ANALYSIS OF A BUSINESS ACQUISITION
Credit(s) and Type: 1 | Technical Business
Speaker Name: ATTORNEY STEPHEN C. L. CHONG, SHAREHOLDER AT MATEER HARBERT, PA

Learn how to evaluate whether a company is a good acquisition candidate. Mergers and acquisitions allow businesses to increase their market share, expand their geographic reach and become larger players in their industries. However, when one company acquires another, it absorbs the good and the bad. If the target company is riddled with debt, involved in lawsuits and/or marred by disorganized financial records, these issues become the new company's problems to deal with. A good acquisition candidate is priced right, has a manageable debt load, minimal or no litigation and clean financial statements. This discussion will focus on financial statement considerations, letters of intent, and various acquisition contracts.
