Mergers & Acquisitions (commonly referred to as M&A) is often considered a fast-paced, exciting niche of corporate law. And, it is. I love the work I do and my role in M&A deals. It’s apparent to me others find this line of work interesting as well, particularly following the response to my most popular M&A 101 video found here:

So, this is a follow-up to that video, with a greater focus on the process you can expect as a buyer or seller of a business as you continue your merger or acquisition.

This video touches on all aspects of M&A: deal structures, the key players, the motivations for performing a merger or acquisition, considerations from the perspective of the buyer and the seller, and more – most of which I’ve discussed in my other videos.

Here’s a quick rundown in case you want to jump ahead:
0:53 – Step 1: Valuation of your company
2:51 – Step 2: Prepping for due diligence
7:14 – Step 3: Assemble your team
10:04 – Step 4: Plan the selling process
11:13 – Step 5: Finding a buyer
14:25 – Step 6: Signing a Nondisclosure Agreement (NDA)
15:02 – Step 7: Basic due diligence
15:44 – Step 8: Laying out basic terms in a Letter of Intent (LOI)
18:31 – Step 9: Intensive due diligence
21:52 – Step 10: Document the deal with a Purchase Agreement
