Prioritizing Our Clients First
“DecisionPoint and Andy Agrawal was our first and best decision relating to the sale of one of our portfolio companies. As a private equity fund, we deal extensively with agents, but Andy Agrawal went above and beyond what we typically see in a sale process. Andy was a trusted advisor and provided us with excellent advice throughout the sale process. He was always available and worked tirelessly through the process to help us get the deal over the finish line. Our transaction became complicated with multiple bidders and Andy assisted us and provided us with excellent advice throughout the negotiation process. His knowledge and experience were a huge asset and we would not have had as successful an outcome without the assistance and sage advice from Andy Agrawal. I would highly recommend Andy for any technology deal. It was a pleasure working with DecisionPoint every step of the way.”

“Doug’s contacts were invaluable in moving discussions forward with firms like AT&T, Cisco, Ericsson, IBM and Nortel.”
“DecisionPoint was instrumental in the successful sale of our company. Tom Wilson and the team led our board through a complex process and provided us expert advice and turnkey services, from helping to value our company and negotiating deal terms, all the way through to successful completion. While the board originally debated the merits of even retaining a banker, DecisionPoint’s knowledge and experience were invaluable during every facet of the deal. It was a great decision to retain them.”

“We engaged Andy Agrawal and DecisionPoint to help us complete a strategic process that resulted in OPX Biotechnologies successfully selling essentially all of its assets to Cargill. We found DecisionPoint and Andy to be the perfect partner for this process and transaction. Andy was a confident and trusted advisor who we could turn to throughout the transaction process to navigate the demands, needs and requirements of all stakeholders to arrive at the best deal for all. Andy understands that price is not the only indicator of value and he was able to work with OPX and its investors to determine the ideal structure that not only maximized the price, but also the other key value points that were important to the key stakeholders. Andy is very high energy and is available virtually 24/7 to ensure the deal gets done and gets done right. He worked tirelessly through the entire process – from the initial strategic review to soliciting proposals to LOI to due diligence to definitive document to closing. He is a trusted advisor that can help through the entire deal.”

“It is with great pleasure that I write about my positive experience with DecisionPoint and its team, headed by Andy Agrawal. Andy and his team were engaged to sell the assets of Kraus Global, a world leader in designing and manufacturing alternate fuels (Hydrogen and Compressed Natural Gas) dispensers. Andy skillfully and professionally facilitated a deal whose outcome both the buyer and seller were very pleased with.
Andy provided excellent insight and invaluable guidance that played a key role in helping the parties involved resolve a variety of issues encountered during the due diligence and negotiation process. In particular, his strong interpersonal skills, demeanor and experience were invaluable as we drew near to the finishing line.”

“Tom was a trusted advisor throughout the entire process, even to the point of assisting and advising our attorneys and investors. As we got into negotiations, deal structures, valuation considerations, compensation discussions, etc. Tom’s operational knowledge and advice was beyond valuable and was the key factor to the success and closing of the deal.”

“I found it rewarding to work with Andy Agrawal. He understood our business, our objectives, our sensitivities and expectations in the M&A transaction. Andy very quickly developed rapport with our team and the buyer. All the people involved in the process found Andy as a very reliable and credible negotiator which helped close gaps quickly and ultimately enabled us to close the deal in four months. This was a “quadruple win” to (i) our previous VC owners; (ii) CFN Precision; (iii) our new owners; and (iv) to our customers.”

“We found the process to be much easier than we had expected. The DecisionPoint team was available 24/7 for whatever guidance we needed, and Andy Agrawal was anticipating what would happen next so we were always ready for information requests and questions. Because the constant communications and trust-building involved, we were able to move along with confidence on both sides of the deal, believing the transaction was fair, and I felt sure the Company would continue its growth and successful operations. We had lots of opportunities for success, and we got the deal we wanted. I don’t know how the experience could have been any better”
Thank you for helping us through these past few months. We appreciate all your hard work and advice; we will never forget it!

“Maveron first worked with Andy on the sale of a software company in our portfolio. He ran a first class process (in a difficult situation) and successfully closed a deal in six months after bringing three offers to the table, including one from a party that had previously passed. After almost 10 years in the venture capital business, I can say this was the first time an investment banker exceeded my expectations.”
“Tom has an ability to understand complex businesses and articulate their value proposition in unique ways to different strategic buyers. These talents, along with his effective negotiation skills, were instrumental in a successful sale of NuTech.”
