Ascento Capital represented my company Proant, a leading IoT antenna company in Sweden, on a sell side M&A transaction. Ben Boissevain led the deal and did a terrific job. He conducted a global search with a wide outreach to over 100 targets. We had serious interest from companies in the US, Europe, and Asia. Due to the vigorous auction process, the valuation of Proant exceeded my expectations. We selected Abracon in the US as the buyer since it was the best strategic fit. Ben was very professional, action oriented and provided excellent advice. I highly recommend Ben to others for M&A advisory services.

I worked with Ben on a second transaction together, NIC's acquisition of senior living industry market analytics platform VisionLTC. Ben Boissevain was instrumental in the success of NIC’s acquisition of VisionLTC. Mr. Boissevain’s senior level connections in the tech sector, decades of experience in M&A, and his background in corporate law, all contributed to a successful transaction.
