Mergers & Acquisitions
In recent years, companies planning for growth are not only aiming for IPO but also considering buyout. A buyout is the purchase of shares of the target company in which the acquiring party gains control of such company. A buyout transaction involves lengthy negotiation and detailed documentations and agreements. Negotiation for buyout may fail merely by the decrease of purchase price. Parties should ensure that details such as guarantees and obligations by the target company should be clearly defined in agreements and other important terms for a successful buyout are presented in agreements. As such consultation with legal expert is necessary before proceeding with a negotiation of a buyout.
