Why not wait until Episode 50 to start at the beginning? The beginning of M&A (mergers and acquisitions) that is. In the miniseries foretold, legal structure sits as the first building block of M&A.
You'll hear about asset purchases and stock purchases. Don't get drowned out in the verbiage. Hear how the role you play in an M&A deal determines your preferences. For previous reference, Tony Sfreddo (Episode 5) built up quite the government contract portfolio. Does that lead itself to designing a deal one way or the other? Are there variations to asset purchase agreements and stock purchase agreements? Maybe there are more than two ways to skin a cat.
The arrangement bakes-in tax implications. Is there a work around? Allocating purchase price can favor long-term capital gains over ordinary income rates.
Fast forward from the announcement, what will benefits look like with the new owner? Deciding a deal's architecture determines how employees move forward while the ink dries.
