Art of the Corporate Deal, 3rd Edition

Availability: In Stock

"The Art of the Corporate Deal takes the layperson and experienced deal maker alike through the process of buying or selling a business from start to finish. Often our clients are surprised by the amount of planning and the number of different steps within the process of a transaction and, although no two deals unfold exactly the same, they all share most or all of the elements discussed by Mr. Lipson in his book. The Art of the Corporate Deal is a worthwhile and easy read to introduce, or revisit, what will be involved once the decision has been made to pursue a transaction"

— Craig Gibson, KPMG Corporate Finance

The Art of the Corporate Deal offers real-world advice to lawyers involved in the deal-making process. Each chapter of this practical, easy-to-use text tackles a specific aspect of the process, providing clear and concise guidance every step of the way. While there may be many references that touch on the various aspects of corporate deals, no other work consolidates all this subject matter into a single work. This comprehensive practice guide covers the three areas that create the foundation of any deal:

  • Determining both the intrinsic and the market value of the seller's company.
  • Achieving the result both parties desire by a creative structuring of the deal.
  • Realizing the result both parties intended by the use of a precise drafting methodology.

Expanded coverage in the planning process, risk assessment and allocation as well as the structuring of a deal is included in this third edition. Use of the Letter of Intent is explored, critiquing both the positive and negative benefits as well as the risks in using this pre-contractual document. The author has also given new treatment to the warranty and indemnity clauses as a tool for shifting and allocating risk. The concept of corporation control is introduced. Cumulative voting of directors and other means to protect a seller’s minority position in proposed mergers or acquisitions are discussed. Various forms of shareholder agreements, checklists, and letters of intent regarding control are included in this new edition.
