Every good business plan must include a growth strategy and an exit strategy. For most businesses, growth will be organic, but acquisitions may be a part of that growth strategy or an unintended opportunity. In the same way being the subject of an acquisition may be an exit strategy or just an unintended opportunity.
The firm assists companies and prospective investors in evaluating opportunities for mergers or acquisitions whether as a growth or exit opportunity. We prepare and advise clients concerning the preparation of tender offers, letters of intent, acquisition agreements and any related regulatory applications. We also conduct the discussions and negotiations with management and acquiring groups necessary to structure the proposed transactions. In addition, the firm performs due diligence reviews on corporate record, operational procedures, and compliance with certain laws and regulations. We also negotiate and prepare the necessary documentation for stock and asset acquisitions, mergers, and corporate reorganizations.
