New Top Bidder, Arecont Goes To Auction

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jul 05, 2018

$10 million cash will not be enough to buy Arecont.

Though Arecont signed a purchase agreement with a turnaround specialist, a rival video surveillance manufacturer has entered a higher bid. Now, Arecont will be auctioned between those two bidders.

In this note, we examine the rival video surveillance manufacturer with the top bid, their background and how this could impact the future of that manufacturer and Arecont.
