Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) in simple terms is the process by which one party buys— whether in whole or in part—someone else’s business. Although M&A can be simply defined, the process is anything but easy. There are dozens of legal implications, seemingly innocuous clauses that can sneak up on even the most careful entrepreneur, and potentially significant sums of money to be made or lost.
ByrdAdatto has developed a five-part field guide series where we discuss in detail the five phases of M&A. Click on the links below to access each part of the field guide:
- Part One – The Letter of Intent
- Part Two – Due Diligence
- Part Three – The Definitive Agreements
- Part Four – Closing
- Part Five – Post-Closing
