Siris-Polycom: 'We Like This Deal'
Watch a quick video for Wainhouse Research's take on the new Polycom acquisition deal.
Early this morning the news hit the wire that Polycom has rejected Mitel's acquisition offer in favor of a new, more attractive offer from Siris Capital Group, as discussed in today's No Jitter post, "Mitel Out as Polycom to Go Private."
The team at Wainhouse Research was a bit iffy on the Mitel-Polycom deal from the get-go, as co-founder Andrew W. Davis recalled in this morning's post and as we spelled out in our original reporting on the acquisition (see "Mitel Acquires Polycom: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"). However, we're more bullish on the Siris Capital transaction. Check out my thoughts and opinions on the pending transaction in this quick video clip.
