Mergers & Acquisitions
Mergers and acquisitions combine knowledge of legal and accounting departments.
Here at Sciberras Advocates, thanks to our combined knowingness, we are able to handle international and local mergers and acquisitions, sale of business, transfer of business, corporate re-structuring and re-organisation, transfer of shares, issue of new shares, and business valuations. These activities, particularly acquisitions and mergers, involve multiple operations through which a company becomes the owner of all assets and liabilities of a company, or else, two companies become one.
We are prepared and knowledgeable enough to assist buyers, sellers and investors in such business trades. These include negotiations, corporate restructuring, drafting and reviewing of legal agreements, taxation, VAT planning and due diligence procedures. This while also providing the necessary legal and administrative coordination, guidance and assistance on all aspects relevant to such mergers, acquisitions and other related business activities. Apart from the services listed, some of our other services include performing an evaluation of your business and advice on the selling price and assisting you to prepare the business for the merger or the acquisition.
Our office in Malta also has experience in providing legal counsel to SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company) also known as a blank check company. SPACs are increasing in popularity as an alternative to the traditional IPO, offering a source of financing and efficient and effective route to go public. Sciberras Advocates in Malta is able to draw SPAC M&A and hold tax capabilities to guide clients through the entire SPAC cycle.
Similarly, we can assist with SAFE (Simple Agreement for Future Equity) which is basically an agreement between an investor and a company that provides rights to the investor for future equity in the company. This is similar to a warrant but without determining a set price per share at the time of the initial investment.
At Sciberras Advocates, we believe that in such business trading activities, it is crucial to be prepared with the necessary legal information before signing any deals. Let us assist you and guide you in these circumstances.
