  • I would like to thank you for initiating our company´s transition from Munich based Matrix Communications to Xplanation Language Services headquartered in Leuven. From your initial step of assessing our interest until final closing of the deal within seven months, the process has been well-prepared, smoothly executed, and took place completely without surprises. The information provided to us about the buyer was well-prepared and you moderated the process of finding necessary compromises in a neutral fashion, to the mutual benefit of both buyer and seller. Almost a year and a half after acquisition, I can say Xplanation turned out to be the company you told us it would be, and it has widened both career opportunities for our employees and our growth potential in the market.

  • In early 2018, after nearly four decades of running a successful translations business, we decided to sell to a trade buyer. We had previously recruited project managers through Adaptive, so were aware of its expertise and the extent of its contacts. Within a month Adaptive had generated telephone calls, visits and several offers from eight serious potential buyers. No time-wasters, only fast-growing companies of weight keen to buy a steady business with some excellent regular clients, and a well-established staff and office set-up.This led to an auction whereby the final offers we received were 20% higher than the first bids, more favorable in terms the ratio of cash to earn-out, and with a shorter earn-out period. We were delighted. The introduction fee payable to Adaptive was less than half the increase in the sale price we achieved. Approaching Adaptive turned out to be an excellent decision. Not only did they secure us a much better deal than we expected, but they also conducted the negotiations throughout clear-sightedly, professionally and courteously. We would not hesitate to recommend them and their mergers and acquisitions introductions service.
