Strategies for Buying & Selling SMEs

25 Videos – 8 hours 51 minutes

From a buyer’s point of view, this course highlights the major risks and problems likely to be encountered during the acquisition process, with guidance for their avoidance or mitigation. Process and commercial failures are examined and the necessity for a sound acquisition plan is emphasised.

The objective of a seller should be to achieve the highest price subject to the least onerous terms and to walk away from a transaction with measurable and finite liabilities. From a seller’s point of view, this course examines common errors and pitfalls in the disposal process and emphasises strategies for realising maximum value on a disposal.

Understanding Corporate Finance Documents

14 videos – 4 hours 27 minutes

The course focuses, from a practical point of view, on the content and terminology of specific documents and their intended consequences.

Particular problem areas are highlighted so that corporate financiers will achieve an appreciation of the objectives that their lawyers should be seeking to achieve on their behalf.

Such knowledge should enable commercial negotiations to proceed more smoothly and potential ‘deal breakers’ to be identified at an early stage. Problems can then be resolved informally as they arise rather than in marathon negotiating sessions where the positions of the parties may have become entrenched.

Commercial Due Diligence for Buying and Selling Companies

15 videos – 5 hours 14 minutes

Due diligence can never eliminate risk but, methodically undertaken, it will reduce the level of surprise post acquisition. This course explains the objectives and procedures of a thorough due diligence investigation relating to the acquisition of companies and businesses.

Practical advice is given on the fundamental principles, techniques and procedures of a due diligence exercise and on the different objectives in the due diligence process, covering commercial, financial and legal due diligence and also the more specialised areas of investigation.

The roles and obligations of the financial advisers, reporting accountants and solicitors involved in a due diligence investigation are separately examined with emphasis on examples of problems that might arise as a result of inadequacies in the extent of the due diligence process.

Understanding Sale & Purchase Agreements

18  Videos – 4 hours 13 minutes

A “good deal” is a function of both the terms under which an exchange of contracts takes place and the price paid or received on completion of a sale and purchase agreement. A high price is no good to a seller if a large portion of the proceeds of sale needs subsequently to be handed back to a buyer in order to compensate for breaches of warranty. Similarly, a low price is not particularly advantageous to a buyer if the assets acquired prove to be subject to unexpected defects for which no redress is enforceable against the seller.

The drafting of a Sale & Purchase Agreement seeks to ensure that a buyer receives what was anticipated and that a seller can walk away with confidence that its continuing liabilities are both known and quantifiable. As a compromise between these two extremes, the drafting of warranties and indemnities identifies the risks in a deal and decides upon whom they should fall.

Understanding Loan Documents & Security

21 videos – 3 hours 20 minutes

The course focuses on the content and terminology of example loan documents and their intended consequences. The types of loan, the structure of a loan agreement and the types of security are explained.

Important danger areas are highlighted (from the points of view of both the lender and the borrower) in order that they may be appropriately provided for.

Participants will gain a clear understanding of the objectives of the parties and the key the points for consideration. The normal negotiating compromises are illustrated in respect of specific clauses.

Joint Ventures & Strategic Alliances

22 Videos – 3 hours 57 minutes

The course focuses on the nature, structure and objectives of joint ventures and strategic alliances and highlights the requirements for effective corporate partnership.

You will learn to assess whether a proposed joint venture is likely to be the most effective means of promoting a company’s activities into new markets, product lines or services.

Emphasis is placed upon the identification of a suitable partner and upon the establishment of a workable structure, an effective management and an efficient exit route.

The legal framework and related tax consequences of particular types of joint venture and strategic alliance are also outlined within the overall context of an essentially practical course.
