M&A Building Blocks Cover
Download Introduction to the Deal (PDF, 795 Kb)

This resource will feature a series of articles that provide an in-depth look into different aspects of M&A transactions from start to finish, such as confidentiality agreements, negotiating deal protections and advising special committees. While the emphasis is on deals involving public companies, BLG's M&A Building Blocks is also applicable to private M&A.

The first instalment in the series, Introduction to the Deal, outlines key threshold issues and process points that must be considered in an M&A transaction, such as due diligence, approvals, financing, structure and timetables. While every deal is unique, these process points and issues will typically be of importance to both purchasers and sellers.
