"DNA's complete buy-side offering helped us accelerate our acquisition targeting, screening, evaluation, negotiation and close process. Thanks to a close collaboration, we could also count on DNA to be quick on their feet to assist us in evaluating, and responding to inbound opportunities. DNA was truly an extension of our internal team, an 'outsourced corporate development' resource of sorts, that could be counted on every step of the way."Ginette Maillée, CFO
“DNA Capital demonstrated their ability to transact globally in presenting us – a specialist healthcare investment adviser based in London – with the opportunity to make a strategic acquisition based in Montreal, in a highly attractive and rapidly growing segment of the healthcare space. They were instrumental in helping us navigate through the process of completing the transaction to the satisfaction of all parties, while pre-empting an anticipated structured sale process, which was essential to us, and in helping us put in place the capital structure.”
Mike Mortimer, Partner
"We were impressed by how quickly and efficiently DNA Capital was able to assemble a diversified pool of high-net-worth and institutional investors, both local/domestic and foreign, who embraced our vision and entrepreneurial culture. The funds raised helped us finance the roll-out of our innovative no-frill-chic hotel concept across Canada."
Jean-Yves Germain, Copresident
“DNA Capital succeeded where all our previous advisors had failed. DNA understood very quickly our business model and the potential for building a world class scrap metal producer from a greenfield project just outside Montreal, Canada. Over a period of nine months, they were able to put together a group of 25 investors and create debt package from a Canadian bank, to finance the construction, equipment, and start-up of the plant. I was impressed by the commitment and the entrepreneurship demonstrated by DNA’s team of investment bankers.”
Jean-Guy Hamelin, President & CEO
"The acquisition by Camoplast of Solideal in 2009 was a significant undertaking and a transformational event for our company. In DNA Capital, we found seasoned investment bankers who had the know-how and experience to structure a cross-border transaction that was fair for both parties, which is was made the deal so successful. We have continued to work with DNA Capital since."
Pierre Marcouiller, Chairman of the Board and CEO
"We were looking for a seasoned investor to partner with us in order to complete the buyback of a partner in an incredibly short amount of time. DNA Capital was able to find a suitable investor and to help us close the transaction in a matter of weeks, under our targeted terms and conditions."
Leonard Schlemm, President & CEO
"When we decided to open an office in Canada, our relationship with members of DNA Capital helped us to quickly grow our footprint and establish relationships with a large number of corporate clients. The complementary nature of our services enables us to collaborate in a number of situations, to the greater benefit of our respective clients."
