|The ever-increasing number and diversity of international acquisition transactions means that every successful company needs to develop or acquire the resources to compete on an international scale. |
If your business needs to:
-Access foreign markets;
-Provide foreign production or marketing capacity;
-Obtain regulatory approvals;
-Acquire complementary product or service lines;
-Spread product, service or market risk and reduce costs; or
-Identify and exploit underperforming assets or businesses
… then you need to be sure you’re acting on the most up to date and professional guidance available.
Now in its fourth edition, the internationally acclaimed International Business Acquisitions provides you with a clear guide to the major legal issues and the process of informed due diligence in each jurisdiction.
This user-friendly work acts as an easily accessed desk reference for lawyers, business executives and others concerned with the acquisition of the securities or business assets of a company located outside their own national jurisdiction. It is also directly relevant if you are representing the sellers in such transactions, as you will need to anticipate and prepare for the foreign buyer’s requirements and concerns.
Despite significant harmonization within the EU, the legal practices, requirements and pitfalls relevant to cross border transactions tend to be different in every country. However, increasingly common standards and documentation are now being introduced. The essential country-by-country presentations described here will help to guide you through the differences. To help you compare them as easily as possible, the author presents each country contribution in a common format.
As in previous editions, the subject of due diligence is treated in a separate chapter, with individual country annotations.
