  • 9Gauge reduced the integration cycle time from over 6 months to 6 weeks. Their experienced finance M&A team became an extension of our team, allowing us to remain focused on our core business during the integration and knowledge transfer process.

  • We brought 9Gauge in to help us (RTSoft) sell one of our leading games (Growtopia) to a strategic buyer. The transaction was a bit more complex than I initially appreciated given it was as a carve out of just 1 game from our gaming company. The 9Gauge M&A team jumped in quickly – partnering with our investment bank to lead the operational and financial sell-side work and creating stand-alone financial statements and operational metrics so we could clearly convey to the buyer what we were selling. The 9Gauge M&A team helped us finalize the deal smoothly and seamlessly so that I could focus on our core business during the M&A process. Their work gave the clarity and confidence the buyer needed to maximize deal value for us. I look forward to working with them again on future divestments!"
