Why have some of the nation’s most prominent corporations engaged in spin-offs and split-offs? What should you know about structuring these transactions for companies of any size? Finally, there is a book that explains the hows and whys of this vital corporate strategy.

Business Separation Transactions: Spin-Offs, Subsidiary IPOs and Tracking Stock explains the objectives underlying these transactions, the techniques used, and the consequences for all parties.

You’ll find extensive discussion of management’s goals, the significance of stock market conditions, and the legal, tax and accounting issues involved in every scenario — plus sample agreements, registration statements and other helpful documents.

Whatever your reason for contemplating a business separation transaction — improving management focus, eliminating competition between business units, reducing costs of raising capital — this problem-solving guide helps you achieve your objectives while satisfying legal requirements.

You’ll also benefit from discussions of employee benefits, creditors’ rights, and other legal issues that may arise at any stage of a transaction. For anyone who advises management or has responsibility for making key decisions, this book is an extremely worthwhile investment.
