Client Testimonials

“When we needed to raise funds in a Series B Investment, SMG stepped in and provided not only a suite of compelling data-driven documentation but robust strategic analysis and impactful revenue forecasting. Allen and team conveyed a powerful story of our business performance historically and projected forward. With SMG’s help, we reached favourable terms and closed the round successfully.” VC-Backed IoT Startup

“Partnering with SMG gave us tremendous clarity around our financial performance analytics, as well as effective processes that set us on a faster path to higher profitability. SMG also removed the ambiguity and helped us learn critical lessons from our past results, while at the same time enabling us to maximize our book of business going forward. I highly recommend working with Allen and team to take your business to the next level.” Real Estate Investment Fund

“I had the pleasure of partnering with SMG to prepare a sophisticated fundraising presentation and related collateral for a $2B international Investment and Innovation Fund. SMG exceeded our expectations with their expertise and understanding of investments, economics, and fundraising. Allen was highly responsive throughout the process and delivered the project ahead of the due date. He had insightful contributions that significantly improved the overall project, and I would welcome working with SMG again.” $2.0B Investment and Innovation Fund

“SMG guided the CFO and Executive team of my portfolio company in navigating a complex debt refinancing and acquisition project. They worked closely with the company and private equity teams to build a financial plan for the acquisition, analyzed and normalized adjustments to the earnings and prepared a comprehensive financial model for the execution of the project. Allen brought financial acumen and an analytical horsepower that mid-sized companies like ours need, but frequently don’t have access to. His collaborative approach was well received by the management team, who felt he was able to express their ideas and strategies in clear quantitative terms. SMG is now working with several of our portfolio companies on similar projects.” Private Equity Fund with over $1B in AUM

“SMG’s insight was instrumental in guiding us in pivoting the focus of our business. They not only provided actionable financial performance analysis but worked with us to build a high-performing growth model aligned with our business KPIs. Allen’s collaboration with us to build a financial operating model that we quickly implemented into our existing organizational structure was incredibly valuable. Allen’s analysis and financial modeling matched the unique circumstances of our business, positioning our YouTube-based digital distribution business to grow even faster than before.” Hyper-Growth Video Production Network

“SMG was incredible to work with - highly communicative and immediately understood our requirements when assigned project tasks. They did an amazing job in developing a pre-IPO financial and operating model and were always on time and made themselves available whenever modifications were requested. I strongly recommend SMG to anyone that requires guidance in financial modeling but also appreciates strong supporting logic and clear communication of the process.” Pre-IPO Supercritical Fluid Technology Manufacturer
