Based in suburban Chicago, eDoc Communications provides print and integrated marketing solutions for a blue-chip client base including major national retailers, financial service and insurance providers, and a host of other well-known consumer brands. To augment its full array of in-house printing capabilities encompassing offset and digital printing, eDoc specializes in managing marketing initiatives for its clients through an outsourced model by leading direct mail, email, and cross-media & multi-channel marketing programs. Founded in 1999 by three printing industry executives, the Company was introduced to Promontory Point Capital during the fall of 2019, and shortly thereafter, engaged PPC to explore strategic alternatives for the business.
Given Promontory Point Capital’s significant prior experience within the printing and graphics communications sectors, PPC quickly prepared a detailed Company Profile regarding the eDoc Communications business and immediately began confidential discussions with a variety of potential strategic acquirers. PPC’s streamlined engagement provided eDoc’s shareholders quick market feedback from a strategic audience and delivered competing alternatives to achieve the shareholders’ stated goals. After having discussions with various strategic parties, a strategic transaction involving Lake County Press provided the best outcome for the Company’s customers, employees, and shareholders. The transaction involving eDoc Communications and Lake County Press closed during the second quarter of 2020. Read press release.
