Deal Dynamics in a COVID-19 World

Posted 2:15 PM by
In an uncertain market, cash is king. And the private equity world is sitting on record levels of cash, waiting to put it to work. According to a recent report, $830 billion of buyout-related dry powder was sitting with private equity funds at the end of last year, and more than half of it sits in North America.

How Wayfair v. South Dakota Changed M&A Due Diligence

Posted 5:50 PM by
The U.S. Supreme Court recently shifted one of the foundational principles that determine how a state can tax business transactions within its boundaries. This change will have a cascading effect in the deal space. In South Dakota v. Wayfair (Wayfair), the court held that an out-of-state company could establish nexus by exceeding certain thresholds of dollar volume or number of sales into the state, a standard known as “economic nexus.” Moving forward, potential buyers and sellers need to understand the new complexities the Wayfair decision has added to the due diligence process. It is more important than ever to have deep knowledge of what the target business sells, where it has established nexus, and whether or not it has complied with obligations in those states.

Posted 12:30 PM by
When an owner decides to sell his or her company to an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) trust, one of the most impactful factors in the transaction is the company’s value. The ESOP trustee establishes the company’s value, which affects the total transaction price. It is vital that the price is as close to the company’s actual value as possible so the seller is compensated appropriately and the participants of the ESOP are not overpaying for the company.
