Brett Griffith, President, Alpha Systems

“We are grateful for the expertise and professionalism that FOCUS brought to this transaction.  The sale of Alpha Systems to Databank would not have gone as seamlessly as it did had it not been for FOCUS.  They understand the needs of both buyers and sellers and ensured that the transaction went as smoothly as possible. Their bankers bring a methodical execution strategy that delivers consistent results.  This is the second transaction FOCUS has completed for us, which demonstrates the confidence we have in their process and in their firm.”

John Frick, Chairman, AirVault

“The strategic fit provided by this transaction is exceptional; our acquirer counts nearly every airline in the world in its customer base, which provides an exciting growth path for AirVault. The FOCUS team has been a valuable partner to us over the years, and we would not be celebrating this transaction without their help and guidance.”
