For immediate release


Stratiqa Inc. Merges with Censere Group

With immediate effect, Censere Group and Stratiqa Inc. have merged their respective businesses. The combined group will initially have 18 offices across three continents and will offer an expanded range of services to better serve clients. Brett Shadbolt, CEO of Censere and the combined group, stated "This is a significant development for Censere. Through Stratiqa we now have a dedicated premium service provider which complements Censere's existing valuation and advisory services. It significantly expands our capabilities in North America and we are sure our Asian clients will benefit from the expanded range of services.”

At the same time, Matthew Katzeff has joined Stratiqa Inc. as a Director. Matthew is based in Stratiqa's New York office and oversees Stratiqa's business in North America and beyond. Since beginning his career at the Blackstone Group, Matthew has developed a highly successful career predominantly focused upon Mergers & Acquisitions and strategic advisory, Fairness Opinions and Valuations. In addition, he has significant experience both in the US as well as Asia.  Speaking of the merger, Matthew commented "I am very excited to be part of the expanded group. Many of Stratiqa's clients either have, or are contemplating, acquisitions or expansion in Asia. Censere's existing network of 13 offices across Asia and Oceania is the ideal platform to extend Stratiqa's reach into these markets, while also providing expanded coverage to Censere's clients in the US."

Stratiqa will continue to operate under its own brand as a member of Censere Group and remains focused on delivering complex valuation services such as fairness opinions, expert witness opinions and strategic advisory. Censere will provide local market support to Stratiqa throughout Asia and Oceania and will benefit from Stratiqa's existing presence in New York and San Francisco. Stratiqa has also recently established an office in Singapore and will continue to build this as its first office in Asia for premium valuation services. 

The merger of Censere and Stratiqa comes within 12 months of Censere's entry into the US market. Zaid Sultan, Director - Censere Houston said "The combination of Censere's existing offices in Houston and Washington DC, together with Stratiqa's offices in New York and San Francisco, greatly expands our North American reach. This will undoubtedly benefit clients in the long run."
