Our seasoned experts at D.F. King will strategically and proactively guide you through a tender offer. We understand that tender offers can be a challenge. Sometimes, even market rumors of a tender offer can have a significant impact on a company’s shareholder profile and investor reactions. In these situations, certain long-term institutional and retail investors may reduce their holdings in a company that is the subject of a tender offer, while hedge funds, arbitrageurs, and other event-driven investors establish significant positions. We’re primed to help.

As your trusted partner, D.F. King takes immediate action to analyze the specifics of the tender offer and critical factors affecting the likely outcome so we can consult with you to make a strategic recommendation. We provide you counsel on a comprehensive communications and mobilization strategy that effectively advances your platform. By providing real-time analysis of the investor response to the offer and trading activity, and feedback from various shareholder constituencies, you will always have the insight necessary to make informed decisions, proactively reach out to key stakeholders, and avoid any unforeseen consequences.

Regardless of your role in the tender offer– whether the target or the bidder– you can rely on D.F. King’s team of seasoned experts to develop and flawlessly execute a customized strategy that guarantees you’re well informed and ready to make successful decisions.
