My partner and I entered a buy side agreement with JANAS. The firm identified numerous targets and arranged financing. Working as a team, we identified potential targets and met with several lenders. Ultimately, I accepted an executive position with an international Fashion Industry company that engaged JANAS to pursue the acquisition of a company identified in the original search. JANAS professionals arranged and attended meetings, prepared the Letter of Intent, negotiated with the sellers, and interfaced with the acquirers M&A Department resulting in the successful acquisition of the targeted company. All in all, my experience with Janas was excellent.

CEO, Prym Fashion

The advice and focus by JANAS that our company became more financially transparent turned out to be the best advice ever. The insistence of JANAS professionals showed an understanding of many challenges. The approach recommended resulted in a highly successful IPO on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

Janas brought to Slovenia a knowledge of Merger & Acquisitions that did not previously exist in such detail. JANAS demonstrated an ability to continue with a difficult transaction for a company controlled by the Slovenian government. The transaction closed – after 37 months. We would never have closed this transaction if we did not have Carter Freeman on our side. His exceptional emotional intelligence and his eagerness to close the transaction made it work. Thank you, Carter!
