  • Ken Phelps, Camargo Pharmaceutical Services"ArkMalibu's efforts have resulted in Camargo being a better company. They led us to recognize and leverage our cultural values and we look forward to rapidly growing our company in the coming years"
  • Greg Morris, G.E. Aviation"When we engaged with ArkMalibu, we did so after investigating a number of other firms. We were impressed by ArkMalibu's depth of experience, and most importantly felt that we would get top level attention throughout our process. Often larger M&A firms will initially court clients with their top management and talent, but during the actual process they hand the clients off to less experienced staff. Our experience with ArkMalibu was completely the opposite. We were always working with their top management, complemented by experienced staff specific to the needs that came up. Malibu's broad background, personal attention, experienced negotiating capabilities and passion to see us achieve the highest value results led to a very successful sale of our company that exceeded our expectations."
  • Gar Liebler, CEO of LandArc"ArkMalibu has what it takes to maximize a deal and get it over the finish line. They were tenacious, insightful, and offered excellent counsel throughout each stage of our transaction. We couldn’t get our deal done on prior attempts with big-name attorneys and advisors, but ArkMalibu made it happen, and with far less stress."
  • Burke Byer, President and CEO, Byer"ArkMalibu was a fantastic partner in and architect of the deal with Benjamin Steel. From the search process to the final negotiations, they made sure we were protected and that our best interests were served, getting us a deal value that we felt we deserved. Throughout the deal there were many difficult decisions that had to be made, and it was essential that we be able to rely on and trust our partner. ArkMalibu always gave us objective information and wise counsel, which helped us make good decisions. Things can get emotional during the transaction process and ArkMalibu did a great job managing highly charged situations and getting the deal across the finish line."
  • Bill Krul, CEO Miller Valentine Group"We chose ArkMalibu over Wall Street firms because of their local expertise and hands-on capabilities. The company not only protected our best interests but also provided around-the-clock service and advice. Their expertise and insight helped move the deal to completion."
