After several months of preparation, we went to market in a process led by Corum and we received exposure to a broad range of potential strategic buyers as well as PE firms. This dialogue gave us a much better sense of the value of our solution in a broader product set and the benefits that we could bring to an acquirer. Not just technology, but domain expertise, our customer base, our team, and our solid recurring revenue.
