What Our Clients Say

Merisis team worked in a very methodical and focused manner to canvas a large range of possible global investors for IARC, after spending time to fully understand our business and the environment. They have a very deep understanding of the financial services sector and were able to anticipate the likely changes to the distressed debt environment and credibly communicate the potential attractiveness of the opportunity. I am impressed with their level of commitment and perseverance and would highly recommend them to anyone in the financial services or other sectors looking for a firm to advise on an equity raising or M&A opportunity.

From the get go, Merisis fully understood our requirements, strategically guiding us through the tedious M&A process and helped us on all the phases. Their guidance to me personally at different stages of this transaction was of great value. The team’s attention to detail, especially in verifying, analysing and scrutinizing heaps of data was commendable and played a key role in ensuring a smooth transition. Further, the team’s ability to provide a quick and prompt response 24×7 deserves a special commendation.

We were growing rapidly and were looking to raise a Series B round to fund our growth that would catapult us to the next level. That’s when we came across Merisis, and they did a commendable job in helping us find the right set of institutional investors. A Series B fund raise is always challenging for any entrepreneur and requires 24X7 support, be it at the time of pitching to Investors, termsheet negotiations, due diligence and finally closure. Hence we would like to thank the Merisis team for playing an instrumental role in the entire Series B fund raising process. Further, they also advised us on raising structured debt, thereby helping us maintain a good debt-equity mix. Really impressed with their level of commitment and perseverance and would highly recommend them to all entrepreneurs who are planning for their fund raise. Thank you and look forward to our continued association.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Merisis team. Thanks for all your help and ensuring that the transaction happens. Hoping to have continued interaction with your team.

I recommend the Merisis team. Thorough professionals, out of the box thinkers in cracking a problem … and very committed

Excellent understanding of financial solutions, never found the team lacking for knowledge or application. And always kept our interests at the top

I chose Merisis for their entrepreneurial spirit, and they delivered.

Merisis have changed my views about investment bankers. I recommend them.

Merisis fully understood the potential of the space, our strategy and the strength of IARC’s deep Indian experience. They were able to articulate the value proposition effectively to a broad group of global as well as a few strong Indian investors and bring a credible group of investors to the table with whom we could negotiate and close both an equity and a fund transaction to provide us sustainable advantage in this space.
