The acquisition signals a chapter of growth and development for the company, one that we very much hope to be continually involved in. We’re pleased with the smooth and successful outcome of this deal for all involved and look forward to working with Spectrum and Qura in the future.”

We’re grateful for the support and expertise of the team at BPE – I have worked with John for over 20 years in various ventures and we know each other pretty well by now.”
