Why Legal Help is Important

Whether you are purchasing, selling, restructuring or making any other major decisions regarding the future of your company or business, it is important to seek help from experts who are experienced in this particularly complex area of law. The right legal team will identify any risks involved in a transaction and inform you of the right direction to take in order to best protect your interests.

The team at Blackstone is greatly experienced in all aspects of corporate transactions and has a deep understanding of the processes involved and how they will affect you and your company or business. There are a number of factors to take into consideration. The decision to buy a business will ultimately depend upon your ability to access the required funds. Careful consideration needs to be given as to how exactly you intend to do this. If the money is to be borrowed from an external source, there will inevitably be interest obligations and the term of the loan must also be factored in.

The method used to value the business is of critical importance and more often than not they are valued by a multiple of profit. Asset-based valuations, meanwhile, subtract the value of the business’s liabilities from its assets, while entry valuations ascertain what it would cost to build the business from scratch. Discounted cash flow discounts the value of cash flows over time to reflect risk.

Sometimes, the valuation figure includes elements of several methods. Ask the seller which method(s) they used to arrive at the valuation and double check their calculations with reference to relevant financial records. Additionally, try and identify anything else, not accounted for in the valuation, that could make the business more or less valuable, such as disruptive consumer trends or technologies on the horizon.

Thorough due diligence of the company and its assets and liabilities must also be ascertained.
