Summary

Here we find the mechanical ways of describing the different ways a shareholder can be persuaded to part with its existing Shares and thereby agree to a Merger or accept a Tender Offer.

Our friends in the M&A advisory business — they are better paid and more impressively heeled than we — have no shortage of imaginative ways for investors to stump up the necessary to acquire new companies, or parts of old ones the current owner no longer wants, but basically they boil down to (i) being given New Shares (usually in the acquiror, or a “newco” it has established for the purpose), (ii) being paid cash (or given something else that isn’t New Shares, or (iii) a combination of the two.
