Mergers of equals may prove fruitful


Even a friendly merger of equals or the acquisition of one company by another can be a complex business transaction. Colorado residents may be particularly interested in a recently proposed merger between two suppliers of two of the world's largest electronics companies -- Samsung and Apple.


In the merger, RF Micro would buy out TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. RF Micro produces amplifiers while TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., produces radio frequency chips used in wireless electronic devices such as cellphones. RF Micro would pay $1.56 billion in the buy-out. It has been described as a merger of equals. The shareholders of each company would own a stake of 50 percent, and each company will split the board of directors. The newly formed company would have two headquarters and would be given a new name. The deal is anticipated to close later this year, pending regulatory approval.

Because there is little in the way of overlap in the two companies' products and revenue, the newly formed company could combine their strengths and see a revenue of as much as $2 billion, resulting in the opportunity for growth in the areas of aerospace/defense, network infrastructure and mobile devices.

Complex business transactions such as mergers and acquisitions need to be done carefully. There are often many steps that must be taken for the process to be carried out legally and with due diligence. In addition, many mergers and acquisitions must meet shareholder and regulatory approval. A mergers and acquisitions attorney could prove to be helpful in such situations and can lead their clients through every step of the process.
