About this Course

A complete M&A transaction requires planning, strategy and foresight of the several players involved. You must have come across terms like mergers and acquisitions, slump sales, asset purchases, joint ventures, etc. This course helps you to deconstruct these concepts.

The most important assets that any M&A practitioner can possess are good business acumen, an understanding of what drives the businesses and industries in question, the negotiation skills required to close the deal and the application of practical laws.

This intense course on M&A will take you on a journey of what goes into structuring a transaction, what are the tax implications of structuring, what are the advantages of a slump sale over asset purchase, what are the legal compliances of various structures, etc.

This course will then introduce you to transaction documents and explain the essential clauses of the following documents—

  • Shareholders’ Agreement
  • Share Subscription Agreement
  • Share Purchase Agreement
  • Joint Venture Agreement
  • Technology Transfer Agreement
  • Business Transfer Agreement

At the end of the course, you will learn how to review transaction documents, know what are the things to look for in a document and how to negotiate like a transactional lawyer.
