Sometimes even market rumours of a tender offer can have a significant impact on a company’s investor 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.

At D.F. King, an AST Company, our seasoned team of professionals takes immediate action to analyze the specifics of the offer and critical factors affecting the likely outcome, and it makes strategic recommendations on a comprehensive communications and mobilization strategy that advances each client’s platform. By providing real-time analysis of the investor response to the offer, trading activity, and feedback from various investor constituencies, our clients - whether the target or the bidder in a tender offer - have the insight necessary to make informed decisions, reach out to key holders, and avoid any unforeseen consequences.
