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 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, and negotiation skills required to close the deal.

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, and 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
  • Business Transfer Agreement

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