Aldridge, advised by buy-side M&A intermediary Cogent Growth Partners, recently acquired two MSPs, ENTRUST and Tarrant Tech. On Thursday, June 24th, the former owners of ENTRUST and Tarrant Tech joined Aldridge and Cogent to have a candid discussion around the recent acquisitions and what it took to get the deals done. A few topics that we covered are:

  • Why Chad and his partners originally said “No”, and what changed their mind?
  • How did Chad and Mitch know if Aldridge was a good fit for their people and clients?
  • How Chad and Mitch navigated the decision to “stay or go”?
  • How was the process from initial introduction to close (and the bumps along the way)?
  • What value did the professionals (M&A specialists, attorneys, tax consultants) add?
  • How the integration plan is going so far?

Listen today for a behind-the-scenes look at the M&A experience from all perspectives!
