Craig Chambers, Chairmen, Adapt IT, shares his experience of working with us.

Merchantec Capital advised the Independent Board of Adapt IT when they received an unsolicited offer by a JSE Listed Company to acquire Adapt IT through a share swap mechanism, followed by an all cash offer by a Canadian Listed Company. As discussed by Craig this was a complicated process which required a deep technical understanding of the various regulations such as the Take-over Regulations, Companies Act and the JSE Listings Requirements. Merchantec Capital offered pragmatic advice and guided the Independent Board to the successful conclusion of the process.
