Steps to take during a merger or acquisition

In an effort to run a business more efficiently, an organization may choose to merge with a competitor. Acquiring or merging with other companies in Texas can be a complex process. The first step is the due diligence process, during which each side learns more about each other and the proposed deal itself. Ideally, companies will review all aspects of the deal including its financial and technological impacts.

To ensure a successful merger or acquisition, it's a good idea to determine the new management structure before the deal is completed. This makes it easier to implement once two companies officially become one entity. The faster that a new management team is in place, the more confidence that interested parties can have in the deal. There should also be an effort made to identify which types of technology should be kept or dismantled once the merger or acquisition is complete.

There are many ways in which the company can improve after the deal has been completed. These opportunities should be identified during the due diligence process and other steps along the way to completing the merger or acquisition. The entire process should be as visible and transparent as possible to obtain the best results.

After a business transaction is complete, there may be ongoing business law issues to resolve. For instance, the target company could be liable for debts to vendors or a party in a trademark or patent lawsuit. An attorney could advise parties to the sale or merger as to how these issues might impact a potential deal. This may save a business looking to increase its market share from acquiring an asset that might not create a quality return on investment.
