With other partners in the business, my situation was somewhat complicated, so I sought the advice and counsel of an investment banking firm. R.L. Hulett & Company successfully managed this complex sale process as skilled professionals. I am very satisfied with the outcome and had it not been for their efforts, it would have been very difficult for me to achieve my end objectives.
