FirePower Capital was a perfect fit. In addition, as the firm excels at bringing together global buyers and Canadian business owners in its M&A advisory practice, I expect to fully leverage my international deal experience.

FirePower was engaged to prepare PrintFleet for a a sale, and guide the company through to closing. Weeks before closing, the buyer with whom PrintFleet signed an LOI following a competitive auction, a Japanese Fortune 500 company, terminated the deal because of an internal reorganization. FirePower re-ignited conversations with a US strategic who had done well in the auction, and closed without any major challenges at an attractive price, terms and conditions.
