"As we have been maturing as a company, our relationships with our clientele and the candidate companies we meet have broadened our visibility into the market and the time horizon for potential transactions," said Rick Murphy, CEO and Managing Partner at Cogent, "there continues to be strong pent up desire to grow and diversify amongst our clients, and we are speaking with more new prospective clients than ever before, so we are confident that the buy-side is getting stronger. Also, Murphy added, "The sell-side candidate companies we meet are just as interested in broadening their own horizons and they quickly understand the right transaction can help them flourish as part of something bigger, or propagate their new endeavors.
Additionally, Murphy said, "The Industry Retail Group transaction we accomplished this summer for our client Vector Security, underscores the fact that companies not commonly thought of as an MSP or an IT Services company are very much aware of the importance of the IT space generally and betting on its longevity.
