Becker & Poliakoff

Reverse Acquisitions

Reverse acquisitions are an alternative means for a private company to go public. In a reverse acquisition, a private company acquires a controlling interest of a public company, usually a shell company with no operations, in exchange for the private company’s business. Upon the closing, the principals of the former private company assume control and management of the combined entity, which will be a publicly traded corporation. These acquisitions require careful and thorough due diligence and proper guidance of the transition from a private company to the regulatory environment of a public company.
