PUBLIC:

They evaluated my company as a potential acquisition for one of their portfolio companies. They are very involved with their portfolio companies in seeking out acquisitions and ran point on the due diligence process. We spent quite a bit of time on the due diligence process and even had a phased approach to limit the risk of exposing too much information. In the end the deal did not get consummated. While I will never know if there were serious or just gathering competitive information I would counsel entrepreneurs to have a phased due diligence process and to not invest substantial time unless they can get ongoing reaffirmations of value and interest.
