In this episode of the Delicious Brain Waves podcast, Brad and Iain chat about the recent Delicious Brains acquisition of Advanced Custom Fields.

Taking a deep dive into the process, they cover everything about the acquisition, from the first discussions with Advanced Custom Fields creator Elliot Condon, how Brad evaluated the product to determine a value, financing options, performing due diligence, when and how to get lawyers involved, all the way up to the final closing and handover.
