Negotiated Sale of Manufacturing Company to Unsolicited Buyer
Our client, a manufacturer of precision shafts and other components, was approached by an unsolicited buyer. The buyer made a purchase offer that enabled our client to sell its business years earlier than originally planned. We helped the manufacturer negotiate a price and structured the deal in a tax efficient manner.
Complex Joint Venture & Multi-Million Dollar Debt Financing of Client
As a Dinsmore client was looking to expand its operation and service presence into a global marketplace, it sought a Hong Kong entity with manufacturing capability for production of its wind energy products that were to be sold under sales/master distribution arrangements in Asia and Europe. Structural, tax, governance, IP ownership, business plans, capital contribution and other issues demanded close attention by client personnel and the legal team. The transfer of unregistered technology, the client’s equity structure, operating in both Hong Kong and the People’s Republic of China, coupled with a complicated business plan and detailed financing aspects, created the complexity of this transaction.
Dinsmore & Shohl quickly formed a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers from areas including Mergers & Acquisitions, International Tax, IP, and Commercial Lending. After a thorough assessment and advice from both the People’s Republic of China and Hong Kong counsel, Dinsmore lawyers negotiated and prepared the complete extensive package of Joint Venture and Financing documents for this complex equity transaction.
