What You Will Learn
In this course you will learn how a private equity firm secures an "exclusivity period" to evaluate an investment opportunity. This is done by executing a letter of intent, but before the letter of intent is signed the private equity firm must compete with all potential bidders.
Once a private equity investment has been secured under letter of intent, the private equity firm is granted an exclusivity period to close the transaction. This starts the clock and provides a deadline for the work required to complete due diligence and negotiate the definitive agreements. In this course you will learn what is required to close.
This course introduces the Stock Purchase Agreement (SPA). A stock purchase agreement is the primary transaction document for a stock acquisition. In most control private equity transactions this is the document that will require the most negotiation.
