They share Cyberlink’s long-term vision to expand its geographic footprint and existing sales channels while maintaining its focus on customer satisfaction and retention. We are confident that the new partnership can build on Cyberlink’s legacy and allow Cyberlink to realize its next stage of growth.” said Lewis Talbert, a principal and co-founder of Swiftcurrent Holdings, Inc., the seller of Cyberlink.

They did an excellent job in setting expectations and managing the sale process from start to finish. Their transaction experience and strategic guidance were instrumental in finding the right buyer and reaching a successful outcome,” said Lewis Talbert.
