While mergers and acquisitions may seem like common business transactions, they are complicated. In particular, publically traded mergers can be extremely complex business transactions. Depending on the specific merger, businesses may be subject to business regulations and government approvals. Despite the particular regulations, mergers can be extremely important business tools that help New Jersey businesses grow.
Sometimes complex business transactions take jobs from New Jersey, and other times, the state benefits. Recently, Valeant Pharmaceuticals International announced that it will be moving ophthalmology company Bausch + Lomb's headquarters from Rochester, New York to New Jersey once Valeant's acquisition of the company is complete.
Businesses big and small are almost always looking for new ways to grow into successful companies. While many small businesses may think that mergers and acquisitions are only for large corporations, they should know that this is not always the case. Small business mergers are an important way that many companies choose to grown and fulfill their business goals.
