The reporting and analysis that was done for our valuation exercise was thorough and very intelligently presented. We were given all the necessary information including various options, so we could make an intelligent decision. We were brought into the decision making process—it wasn’t treated like a “black box." The team at DGC was direct, smart and a pleasure to work with.
