The BlackArch team gave me straightforward, frank advice throughout the process, and worked hard to get this non-standard transaction across the finish line.  Having worked with a number of firms both large and small over the years I will always go back to them.  Unlike large firms always looking to the next deal, BlackArch consistently protected my best interests.

The entire BlackArch team brought the highest level of skill and resolve to executing this transaction.  I am in awe of the quality of their work and the way they inspired our entire team to be the best we could be.  They put a framework around the process and our company that was completely honest and straightforward while highlighting all of the best things about Superior.

The entire team at BlackArch Partners worked literally day and night to meet an aggressive schedule and pull the many diverse players in this transaction together.  Their deep executive team was a real asset to our management team and the process for all parties.  I gained the utmost confidence in their advice and trusted their judgment as they managed the process to a successful close.  I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again in the future.

From our first meeting through the close of the sale, we were impressed with the BlackArch team’s energy, ideas and attention to detail.  BlackArch delivered exactly as they said they would, which resulted in an on-time closing and an excellent outcome for our shareholders.
