Wellesley, MA—FiscalDoctor Gary Patterson was quoted in an Infoworld article, “Oracle’s Big Gulp: How Will the Hyperion Acquisition Shake Out?” offering his alternative view of the acquisition. The article by Jeff Angus, prominent writer and author of Management by Baseball, is available at
“As someone who helps early stage software companies grow and provide new options for customers, I always hate to lose a major company like Hyperion as a potential exit strategy to motivate technology entrepreneurs to build the next great product,” said Patterson. “In other words, one less potential buyer reduces demand and competition for the fruits of creative designers’ inventions.”
In addition to helping high potential software companies, Patterson helps high growth and middle market companies in the ERM area providing risk profiles. His Fiscal Clinic Model is designed to assess, diagnose and treat fiscal and operational issues that may be inhibiting growth.
Patterson’s extensive experience and expertise translate into practical, hands-on strategies to help CEOs address such issues as attaining corporate goals and vision; identifying, prioritizing and pursuing new opportunities; effectively balancing risk and reward based on existing resources, and; optimizing infrastructure to achieve growth and profitability.
