Mergers & Acquisitions and the Impacts on Your Credit Department

Thomas Fawkes and Brian Jackiw, Tucker Ellis LLC

Corporate combinations can create unique challenges for a credit department, from a legal, cultural, and human resources perspective. During this presentation, our panelists will discuss the impacts on a credit department resulting from both a merger/acquisition involving your company, as well as a transaction involving one or more of your customers. Among other things, the following topics will be addressed: (i) harmonizing credit department contracts and documents, as well as credit policies; (ii) ensuring that credit protections, including security interests and guarantees, are preserved and maintained post-combination; (iii) preserving culture in a credit department that has just absorbed another credit department; and (iv) using a merger transaction as an opportunity to improve the credit function.

In this case study the participants will walk through a typical construction scenario from a creditor’s point of view. Learn who the players are, liens and bonds and when/how to use them, preliminary notice, managing the process, joint checks, mechanics lien rights and more.
