Client Testimonials

“The DSW TS team worked to a tight timetable to deliver a high quality, clear report. Their understanding of the business and the wider industry was clear in our discussions with them, which was impressive given the volume of data. The team went beyond what was required to ensure we fully understood the detail behind the revenue drivers of individual products, underlying profitability and the working capital requirements/cash considerations. They provided excellent support throughout the transaction and I’d be very happy to use the team again on future engagements.” – Partner | Inflexion Private Equity

“DSW TS’s report and overall approach was refreshingly candid. They assisted us on a range of issues from cash flow generation and bank reconciliations at the start of the transaction, to the completion accounts mechanism at the end. They were always close to the detail and communicated any issues to us in real time so that we were able to make decisions accordingly. Their assistance on this investment was invaluable.” – Investment Director | Gresham Private Equity
