Handling Corporate Law Matters Efficiently and Effectively

Dedicated to providing practical solutions at reasonable rates, Orange County Mergers and Acquisitions Lawyer Matt Sumrow understands the need for his clients to keep within budget constraints. He works closely with clients to help the business grow while obtaining legal objectives. When considering a possible sale or purchase of a business, a business owner should carefully evaluate how to best structure the transaction. The two basic ways to structure the sale of a business are either by selling the assets, an “asset sale,” or by selling an ownership interest in the company via a “stock sale.” Or, a merger may be the best option if the sale of stock will result in the target company merging with another company. If the transaction is structured as an asset sale, the buyer has the advantage of acquiring the assets of the business. This includes physical assets, intellectual property, goodwill, etc. If the transaction was structured as a stock sale, the buyer does not have the risk of taking on any foreseeable or unforeseeable liabilities of the target company that would be acquired. As a stock sale, there will likely be favorable tax treatment for the seller and the transaction may be structured in a way for it to qualify as a tax-free reorganization under the Internal Revenue Code. Tax-free reorganizations are often structured as mergers in which all or part of the consideration paid for the target company’s stock is in the form of stock issued by the acquiring company. Other issues to consider in connection with a potential merger or acquisition include: The purchase price to be paid for an ownership interest in the business or the assets of the business Whether any portion of the purchase price will be paid out over time Whether the total amount of the purchase price will depend on any future events (such as requiring an additional amount to be paid to the seller if the business generates over a particular amount of revenue during a certain time period) The desired ownership and management structure of the business after the merger or acquisition is completed (perhaps the sellers will want to retain an ownership interest or management role in the business) The liabilities associated with the business that is to be acquired such as contractual liabilities, tax obligations and pending or potential lawsuits Conducting due diligence on all relevant business, legal and tax issues associated with the transaction (such as analyzing financial reports, corporate records and tax returns)
