Michael Rafkind, President of both Reporter's Ink and Five Star, suggests that the settlement is the "start of a new phase for the company [Five Star]". After several months of forensics and litigation support work jointly performed by CGA's Corporate Finance Team and General Compliance Team, a settlement was reached with the Attorneys appointed by the Sellers of Five Star. Both parties reached a mutually beneficial resolution to issues surrounding the assumption of certain liabilities related to the acquisition; this allowed both Buyer and Sellers to save time and money without further need for litigation. To ensure complete transparency, CGA - the firm that represented Reporter's Ink during the acquisition process - recreated the facts associated with the acquisition of Five Star, including a detail of the financial and organizational elements that were considered, as well as elements relevant to the negotiations prior to closing.
