Hi [Recipient First Name],
Are you available at the moment?

Okay [Recipient First Name], I want you to take care of this for me personally, I have just been informed that we have had an offer accepted by a new international vendor, to complete an acquisition that I have been negotiating privately for some time now, in line with the terms agreed, we will need to make a down payment of 30% of their total, which will be $39,797.20.
An announcement is currently being drafted and will be announced next week, once the deal has been executed, for now I don't want to go into any more details.
Until we are in a position to formally announce the acquisition I do not want you discussing it with anybody in the office, any question please email me.
Can you confirm if international wire transfer can go out today?
