Successfully completing mergers and acquisitions transactions requires an understanding of the legal framework and practical aspects of each stage of the deal. Navigating Mergers & Acquisitions delivers comprehensive and understandable advice for managers, investors, legal and business professionals.

This book provides expert guidance on the legal framework, deal points, and practicalities at each stage of an M & A transaction. It is full of practical, hands-on advice, including: how to prepare the business for sale, or do effective due diligence if you are the buyer; the principal "money issues" in the definitive acquisition agreement; and the positive and negative tax implications of different acquisition strategies.

Using a cookbook approach, this resource helps you to understand the why, when, and how of engaging in the M & A process, and discusses the major aspects of the M & A process, including:

  • Critical early steps in the acquisition process
  • Finance fundamentals
  • Transaction structures that achieve the best economic result
  • Tax considerations for both buyers and sellers
  • Leveraged buyouts and ESOPs

This book also includes an in-depth case study for a middle market company that will take you deep into the technical side of M & A. It will lead you through a wide spectrum of transactions such as asset sales, stock sales, ESOPs, and IRC Section 368 tax preference transactions.
