Management teams select Great Point because we constitute the best fit with their own guiding principles and established culture as well as the fact that we have sponsored and achieved success with numerous companies over the years.
Our principal role is to support corporate objectives and provide critical advice and guidance on strategic, financial, and management issues. We also bring extensive experience in helping companies successfully complete the complex process of initial public offerings, financings and mergers and acquisitions.
