Merger and acquisition transactions are complex, time-consuming matters that require a great deal of effort on the part of all parties involved. An orderly process is essential for both buyers and sellers. Sellers will want to take steps to make sure that the transaction is completed in a timely manner while minimizing risk to the ongoing business operations. At the same time, buyers will want to make sure that the value that they are receiving from the seller’s business is commensurate with the purchase price and that the buyer’s goals for entering into the sale will truly be met post-closing.
