Acquisitions provides a clear and practical examination of all the key stages involved in the acquisition process, from investigating the target and drafting the sale and purchase agreement to completion of the acquisition. The guide also covers some of the particular factors to be considered in the context of asset acquisitions, share acquisitions and transactions funded by private equity, as well as dealing with aspects of pre- and post-sale intra-group transfers.
The book includes a detailed explanation of the TUPE Regulations 2006 and up-to-date coverage of relevant tax provisions. The fundamentals of international acquisitions are considered by reference to the law and practice of England and Wales, but with comparisons and references to the variety of differing approaches taken in other jurisdictions.
