At the first meeting, be clear about your overall objectives from the possible merger or acquisition, and make sure everyone’s needs are heard. Figure out the best way that all parties involved can get the best possible scenario, and begin to discuss terms based around those goals.

It’s also important that a nondisclosure agreement be signed by all parties before moving further in the deal. There will be a great deal of information provided by all parties regarding the status of their companies, which shouldn’t be allowed to be made public during the deal or any time after the merger or acquisition has been completed. These deals can fall apart at any stage, especially during the preliminary stages when things are still up in the air; don’t allow a bad deal to impact the future of your company by not agreeing to a nondisclosure agreement. This protects everyone involved in the process.

Conduct due diligence if you want to protect your company during the process. It doesn’t matter how well a company is presented to you, you need to do your research in order to find out what you can about the people and business you are currently in negotiations with. Research is the key to getting the best deal you can, and you don’t want to find out negative information only after the merger or acquisition is complete.

During a merger or acquisition, you need to obtain the financing necessary to complete the deal. Many times, companies are already prepared financially to acquire or merge with another business, but sometimes these deals can occur unexpectedly, which means a company may be forced to obtain a loan before going further with the deal itself. This type of loan is no different from any other, and the company simply needs to prove their credit before being financed. If there is no issue, the loan will be secured and the deal can be completed.
