Negotiation of an Agreement in Principle
You can count on our expertise for all the aspects involved in negotiating an agreement in principle.We will take care of addressing issues essential to carrying out the process and to creating an agreement that satisfies both parties involved. Here are some of the points addressed during the negotiation:
  • The price and terms of payment;
  • The structure of the transaction (purchase of shares or assets, merger or partnership);
  • The due diligence scope;
  • The transaction timeline.
Our experienced team will make sure that nothing is overlooked during this important step.
Due Diligence Management
This step is central to a transaction!During due diligence, we assess the crucial elements of a successful acquisition: legal, tax, financial, operational and environmental aspects, among others. Our goal is to maximize your chances to ensure that your new acquisition is as profitable as possible.This work assures you that the acquisition price is accurate and that the company is viable for the long term. Also, if applicable, you know whether certain situations might have a negative impact on the process. This point is especially relevant if you want to renegotiate the terms of the transaction or if you want to withdraw.

Transaction Stakeholder Management
We know that an acquisition project cannot be carried out without the collaboration of several external stakeholders. These specialists are chosen based on their expertise and their knowledge about the company and type of transaction.Our experience in managing collaborators, repeated and refined over the years, is an asset that today allows our clients to stay focused on their business while we manage the excess interactions that a transaction inevitably generates.If your acquisition project requires the assistance of accountants, lawyers, external evaluators or specialists, we will be able to make the most of their skills, avoid duplication, and get the best value for money for their services and skills.

Purchase Contract and Closing the Deal
Drawn up by a lawyer, the purchase contract includes the conditions and guarantees that protect you against different risks, such as those brought to light during the due diligence phase. This legal document can include, among other things, indemnity, confidentiality, non-solicitation and non-competition clauses.Vigilance is necessary, and a detailed contract prepared by a professional can save you a lot of money while providing protection against major risks. At Moreault, we guide you and ensure that the purchase contract meets your needs.To close a deal, you can be assured of our team’s full cooperation and its support throughout the closing meeting.
