In a statement regarding the termination of the acquisition process, CEO David Oswald commented: “After nearly two months of negotiations, we believed we had reached a deal that everyone could be happy about. Unfortunately, during our examination of the company’s assets and liabilities, we uncovered several issues that the seller attempted to hide during negotiations. As excited as we were to add several million dollars’ worth of assets to our portfolio, we are not willing to close a deal that isn’t rock solid.” This move reinforces Branded Legacy’s commitment to financial responsibility, and their willingness to prioritize long term success over short term optics.
