This book shows how to maximize the benefits to be gained from an acquisition, while reducing the risk of failure. It does so by discussing the strategies that are most successful for buyers, the steps and pitfalls in the acquisition process, how to gain government approval of an acquisition, and how to conduct a sufficiently detailed due diligence investigation. The book goes on to address those legal structures that are most beneficial from a tax perspective, how to develop a sensible purchase price, and how to engage in a seamless operational integration.
