’s strong reputation in the market and its IT industry experience.  We immediately noticed TM’s senior-level commitment to our transaction, and also the quality of its associates and analysts.  TM delivered as promised and architected a great outcome with a world-class buyer who we believe will create meaningful opportunities for our employees and clients.  I was particularly impressed with the team’s experience in navigating the complexities of a cross-border transaction; in this case with a Japanese buyer.  That expertise proved critical to the success of this transaction.”
