Mergers & Acquisitions

Ensuring success for complex transactions.

Alliance is very familiar with Mergers & Acquisitions and especially knowledgeable as to the dynamics of a solicitation process to approve a merger, a spin-off or other business combination. Whether the deal is “friendly” or “hostile,” our M&A/Proxy Contest Group are experts at communicating the benefits of the transaction to both institutional and retail investors. We have been involved in all types of M&A activity including:

  • Horizontal Mergers – between two companies in the same business sector
  • Vertical Mergers – the buying of a supplier in the same business sector
  • Conglomerate Mergers – merger between two companies in different business sectors
  • Strategic Mergers – long term holding to increase market share and customer base

In 2011, the SEC adopted a rule which requires that merger meetings also include a “Say on Golden Parachutes” proposal.  As we do with all compensation matters, our Governance Advisory Group will assist the client with the structure of this proposal to ensure that both institutional investors and the proxy advisory firms are favorable to this resolution.
