Business & Corporate Mergers
During business mergers, multiple companies are combined into a single entity. This creates a more prominent company from smaller companies. It is usually done to increase market share, reduce business costs, enhance innovation, and gain access to resources. There are various types of mergers, including:
- Horizontal Merger: fuses multiple businesses that are part of the same industry.
- Vertical Merger: combines companies that provide distinct supply chain functions for a joint service or good.
- Conglomerate Merger: unites companies in differing industries and operating in different geographic areas to allow for the cross-sale of products when the target market is similar.
Business & Corporate Acquisitions
A business acquisition is a company’s cash or stock purchase from another company. This process is usually done for the benefit of assets and profits. Furthermore, it is sometimes done for market share and expansion or in order to eliminate competition. Having an experienced corporate lawyer is essential during acquisition so that potential risks are considered. An attorney is especially helpful in situations where there is a hostile takeover. This happens when a company attempts to acquire another company by going directly to its shareholders instead of to the company’s management.
