Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions are the terms given for selling a business and buying a businesses, from the sole trader who runs a small shop, to the multinational PLC listed on the stock exchange.

Mergers and Acquisitions include:

The maxim “buyer beware” is very much true for acquisitions, and as part of any sale or purchase, you would expect there to be a due diligence exercise undertaken by the buyer.  As a buyer, you would expect to receive a report setting out the key risks that have been identified as part of this due diligence.

There are a number of ways to structure a deal with payment mechanisms becoming increasingly complicated.  We have experience dealing with and negotiating non-cash deals, earn outs and deferred payment arrangements, which include provision for completion accounts.
