What is a merger?
A merger is when two or more businesses come together to reduce their individual operating costs, implement a product or service launch, or collaborate on any other joint effort. The scope of a particular entity merger can vary substantially depending on the specific demands and expectations of each party.
Mergers are classified into two subsets: horizontal and vertical. Horizontal mergers involve the coming together of two entities that previously may have been competitors, while vertical mergers entail the fusion of businesses that complement one another’s corporate interests.
Choose the right registered agent to monitor your merger
Whatever the reason for the merger, the end result is to forge a new entity that is greater than either individual entity’s respective financial position. Given the scale with which certain mergers can affect the economy, they are strictly regulated by government agencies.
In the United States, the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice have final say over whether a particular corporate merger is valid. It is important to note that without the blessing of both regulatory agencies, a merger is effectively null and void.
Given the abundance of legal paperwork that is involved in these matters, partnering businesses are highly inclined to utilize the services of a certified registered agent.
