Following Croft & Bender's successful negotiation of the Company's recapitalization two years before, the Company's majority owner, Azalea Capital, LLC, engaged Croft & Bender to complete an exclusive sale process, which included valuing the Company, identifying potential acquirers, drafting the offering memorandum, marketing the Company, selecting a partner, and negotiating the transaction.

Croft & Bender successfully negotiated the sale of the Company to CHB Capital Partners III, L.P. Azalea Capital exited the transaction with a significant return on its investment, and management was provided liquidity while also maintaining an equity interest in the Company going forward.
