Acquiring a Company with Government Contracts: A Checklist of Unique Issues and Considerations

7:30 - 8:30 AM | Networking Breakfast
8:30 - 10:00 AM | Program/Webinar Begins

Pepper Hamilton invites you to join us in our Boston office – or via our simulcasted national webinar – for a discussion of the unique issues to be considered when acquiring a company that does business with the federal government.

There is no charge to attend; however, we encourage you to register in advance if you plan to attend in person to ensure that adequate space is available.

Acquisitions involving government contracts present unique issues – whether the seller is a full-time government contractor or a commercial company with just a few government contracts. These issues must be properly examined during the due diligence process and carefully considered when structuring the purchase agreement. Failure to identify and address unique government contract issues can result in unwelcome and costly surprises after the acquisition closes, including premature termination of the seller's key government contracts, inability to restrict competitors from using the seller's key intellectual property assets or assessments of large fines for the seller's pre-close compliance violations.

This event will address the following key issues:

  • Asset purchase vs. stock purchase
  • "Small business" issues
  • Federal Supply Schedule contract considerations
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Organizational conflicts of interest
  • Cost-reimbursement contracts
  • Compliance risks and extraordinary penalties
  • Government assignment/novation process
