Crosstree’s Role

Crosstree Capital Partners served as exclusive financial advisor to Enthalpy Analytical. Crosstree took steps to strategically position each division appropriately depending upon fit with the prospective buyer. During a global recession that hit the pharmaceutical services sector particularly hard, Crosstree could structure an attractive all-cash deal for the owners of Enthalpy.

We were impressed with the intensity and thoroughness of Crosstree’s preparation. Their team worked tirelessly on analytics and positioning, ultimately giving us the flexibility to efficiently navigate various strategic options involving our business and each of its two divisions. I wouldn’t think twice about using Crosstree again.
