Texas Business Lawyers for Complex Business Transactions

When it comes to sustainable business growth and consolidation, mergers and acquisitions have long been essential strategies. As complex transactions that involve buying, selling, merging, or divestitures - mergers and acquisitions have significant potential to shape the dynamic of a particular company, or the industry in which they operate.

While the potential rewards of a successful merger and acquisition are considerable, so are the risks. With transactions subject to a range of legal and regulatory issues, as well as the need to clearly define roles and responsibilities, working with experienced legal counsel is critical to navigating hurdles, protecting your company’s interests, and creating a foundation that facilitates growth and future success.

Mergers and Acquisitions Explained

Mergers and acquisitions refers generally to the consolidation of companies or assets. Although used interchangeably by some, there are distinct differences between the two:

  • Mergers – A merger generally involves two (or more) companies of similar size that agree to move forward as a single business entity.
  • Acquisitions – In an acquisition, an acquiring company purchases another company’s ownership stakes (or a majority stake), with both maintaining a separate legal existence. This often includes a target company’s stocks and assets and allows the acquiring company to make decisions without approval from a target company’s shareholders.

Mergers and acquisitions can entail a number of different transactions, as well as various legal, market, and contractual issues that are company- and industry-specific. They can be used to achieve specific objectives, such as expansion and greater market share, increased synergy, tax and operational efficiency (economies of scale), new niche offerings, or diversification and risk reduction.

Transactions involved in mergers and acquisitions may include:
