Mergers & Acquisitions In Nigeria: Law & Practice

ISBN: 978-978-942-151-0

“The book presents the law and practice of mergers and acquisitions in Nigeria, followed by crucial issues such as legal and commercial setting of M&A , due diligence, preliminary documentation, the valuation question, tax aspects of M&A, implications on labour relations, and good references to successful mergers and acquisitions in Nigeria. This book constitutes a bold initiative at stating the law and practice of M&A in Nigeria in the form of a practitioner’s book for the benefit of all who are interested in the subject. For students of the subject it is a one-stop-shop, which sets M&A in its practical context.

For practitioners, investment bankers, lawyers, executives, board members and policy-makers it should be good reference and compulsory reading.

I must commend the Learned Senior Advocate for this pioneering step in writing this book, and therefore regard ‘Mergers and Acquisitions in Nigeria: Law and Practice’ as an authoritative text on the subject. I recommend the book to all practitioners and persons interested in Mergers and Acquisitions in Nigeria”.
