If you are considering terminating your company’s public status through a going private transaction, we can advise you on the advantages and disadvantages of being a private company. While you will eliminate regulatory compliance costs and reduce director and officer liability, you also will lose access to the public equity markets. With our considerable experience in taking companies private, we can help you avoid common pitfalls, address the short-term issues, and meet your long-term goals. Our experience includes assisting with mergers of companies with a newly formed, privately owned entity, tender offers by such entities, and self-tenders by companies with a follow-up reverse stock split.
The breadth of our practice gives you access to teams of professionals with significant experience managing the tax, benefits, securities regulation, corporate governance, and transaction-financing issues associated with going private transactions. Our attorneys seek to create value by efficiently closing optimally structured going private transactions that allow clients to focus on profitable operations going forward.
