Thank you so much for your immense contribution in putting together the Steris deal. This was a complex transaction. We had seven entities and our entire business was in transition. Yet, you created a straight-forward comprehensive structure to explain, document and demonstrate more than 20 pro forma adjustments, which were fundamental to our valuation. You kept everything on an even keel and promoted a constructive atmosphere allowing both Steris and TRE, and all our advisors, to treat each other with credibility and trust. And your services extended well beyond the business terms, being concerned about my welfare and that or my organization.
We are very happy and appreciative.
We at Molnlycke Health Care appreciated the support of Walden in helping us to align our aquisition criteria, facilitate our approach to the companies that met such criteria and ultimately helpe us to meet our goals and achieve success – a good job well done !!
Integra acquired Jarit Instruments, the Mayfield Neurosurgery System, Neuro Supplies and other companies represented by The Walden Group. Although Walden was on the other side of the negotiating table, they create a constructive functional atmosphere with expert hands-on involvement in solving the many deal issues that invariably arise. They are very sensitive to the tangible and intangible interests of both large public companies and smaller private ones. We welcome working with them, whether they represent us or not.
Three years ago, I was on the opposite side of the table from Walden in negotiating the purchase of a Walden listed business. I was so impressed with the honesty, integrity and effectiveness in which the Walden Group represented their client and treated us as the acquiring company, it made perfect since to ask you to represent us for a potential sale.
I was very impressed with Walden’s deep healthcare clinical knowledge and extensive industry network. Given the shifting landscape of healthcare reform, Walden’s understanding of the underlying dynamics and close relationships with so many industry players were important to how our company was presented and recognized by acquirors.
Walden took pains to prepare us individually and as an organization so that all dealings were as professional as the manner in which we run our business. Walden was always a few steps ahead of the game in anticipating events before they occurred.
Thank you so much for your invaluable assistance in divesting Bell-Horn to DJO Global. As you advised, it was so important to spend the time in advance to organize the company, our financial reporting, our organization and our operations, so that the presentation of our company was Blue-chip, professional and effective. The Walden Group helped create credibility every inch of the way. All this effort and your firm’s interactions with other parties leveled the playing field and created the conditions for win-win negotiations on very attractive valuation and deal terms. There were so many details and subtleties that you kept us on top of. And, when our lawyers became involved, we appreciated your teamwork approach and pivotal contributions in negotiating the definitive agreements.
