»FotoFinder was celebrating its 30th anniversary when one of the two founders planned to retire in 2021. Aquin helped us to reshape our family business with a broader team of shareholders and an investor in order to prepare for its promising future. The Aquin team proved to be not only masterful in all phases of the process, but also understanding of our situation as a family business and the particular corporate culture. Out of around 50 applicants, we were able to find an investor who was a great fit for our company and shared our values. Despite all the tension that such a process entails, working with Aquin has been a pleasure for all of us. For us, Aquin is therefore not just a B2B business partner, but a H2H companion, from human to human!«Andreas Mayer, Julian Mayer, Kathrin Niemela, Rudolf Mayer & Mo Daryaie,FotoFinder Systems GmbH

With meticulousness and professional negotiating activity, Aquin made this outstanding deal possible. I would therefore like to express my sincere thanks to Aquin, also on behalf of my wife.«Hubert Maier(Executive Partner),Schulz-Electronic GmbH

»Starting a company and developing it for a lifetime is a challenge. But I was not aware that it almost takes more to let go and give your own company into new hands. This is only possible with professional, experienced consultants. What is really decisive, however, is the good feeling of being understood and being able to trust. Thank you!«Nils Holger Moormann (Founder),Nils Holger Moormann GmbH
