Description

The report provides a detailed understand and analysis of how and why companies enter merger and acquisition deals. The majority of deals are acquisitions whereby the acquirer acquires the target company in a cash and/or equity transaction.

Understanding the flexibility of a prospective partner’s negotiated deals terms provides critical insight into the negotiation process in terms of what you can expect to achieve during the negotiation of terms. Whilst many smaller companies will be seeking details of the payments clauses, the devil is in the detail in terms of how payments are triggered – contract documents provide this insight where press releases and databases do not.
