Looking back with the client
“With the help of Match Plan, we have successfully linked our company to a large multinational in a 100% share transaction. Erik Smidt and his colleagues have succeeded in guiding us through the complicated international sales process with always a lot of enthusiasm, commitment and knowledge without losing sight of our principles.”- Adrie Huijbregts, Trident

“In retrospect, it would have been a very difficult story to arrive at this successful acquisition without the expertise, knowledge and commitment of Match Plan. Despite a very good understanding and working relationship between the buying party and us, you still end up in situations that could break the deal and / or damage the future relationship. Match Plan has been the ideal buffer for this, coming up with alternative solutions at the right times. Throughout the entire process, I have always had the confidence that our interests were well represented. ” – William Winters, Trident
