Over several years, KSA consulted with us to help groom the company our family is so proud of to create maximum value and to give us the best options for our transition plan. Ultimately KSA put Cara Donna in front of the right audience of potential acquirers and helped us complete the plan. In the final analysis, there's no higher praise than to say, 'mission accomplished'. Thank you Bill, Chris and Carroll for a job well done."
