BGF has been excellent for us. We’ve got a great addition to our board, providing helpful guidance. In addition to that, we get​ great access to other CEOs, Directors and FDs with whom to discuss any issues.​ We selected BGF because of its patient investment strategy, they’re in it for the long-term, not some two or three-year investment cycle.
