“I worked with Komen Capital through the acquisition of my business by a global group over the end of 2013/14. I found the experience to be a very good one. Extensive knowledge of the industry, both locally and abroad, the players, the complexities and the realities were clearly and simply presented always with my best interests in mind. Komen Capital approached us initially with a view to offering our business up for potential sale and the primary reason for us going ahead was being brought a match that felt like it would suit not only our pocket, but also our personality which is a critical factor in ensuring success post-deal. Although the negotiation process of an international acquisition is always complex, Larry Katz read the playing field well and kept us informed every step of the way making sure we knew exactly what was happening when, where and how long! Very comforting indeed to have someone pushing the deal through and keeping momentum. All this concluded with a deal that really was favourable to us. A good result for all parties. I would highly recommend Komen Capital to anyone pursuing international mergers or acquisitions."
