Business Growth Through Mergers And Acquisitions
A business that is ready to expand can do so through a merger with another corporation or by acquiring a new company. A merger or an acquisition can increase a company’s market share, expand the company’s product line and add to the existing workforce all with the ultimate goal of ultimately growing revenues. When two companies combine, due diligence is required to assess and identify the risks and extensive negotiations may be involved. In other cases, the transaction may involve a government entity acquiring an interest in the business, the combination of two subsidiaries or even a subsidiary merging with its parent company.
Some of these acquisitions are vertical acquisitions, where two companies in the same production process join to increase efficiency. Other acquisitions are horizontal acquisitions, which involve the buyout of a direct competitor either to reduce competition or acquire their unique assets. Our business law attorneys at Boon Calk Echols Coleman & Goolsby can help with every stage of a merger or acquisition.
What Is An Asset Sale?
An asset sale is when a company sells its individual assets and liabilities. When a company proceeds with an asset sale, its owners retain the legal entity and sometimes its cash and debt obligations. A business may decide to execute an asset sale for a number of reasons, including to mitigate risks, to open up cash flows, or as part of a liquidation requirement.
