Haskell has been supported by PNC since 2002 for its commercial banking needs.  As the Company has continued to scale (i.e., revenue, profitability, product portfolio, customer base), PNC has continued to expand its lending partnership with Haskell.

Fairmount Partners, a leading merger and acquisition advisory firm, based in West Conshohocken, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia, PA, acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Haskell in this transaction.  Royer Cooper Cohen Braunfield LLC served as the Company’s legal advisor.
