“Xcelerate Solutions’ relationship with KippsDeSanto started 13 years ago when Kevin DeSanto started investing time in me and Xcelerate to educate our team on the M&A process and the market trends that were producing the best multiples at a time of sale or recapitalization. We ran a competitive process to select our investment banker and what put KippsDeSanto over the top was their deep understanding of our core business and long-term, trusted relationship with me as our CEO. KippsDeSanto’s reputation in the GovCon mid-market space is exceptional. They have earned this reputation by only taking quality companies to market and for their integrity during the deal process. We had high expectations and Kevin, Sung, and Margo and the entire KippsDeSanto team delivered. They were always professional and were trusted advisors every step of the way. They ran a very competitive process and always acted with integrity, gave their unvarnished opinion on various aspects of the process even when we didn’t want to hear it, and negotiated tough deal points on our behalf. Their team worked tirelessly over long nights, weekends and holidays, side-by-side with our leadership team in pulling together all our materials and coaching us on our management presentations. We always felt like we were one team working toward the best possible outcome for all parties. We will be engaging with them for years to come as we begin the next chapter of our journey as a platform company of McNally Capital.”
