vonnie: paul verbinnen says the formidable gatekeeper and crisis &ammunicator is behind many m deals pretty our deals reporter caught up with the founders and ask about the current cycle and
12:43 pm
how they plan to grow their business. take a listen. >> it was formed 25 years ago and the strategic communications firm and we have seven offices, about 50% of our business is m&a transactions activism. inie 5% of our business crisis -- 35% of our business in crisis on everything from ,nvestigations to power outages really quite broad. in the middle is our clients that we work with on investor relations positioning that we have had for many, many years. >> from a reporter's standpoint, you are in intermediary for clients who hire you and reporters. how has the world of you advising clients changed as the world of media has changed more particularly in recent years? george sard: the biggest change is the compression of the news cycle we live with.
12:44 pm
it used to be that we would've mel at a press release of a deal we were melted and it wouldn't show up tomorrow morning. not everything in a 24-hour news out a-- we would mail press release of a deal and it would show up tomorrow morning. -- now everything is in the 24 hour news cycle. paul verbinnen: 25 years ago, we did not have internet or the cell phones. that technology that the challenged big media is also made it possible for people to go directly to their constituency. are in the news every day with the trump administration. how often do you feel like you know where the source of a leak comes from? are you able to share that information with clients? >> the place i would start to say is leaks are prevalent. we have done analysis to show the percentage of major deal
12:45 pm
leaks is up significantly in the last five years. oftentimes, it is hard to figure out where a leak came from. you never really know for sure. you can make good gases in terms of whether there was a motive or not. -- you can make good gases in in terms ofesses whether there was a motive or not. were a book was sent to 20 private equity firms and only three are interested, a link is -- a link would be from the other 17. >> has anything changed in the way you have given advice on a deals, particularly deals about to be announced since donald trump has come to power? are you stressing a deal may create more jobs than six or nine months ago? >> i think that is true. i think that the tendency to
12:46 pm
focus on what washington might care about has been something that has grown over the last 20 years or so. 25 years ago, washington was a bit of an afterthought in announcing a deal. as the administrations have then progressing, or focus from washington or what deals are being done and that is the happening of the last two or three administration ramped up under trump. wherether situation significant part of your synergy coming from closing american manufacturing facilities to move somewhere else, that is not something you would stress in the past and conversely, u.s. jobs that are being preserved or created is now an important message where it might have been secondary in the past. >> a typical deal, who is driving the ship when it comes to figuring out the way you want to message? our most ceos and boards leading you dictate or are you, this is
12:47 pm
how you should do it and the decision is being made by the ceos and the boers even what you may not agree with? >> the ceo and the board has a strong view on why they are doing a deal and they know what they want to communicate, what they want to say and why they are doing it. sometimes you have to spend a fair bit of time to make sure the message is crisp and anticipating the kind of questions they will get to because of the deal and they are inpared to a dress them real-time -- address them in real-time. the ceo have to know why he is doing it and articulating not just to the broader community, his border first is where it usually gets pretty big. >> you can always tweet to the general public, i suspect. >> and one of the things we do is outside advisors who know the company well but is not living there, the rude question that the ceos will get that sometimes
12:48 pm
their own people are afraid to ask. thatit is our experience if you do the right to job, you should be up to anticipate all the questions you will get and spend time you answer them. you went through so the interesting because you were the target of an acquisition. you sold a large minority stake to golden gate. i am. why did you do this to expand the firm? so you guys can take money off the table? >> there were a number of reasons. probably the most important reason is we saw how fast the world has been changing, the digital world, video world, the way people are communicating. we have been investing out of ourown pockets and partners' pockets to advance the business. we had grown until four or five
12:49 pm
offices by then. we wanted to expand the firm because i client wanted us to be in different locations and offer different capabilities. we decided we needed to move faster to be where the puck is moving. >> golden gate was a long-term client and we knew them very well. they were not a nameless, faceless firm. their money is permanent, now looking to raise a fund, a long-term horizon. we felt that we knew them well and they knew as well and they did in oppressive deal of digital -- diligence. >> they have been incredibly supportive. they are looking long-term as george said with permanent capital. if they are interested and incentivizing our partners for the long run. we are is energized now as we were 25 years ago. seven offices globally. we are getting opportunity.
12:50 pm
>> 25 years, how much longer do you 2 individuals think you will be doing this? > as long as george will let me stay. the irony is we were really jazzed about what is going on. , for the foreseeable anure, at the same time once institution that will outlive us. vonnie: george sard paul verbinnen and. above the sharp corners. this is bloomberg. ♪

12:53 pm
there's opportunity and the smaller business names. let's start with uber's difficulties, a lawsuit involving 20 people and more pi led on top of labour. glen kacher: they have been on a run of bad luck. and it has snowballed but underneath that is a company that is incredibly innovative and that provides a tremendous service to its customer base. , it seemseadership like to me that every great technology company goes through a challenging time whether it was google when it was coming up and got painted with a brush of being a brash company and i think it takes time for companies to mature into double down on top leaders and i think we are starting to see those first hires of the management team that's likely to be in place, the four management team,
12:54 pm
not that travis is going anywhere, and place for the ipo. vonnie: do you think an ipo is coming in when will it be? glen kacher: nobody knows for sure. i think there's a possibility 2018, thate uber and is speculation that i hear in silicon valley. vonnie: what about facebook? , arenue to see is growth you still an investor or out of facebook? glen kacher: we are. a very large holding for us. facebook is an unbelievable opportunity right now. we are seeing the average american spend about half of their internet time on social media. and, then on top of that, you look at what percent of the advertising dollars that gets spent on the internet are from social media. it is around 25%.
12:55 pm
there is a total mismatch between usage and dollars. vonnie: one of the stories we were reporting on is an automaker, does it happen with facebook and an automaker combining? glen kacher: facebook is trying to take their content and in a really important part is video content. they are trying to show that everywhere the consumer is. the consumer spends time at home other tv and they made an effort to build an app for interactive tv's. it would not be surprising to see them build a facebook video app to be accessible in a car, probably not to the driver but to the passengers. timee: we do not have much left. i want to ask about china and the difficulties because it decided to not let the currency we can -- we can. -- weaken
12:56 pm
you are very invested in technology companies in china, any fear? see the new we economy, the new service economy in china is incredibly strong. some of the older manufacturing industries are going through a challenge. the economy is going through transition. the internet is absolutely taking off. you just saw yesterday at the malyst today, alibaba, jack with a huge growth forecast. i do not think they have a problem. the debate we will have to get more time you are -- vonnie: we have to get more time you are in town. glen kacher. this is bloomberg. ♪
