Growing or Going – Mergers and Acquisitions
People have many different motivations for choosing to start a new business. Perhaps the drudgery of working 9-5 for someone else began to wear you down. Maybe you decided that you had accumulated enough expertise and experience in your chosen field to strike out on your own or you had an innovative and effective idea for how to improve upon existing models.

Key Points to Consider
There is no question that it is exciting to begin contemplating the takeover of your business rivals in a strategic plan for market dominance. It may also be tremendously flattering when a larger company approaches you about merging your two enterprises. But that initial rush can lead to making rash decisions that are not in your best interests and which may do disservice to your company. And as the process is carried out, the usual stress may be greatly magnified. Key points to consider in these transactions include:
- Cash outlay – if you buyout another company, can your financial reserves cope with substantial depletion?
- Corporate control – how much will control of your company’s product, direction, mission, and operations will you keep or have to sacrifice?
- Financial benefit – does a merger help to bolster your corporation’s bottom line, or does your hard work wind up with diminishing returns due to new contractual obligations?
These and other concern absolutely must be examined more closely so that you don’t leap before you look. Contact a Des Moines business lawyer from LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (877) 327-2600.
