Bell-Horn Orthopedics

Thank you so much for your invaluable assistance in divesting Bell-Horn to DJO Global. As you advised, it was so important to spend the time in advance to organize the company, our financial reporting, our organization and our operations, so that the presentation of our company was Blue-chip, professional and effective. The Walden Group helped create credibility every inch of the way. All this effort and your firm’s interactions with other parties leveled the playing field and created the conditions for win-win negotiations on very attractive valuation and deal terms. There were so many details and subtleties that you kept us on top of. And, when our lawyers became involved, we appreciated your teamwork approach and pivotal contributions in negotiating the definitive agreements.

Sanbor Corporation (China)

Now that the dust has settled, I just wanted to thank you for your fortitude and resilience in getting our deal done … at last. I now know how hard it is to complete a corporate sale, especially one in China. When the world was falling apart in 2008, a former suitor could not complete our deal and we were all burned out, you picked up the pieces and helped us start afresh with new energy. The Walden Group pinpointed new acquirers needing a high-end China-based engineering and technical production company and then navigated the maze one more time to a happy conclusion. There were so many “deal wires to connect” and you helped put everything together. Even at the end when special pass-through tax allocation expertise was required by both sides, you brought in just the right talent to solve the problem.

Columbia Medical & Surgical, Inc.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent service you provided in helping us to find a buyer for our medical company. Your extensive experience, knowledge and contacts in the medical field provided us with a broad base of qualified buyers. We appreciate your daily contact and advice during the process to keep us up to date with the companies which were the best prospective buyers. Your personal treatment of us during such a hectic time made us feel you were a true friend with our best interests at heart

- Larry & Emily Smith

Degania Silicone Ltd. (Israel)

We want to express our deepest appreciation for the time and effort that you invested with us in order to bring the acquisition of Arthesys S.A. (Paris, France) to a successful conclusion. This cross border transaction was particularly complex because of the Arthesys ownership composition, and the foreign financial, legal and the cultural nuances that were involved. We were immensely impressed by your negotiating skills, patience and ability to assist the various parties to bridge their differences over the many months of negotiations. We look forward to working with you on future transactions.

- Amos Nahir, Managing Director

Katena Products, Inc.

Michael and I would like to thank Walden Group for successfully concluding the sale of Katena Products, Inc to Cortec Group, but most of all, I want to thank you personally for the superb job you did to help and guide us through this transaction. From the day we started talking to you about the possible sale of Katena, you carefully guided us through the process of selling a business, a process we had never experienced before. Your help in assembling the numbers and company details for a presentation to potential buyers was invaluable.

With your firm’s deep knowledge of the medical field and the investment banking business, you helped us to carefully select from a list of potential buyers. You always gave your full attention to every detail and answered the many questions we had. You made all of the arrangements for our presentations and guided us through the process with such diligence that, after the third time we were able to almost do it in our sleep. While we knew we had built a great company, we were still shocked when we received more than 6 serious and ‘informed’ offers in short order.

You were always there for us every day throughout the stressful “due diligence” process, and your counsel and, when necessary, diplomatic mediation between buyer and seller, as well as their respective law firms, cleared several logjams. Your experience, excellent judgement and professionalism prevailed throughout the entire process and I know we could not have done it without you. You are a professional and I will be glad to recommend you to any future client.
