I have a master’s degree in finance and several years’ experience in cost benefit and discounted cash flow analysis. With that technical background, I cannot duplicate the quality of Arpeggio’s financial modeling, but I can understand and appreciate the depth of it. However, as impressive as his financial work is, that’s not what really differentiates Arpeggio’s work. Arpeggio has a keen sense of the end to end process of a successful acquisition. Arpeggio uses that understanding to expertly advise us along the way – including how to “be the adults in the room” when the other side inevitably ignores logic and reacts emotionally, the strategic and non-financial aspects of a deal that would argue for or against proceeding, and the art of negotiations. In short, I am confident that with Arpeggio advising us we significantly increase the likelihood that we will walk away from acquisitions that we shouldn’t complete and close the deals we should. In addition, the terms of the deals we close will be much more favorable to us because of Arpeggio's wise counsel.

We retained Arpeggio to prepare us to present to potential investors. Arpeggio was able to respond quickly and help us on a very tight timetable. They were responsive, creative, and completely transformed the way we prepared and delivered our presentation. Arpeggio helped us with all aspects of the presentation, from the script, to images, messaging and even helped us re-work the fundamental business model. After Arpeggio helped us, we came in a close second at a highly competitive business competition and we are now one of 8 companies out of over 500 applicants accepted into an incubator that also provided funding.

Highly recommend them, you won’t find better.

Arpeggio was highly professional with extensive knowledge on valuation services for my equitable division buyout negotiations. Arpeggio saved me from being railroaded into a bad deal. As part of the agreement equitable division agreement, I did have the right to select the valuation firm to perform the appraisal. Arpeggio assisted me in the selection of professionals, was involved in the interview process and educated me on the negotiation outcome. And with Arpeggio's services, the outcome was a positive and very pleased to have had him represent my interests. I highly recommend Arpeggio for valuation consulting services.

Arpeggio's credentials and experience speak for themselves. Arpeggio's financial analysis and modeling are very thorough and comprehensive. He asks the questions that need to be asked and develops his reporting based on sound analysis. For me what differentiates Arpeggio and puts them at the top is that they have an uncanny ability to keep an acquisition on track and keep all parties focused on the final goal, closing a fair and successful deal. Arpeggio has the ability to cut thru all the distractions, focus on the key points, manage all party expectations and emotions, and negotiate a fair and favorable deal. Having Arpeggio on your team will be a real asset that will pay dividends.

When approached to sell my company, Arpeggio Advisors provided a professional and timely valuation of the company which eased the transition toward the sale. Arpeggio's points leading to the assigned valuation were clear, concise and fair. I would definitely recommend his services and firm to those in the market of acquiring or selling companies.
