Acquisition Strategy Hits All the Right Notes

 
Case Study

Situation 

When a Husch Blackwell client set its sights on acquiring a leading music education company, it trusted our team to design and execute an acquisition strategy.

Result

The plan we developed began with purchase of the target company’s secured debt from its institutional lenders, and culminated in the acquisition of the target’s business and assets. The process required navigating many complex issues, including the rights of an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), a vast library of intellectual property, rights of multiple creditors, three foreign subsidiaries and physical facilities in four states.
