Bryan Sansbury of Aegis and Max Gagliardi formerly of Ancova

I wanted to hear about Bryan and Max’s recent merger so I had them on to tell me all about it.  Bryan’s company Aegis is a leader in hedging advisory for commodities; Max’s company Encova has a leading technology platform and strong marketing expertise in the physical markets.  I’m always skeptical of deals that seem like perfect fits, tons of synergies, asset-less but people based businesses.  But this merger seems to have really worked.  Cool discussion on culture, fit and complementary skill sets.  And of course, having Bryan and Max on, we geeked out on a lot of energy trends  - nukes, AI, electricity demand, heck we even chatted about campus protests and the media.  These guys are great.
