Energy Content and Media Company Divests Division

Challenge:

Client management had several divisions for content and media divisions, diluting focus and performance of divisions.  Client approached by media giant in the industry to buy division.  Client needed representation to wade through complex issues of negotiating transaction and documenting cleaving off data assets, IP, and employees from company.

  • Quarterbacked due diligence process
  • Negotiated purchase agreement and ancillary documents to protect the assets and market position of the seller, ensuring remaining assets are unfettered in approach to market
  • Closed transaction

Result:

Client sold division to a major competitor in their market, receiving both consideration and terms that met expectations while keeping ability to continue to create offerings in the market and to compete in the market.
