OUR APPROACH

Giving you the right advice to launch, raise & grow faster.

1/Confidentiality agreement

This is to protect any confidential information the seller discloses to the buyer, for the purpose of the parties assessing whether to proceed with the transaction.

2/Term sheet

This is a short-form document that records the key commercial terms of the proposed deal, such as the price, any conditions precedent, the scope of any restraints to be given by the seller and target milestones for the deal.

3/Due diligence

 This where the buyer conducts financial, commercial and legal investigations into the target company to determine the market value of the shares or business being acquired.

4/Negotiate definitive transaction documents

This is where the parties negotiate a detailed share sale agreement or business sale agreement, and any other related transaction documents.

 

How do mergers work?

A merger involves two companies combining. Usually, the smaller company (called the “target”) will sell its business to the larger company (the “acquirer”), and the shareholders in the target will get shares in the acquirer, instead of cash.
