Berenson & Company, Inc. Key Developments
Greenwood Hall Mulls Acquisitions
Mar 27 15
Greenwood Hall, Inc. (OTCPK:ELRN) is looking for acquisition opportunities. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Greenwood Hall, John Hall said, “We believe there are strategic acquisition opportunities for Greenwood Hall in the marketplace, and we are exploring this avenue as a means to accelerate the company's growth.” According to him, acquisition opportunities in the education space could include larger firms struggling with legacy issues, perhaps in the education publishing space, as well as smaller venture capital-backed education technology firms that lack relationships and struggle with product distribution. Greenwood Hall can attract acquisition candidates, says Hall, because it is already well established and can ‘open doors’ for such companies. Greenwood Hall has engaged Berenson & Company, Inc. as a financial advisor to assist in exploring acquisitions for Greenwood Hall.
