Tuesday Morning with Justin Ft. Dan Cook

posted by TrueNorth Employee Benefits on Monday, March 22, 2021



Most transactions in the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) arena are transactional, or what is often referred to as stock transitions. Last year, roughly 80% of all global activity was a stock transition, where a company purchases both the assets and liabilities of an acquired entity. This means the purchaser is buying the entity’s claims experience and any human capital legal liabilities that may occur due to a compliance issue.

During an M&A transaction, many organizations overlook underlying benefits-related issues. Omissions are common, particularly with respect to employee benefits which is why it is important to seek counsel from a benefits expert who understands the liability and can identify issues. 


The primary goal of TrueNorth’s M&A Risk Diligence practice is to support these business transactions. TrueNorth’s aim is to provide advisory and faciliatory guidance and protect the client’s interests. 

TrueNorth Principal and Practice Leader, Dan Cook, has been involved in hundreds of M&A transactions. Engaging a professional M&A team, such as that which Cook leads for TrueNorth, can make the M&A process more efficient and cost-effective for all parties.
