Disclaimer: Our intent with this section of the website is to present potential deals that appear to be in the pipeline. These potential deals are ones where i) the company has indicated that it is "seeking strategic alternatives", ii) there has been an unsolicited bid for a company as mentioned in a press release by the company or iii) news about the deal has been published by a leading news organization like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Bloomberg, Financial Times, The Washington Post, Reuters and The Associated Press. As best as possible we will try to avoid baseless rumors.
