"With a tight timetable and a Brexit backcloth, Ian and Simon did a great job in shepherding the banking syndicate through the process, allowing us to focus on the commercial aspects of the transaction. This was a competitive process and Spectrum’s hands-on support helped us to win the deal and deliver the right banking package."Alastair Weinel, Investment Director, LDC (relating to ByBox deal)
