Public company M&A transactions The process by which a public company (pc) transaction gets done. PCs have institutional investors, regular scrutiny, and media attention. (Different from private M&A). PC: the threat of litigation is very palpable. Increased transparency of PC. There are many constituents waiting to be critical of you. Perhaps contact Board of Directors. Counsel should gather more information about a possible acquisition deal. You have two corporations, A and B. Usually there is a mating dance between A and B. B should talk to non-executive Director You don’t’ want to go formal, until you are much further along the process. Be low key! Confidentiality agreements (imperfect world) Remember: there is no exclusivity. You are not required to disclose IP, sensitive information, customer lists, etc. Need ways to protect underbidding.
