"It has been an absolute pleasure working with you on our mutual clients in the M&A arena.  Rarely do lawyers understand the logistics industry, but your experience in this area is second to none...how many lawyers have a customs license?  Your experience on the buy and sell side is extraordinary, and I feel lucky when we are on the same team. Your financial background helped us avoid a few pitfalls, and I look forward to helping our mutual clients for years to come"

Case Studies - Mergers & Acquisitions

The Problem

Client A had entered into a Letter of Intent to sell his company. When presented with the Purchase Agreement, it had many provisions that would adversely impact the ultimate payout to the seller.

Raymond International Actions

We analyzed the Purchase Agreement and annotated it with proposed changes consistent with industry standard for such transactions. We entered into negotiations with the buyer, their CFO and their attorneys. Based upon our expertise in the industry as well as acquisitions generally, we were able to successfully challenge the presumptions and analyses underlying the prejudicial clauses.

Result

The Purchase Agreement was revised to the satisfaction of our Client. The Client received the full purchase price including all contingency payments. The client continued in the employ of the buyer, has received promotions and raises and is now responsible for all U.S. operations of the buyer.

 


 

The Problem

Client B was a sole proprietor. He died unexpectedly. Under applicable law, his business's license to operate would be immediately terminated thereby forcing the immediate cessation of business with no ability to sell the business or reap any remuneration for it.

Raymond International Actions

We utilized our decades of relationship-building with applicable regulators to obtain a two-week courtesy hold on termination of the business license. We utilized our network of industry contacts to solicit bids from multiple potential buyers. We conducted an expedited sale of the business completing the entire process within the two week extension.

Result

The business continued under the operation of the buyer. The employees were all retained by the buyer. The estate of the deceased owner received a payment of $300,000 that ultimately went to his two minor children for their support and education.
