He further stated that Belcan shares their commitment towards excellent customer service and looks forward to continuing the success that they already have been witnessing by being a part of this robust, thriving company.

As per the credible sources, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP was the financial advisor and Kirkland & Ellis LLP was posted as legal advisor at Belcan. Moreover, BakerHostetler was the legal advisor and Seabury Securities served as financial advisor to TransDigm Group.
