Whether your transaction is completed by LBO, merger, sale or reverse stock split, Going Private provides the practical and thorough analysis you need to help it survive scrutiny under governing legal standards. Going Private offers pointers on structuring the transaction, preparing the proxy statement and Schedule 13E-3, and defining the roles of the board of directors and committees, independent directors, attorneys, and financial advisors. In addition, it analyzes the entire fairness rule and shifting the burden of proof, state anti-takeover legislation, leveraged buyouts, fairness opinions, squeeze-outs, restructurings, going dark, and the applicability of the business judgment rule to hostile bids for control. The book also provides charts of the principal terms of recent merger and acquisition transactions, and discusses the impact of recent court decisions relating to material adverse change clauses and acquisitions.
