In its February 2010 issue of Emerging Issues Analysis, LexisNexis published an article by Mr. Aquila and Ms. Sawyer titled, “Speed Reading: Ten Issues to Spot in a Public Company Merger Agreement.” The article outlined the 10 key issues of a merger agreement, most of which relate to price and closing certainty. The authors noted that public company merger agreements are complex and often combine multiple, intersecting layers of business and legal issues, and must be reviewed closely in order for the principals involved to negotiate successfully.
