Deal Rumors: Deny, Deflect, and Disclose

Rarely am I able to suggest that anyone follow the example of a politician, but these unique creatures show ways that people often handle sensitive communications during an M&A process.  During every campaign cycle, we observe numerous candidates perfecting the time-tested techniques of denying and deflecting challenging questions.  Although I despise politicians’ verbal maneuvering and lack of transparency, I respect how they achieve their main objective of preventing discussion of a topic that they want to avoid.  With this background, below I consider several methods that people use

What Our Clients Say

President & CEO

Omega Sea

"EdgePoint provided expert guidance during my ownership transfer process. They presented strategic and financial buyers and helped me understand the advantages of both options. They did an outstanding job."

“Selling a business is difficult. It is a complex and daunting task. Often the transaction is complicated by intense emotions. This was especially true for me as the 4th generation owner/operator of Central Warehouse Operations, Inc. I needed a partner in this adventure who would take control, focus solely on my best interest and track the thousands of details capably. I needed absolute confidence, complete trust, top flight financial savvy and more than a little emotional support. "

“We’ve worked with EdgePoint since 2008, when they helped us acquire Macro Technologies of Kirkland, Washington by creatively structuring and sourcing multi-layer financing. Macro made our company much larger and more valuable, and EdgePoint continued to help us prepare for an eventual sale. When we began the sale process, they were hands-on with every key aspect of the deal, including finding motivated buyers and getting things back on track several times. They used buyer competition to negotiate a higher price and better terms. It was great to have EdgePoint on our team.”

President & CEO

SIFCO Industries (NYSE: SIF)

“EdgePoint was the right choice for our divestiture. They gave us small firm attention and big firm results. They brought to the table a synergistic UK buyer that is the perfect fit for our industrial equipment, supplies and service business, and then they got the job done.”

Former owner and President

Geartec, Inc.

“Several years ago, I received an offer to buy my company. It was interesting, but seemed low, so I engaged EdgePoint to advise me. EdgePoint promised an orchestrated bidding process to achieve the greatest value and delivered much more than promised. I was and remain delighted with every aspect of the process. The professionalism and attention to detail with my better interests always in mind were exceptional.”
