We were delighted to act as lead advisors to the shareholders of Digi during both the exit planning and transaction delivery stages.”

We were delighted with the advice that we received from the partner team at Isca Ventures throughout the exit planning and company sale processes. They delivered value at every stage and were instrumental in the successful sale of our business. They felt very much part of our own internal team throughout and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to owners considering the sale of their business.
