"We were introduced to SRS by one of our institutional investors," said Scott Darling, Vice President and General Counsel, Danger, Inc. "When it became clear that none of our investors or board members wanted to act as the shareholder representative, SRS was a great option for handling issues related to escrow and indemnification matters, and for managing communications with our shareholders. Now, everyone can remain in the loop during post-closing period."
