This article presents a generic analysis of M&A structuring aspects in Australia. It also provides an overview of the most common M&A transactions: eg. private equity transactions, takeovers, schemes of arrangement, management buyouts and joint ventures. It concludes with a brief look at the role of third party M&A advisers and the effect of the global financial crisis on M&A practices, thereby highlighting the environment in which M&A structuring takes place and potential risks that arise when such structuring is unsubstantiated.
