Mergers and Acquisitions

There are three ways to build financing for your M&A deal. You can make payment by cash or by shares of the company’s stock or use financing options that combine different ratios of the first two options. A business can quickly expand and build through mergers and acquisitions, so this is an important and viable area for companies to explore.

In the past, the only place you could find M&A advice was at an investment bank. Larry A. Harman, P.C. can offer you in-depth knowledge in the field and guide you through the legal and financial ramifications of the process as it involves your particular business.

Why do businesses choose mergers and acquisitions?

  • Reduce costs
  • Increase market share
  • Raise profit margin
  • Sell to different markets
  • Reduce tax liability
  • Increase workforce

What an experienced M&A lawyer will look for
As an experienced law firm with a background in finance, when analyzing a merger and acquisition, the first thing we do is valuate the business. There are several ways to accomplish this depending on the type of business. An accurate valuation is important to the strategy your business will employ during the merger and beyond, especially when forecasting future gains and losses.

There are many factors that should be considered during the process. Is this a hostile takeover? Does a joint venture make more sense? What differences are there between private and public deals? What is the difference between a joint venture and a strategic alliance? An experienced lawyer with a strong financial background can take all these factors into account when advising you on the optimal strategy to achieve your goals.

One stop for M&A transactions
When doing this type of financing with your business there are typically many regulations you must follow. Taxes must be filed properly, and there are myriad SEC requirements as well as state and federal regulatory laws. We have the experience you need to start your merger or acquisition off on the right foot.
