Covenants not to compete are one tool used by employers and buyers of a business to protect valuable business assets. To learn the basics on covenants not to compete, read our noncompete article from February. It is important to keep in mind that the drafting of noncompetes, whether in the employment context or in connection with the sale of a business, is not a “one-size fits all” process. If you are drafting, seeking to enforce or trying to contest a covenant to not compete, you need to know more than whether the covenant is enforceable as written. You also need to understand how the law governing enforcement of the noncompete may or may not allow a court to respond if faced with an overlybroad noncompete.
How a buyer plans to pay for a business it is acquiring must be decided early on in the process because it can have a significant impact on the timing and complexity of the deal. A buyer may use cash, debt, equity, stock swaps, mezzanine financing, leveraged buyout, seller financing, or a combination of any of these methods to pay the purchase price.
