Seale & Associates’ Approach

Seale professionals began a competitive auction process, in which Seale identified all strategic and potential buyers. Subsequently, GE pre-empted the process, and Seale managed a preferred buyer process while using its research and relationships to leverage deal terms.


Seale used its relationships in the industry and potential to expand from the preferred buyer process to a competitive auction to successfully negotiate a transaction on seller friendly terms and conditions.
