Edper's Edward BRONFMAN dies at 77
Shy millionaire was one of the country's top businessmen
By Jacquie McNISH and Paul WALDIE, Tuesday, April 5, 2005, Page B3
Edward Maurice BRONFMAN, the bashful millionaire who put the Ed in the powerful Edper corporate empire, died yesterday after a long battle with colon cancer.
Mr. BRONFMAN, 77, was a slight and painfully shy businessman who avoided the media and deferred most corporate decisions to his advisers and younger brother Peter, who died in 1996.
Their company, Edper Investments Ltd., a contraction of their first names, reigned in the 1980s as Canada's most powerful business conglomerate, with control of some of the country's largest real estate, natural resource and financial services companies. By the late 1980s, Edper's 40 publicly traded companies accounted for more than 10 per cent of the Toronto Stock Exchange's value. Its holdings once included Noranda Inc., Trizec Corp. and MacMillan Bloedel Ltd.
After Mr. BRONFMAN withdrew his investment in Edper in the early 1990s, he devoted most of his attention to such philanthropic ventures as the United Jewish Appeal, Hebrew University and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
In 2001, he set up a $1.5-million endowment for research into mood disorders.
He named the grant after his sister, Mona, who committed suicide in 1950 at age 26 after suffering from post-partum depression. "I felt it was time to talk about this and bring it out into the open and help people face their own inner devils," he said at the time.
"My father was much more comfortable doing his philanthropy than he was moving in the business world," said his eldest son, Paul BRONFMAN, a Toronto film and television producer who has Multiple Sclerosis. "He pretty well let his managers make most of the business decisions."
Paul BRONFMAN said his father had been battling cancer for four years and became seriously ill a few months ago. He said he is convinced his father stayed alive for his grand_son Andrew BRONFMAN's bar mitzvah last weekend.
"It was bittersweet," Paul BRONFMAN said. "He was too sick to attend, but I am convinced that he hung on long enough so that we could have the festivities for my son."
Edward and Peter were sons of Allan BRONFMAN and nephews of Seagram Co. founder Samuel BRONFMAN. The brothers were known as the "poor cousins" because they were shut out of the distillery firm after their father died.
Initially, Edward and Peter earned most of their money from dividends on their Seagram stock, which they reinvested haphazardly in such ventures as bowling alleys in Quebec. Their luck changed in 1968 when they hired Jack COCKWELL, a 27-year-old Montreal-based accountant who was born and raised in South Africa.
A demanding investor, Mr. COCKWELL persuaded the BRONFMAN brothers to divest their $25-million stake in Seagram stock and reinvest it in undervalued Canadian firms. That original capital grew over the next 30 years until at one point the valuation of the companies controlled by Edper was thought to have exceeded $100-billion.
"Edward had much more interest in some segments of the business than people realized," said Mr. COCKWELL, now group chairman of Brascan Corp.
One of Mr. BRONFMAN's great loves was hockey.
He and his brother owned the Montreal Canadiens from 1971 to 1978, when the team won the Stanley Cup four times.
Paul BRONFMAN said his father sold his interest in Edper in the early 1990s because he had grown uncomfortable with the company's controversial reputation as an aggressive corporate player.
His funeral will be held in Montreal tomorrow, followed by a memorial service in Toronto.
