Firm Closes Sixty Million Dollar Deal

On December 31, 2010 the firm’s Mergers and Acquisitions group successfully closed the sale of our client’s high-tech manufacturing business to an equity capital fund for cash, debt, and equity consideration of approximately $60,000,000. Much of the management of the business has been retained, and Wilke Fleury continues to provide legal services to the client as general corporate counsel under the new ownership. As is typically the case with business mergers, negotiation and closure of the deal required legal counsel in many areas of business law including contract, employment, Uniform Commercial Code, entity formation, real estate, environmental, and other areas.
