Client Testimonial

“Omega Protein has relied on the counsel of TM Capital’s professionals for over a decade. In this transaction, we utilized TM’s structuring and negotiating skills, along with their strong financing relationships, to craft a transaction solution which is transformational for Omega. TM helped us respond to our majority shareholder in a remarkably short timeframe, and the terms upon which TM negotiated the repurchase and financing were, in my estimation, superb.””
