“Without Cypress’s help, we would not have received so many proposals. Since the beginning of the pre-deal structuring process, we had complete trust in the team’s ability to help us achieve the best investment to the company. They had a complete understanding of the moment we were in, prospecting investors aligned with our strategy and the founders’ objectives. Their dedication also make viable the closing of a deal in keeping the interests of several partners and the investor. We are grateful to the Cypress team for their excellent work.”
