Texas Reverse Merger Attorneys
Our experienced mergers and acquisitions lawyers represent clients nationwide
Sometimes called a “reverse takeover” or “reverse IPO,” a reverse merger is effectively a shortcut for private companies seeking to go public. In a reverse merger, the private company acquires the majority of shares of a public shell company, which is then merged with the private company, effectively bypassing a conventional IPO and allowing the company to go public. For many businesses, especially in fast-growing industries such as oil and gas, this can be a powerful route to rapid growth.
The experienced reverse merger attorneys at Brewer & Pritchard, P.C. have structured over 50 reverse merger transactions over the course of the last three decades. If your company is ready to go public, our mergers and acquisitions attorneys may be able to help you seize an opportunity to expand your business.
What are the benefits of a reverse merger?
Again, a reverse merger is an alternative to the traditional means of going public through an Initial Public Offering (IPO). A simple shell company is set up and registered with the SEC, then acquired by the private company in a merger. This process has several key advantages:
- Time – While a traditional IPO often takes months to complete, a reverse merger can be completed in 30 days or less, in some cases. This represents a significant savings of time and energy for management – and helps the company seize time-sensitive opportunities.
- Less dependence on market conditions – In a traditional IPO, the company needs to raise capital in order to complete the go-public process. A reverse merger is purely a conversion mechanism, which means it is relatively insulated from market conditions that may make it difficult to raise capital.
- Minimized risk – Because a traditional IPO requires significant time and is vulnerable to shifting market conditions, we’ve seen many companies try to go public through this process and then fail to complete it. This leads to hundreds of hours of wasted effort and often significant wasted capital. Reverse mergers are fast and minimize this risk.
