Building shareholder support in SiriusXM Canada going private transaction


SiriusXM Canada was a long-time client that was being acquired by its U.S. counterpart Sirius XM. The firm needed help to build shareholder support for the going-private transaction.

How NATIONAL helped

NATIONAL worked to develop support for management’s view through a dedicated website that included resources for shareholders to assess the value delivered from the transaction, along with media appearances by management and shareholder engagement activities. Our team provided regular media monitoring and trading analysis that enabled a calculated response to the negative attacks from dissident shareholders’ campaign. Management was able to succeed in getting approval and received the required votes at special meeting of shareholders on August 30, 2016.
