SC&H Capital Advises Insight Policy Research on Sale to Westat
I want to thank SC&H Capital for advising and guiding us during the entire transaction process. Their ability to help us work through challenging issues was key to reaching a successful closing.”
Anne PetersonCo-Founder Insight Policy Research
Built on a foundation of rigorous research, Insight has more than 20 years of experience conducting quantitative and qualitative research for government and private sector clients. Their unique approach combines fact-finding depth with applied, real-world experience to achieve objectives with practical, defensible results.
Given the high-quality, differentiated services offered by Insight, its founders received various inquiries over the years from potential strategic acquirers. Recently, they were contacted by Westat, a long-time teaming partner and well-respected competitor with interest in bringing the two companies’ capabilities together. The founders were intrigued by the possibility but unsure about how to proceed with acquisition discussions.
Insight’s founders engaged SC&H Capital to assist them with the potential transaction due to our extensive knowledge of the government services industry and demonstrated track record of successful sell-side advisory transactions. Our team helped the founders understand the market value of the company, assess and negotiate the terms of the transaction, and support the company through diligence to closing.
