SASI ENGAGEMENT

The relationship with Adaptec spans multiple years and covers a range of strategic activities. SASI was uniquely positioned to add value due to our deep knowledge of the NAS market and the Snap Server NAS business. SASI drove the process from identification and selection of potential strategic acquirers through negotiations and critical deal points in the purchase agreement. Keys to success included understanding and articulating the core assets of the Snap Server NAS Business and how it could be leveraged by potential acquirers.
