Jon Gill says: "We were delighted to support Barclays and the management shareholders in delivering this transaction. We continue to see a high level of activity in the technology sector, particularly involving private equity sponsors and their portfolio companies, and this transaction is a further example of our track record in delivering successful outcomes for all stakeholders. It was a pleasure to assist the Lakeview team on this deal and we wish them and KCS well."
Adrian Carey, chairman of Lakeview, comments: "Jon Gill and all the team at TLT performed extremely well on this transaction. Their advice and guidance was always excellent and their responsiveness and tremendous hard work was very much appreciated by all the selling shareholders."
