We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Business Transactions professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Business Transactions consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives.

Our Business Transactions consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Business Transactions talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Business Transactions talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Business Transactions consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

Everything you need to know about Business Transactions

What are Business Transactions?

Business transactions are an important part of any merger and acquisition deal. Negotiating these transactions according to Fintalent’s business transactions consultants, is a critical component to a successful deal and can mean the difference between attaining the target company’s assets or simply walking away empty-handed. The key is to clearly identify the needs of all parties involved before searching for potential solutions. Understanding what makes each side tick will help you land on a mutually beneficial agreement.

What are Business transactions in M&A?

Business transaction is one of the main points of discussion for the merger and acquisition deals. It is a process where a company can transfer its assets (or shares) to another company. It is an important part of every business deal because it transfers all the rights, obligations, and benefits from one business to other. Here are some different types of business transactions:

  • Asset Purchase Agreement: It transfers ownership of certain property or intellectual property from one company to another with appropriate compensation. The buyer will receive full possession and control over the “target asset” transferred by seller. Asset purchase agreement is also called an asset purchase contract.
  • Asset Purchase and Sale Agreement: This type of transaction takes place when a buyer acquires all rights, benefits and obligations related to intangible assets like patent/trademark, etc. from a seller. As the name suggests, this kind of business deal is made easy by an agreement between two parties involved in it.
  • Asset Purchase Agreement with Stock Option: It is kind of transaction where a buyer acquires all the assets including tangible and intangible property like brand names, patents, trademarks etc. and stock option of the target company. In this transaction, a buyer can either take over the management and control of the target company or he/she can leave it to run as it was being run by the seller before the deal.
  • Asset Transfer Agreement: This type of agreement is made for transferring assets including tangible or intangible property from one party (buyer) to another (seller). The buyer will get full possession and freedom to use these properties within a period of time mentioned in this agreement. These properties may be any fixed and non-fixed assets like machinery, patent, land, real estate etc.
  • Asset Purchase Agreement with Right to Buy Out: In this type of deal, an asset like machinery or land is sold to one party (purchaser) for a definite period of time mentioned in the agreement. If purchaser wants to buy it out after that period, he/she can do so without any restric tions from seller or third parties.
  • Asset Purchase and Acquisition Agreement: This agreement is basically used for transferring all the assets of a target company to a specific buyer. As per the agreement, seller will transfer all its assets (furniture, machinery etc.) to buyer for a certain period of time.
  • Asset Sale Agreement: This is basically used to sell a certain asset according to specific terms reached at the time of sale (for example on execution). The seller will transfer something to buyer like fixed assets, patents, trademarks etc. in exchange for an agreed price.
  • Asset Purchase Agreement with Stock Option and Right to Buy Out: These are basically used for acquiring shares and some other rights like stock option and voting power in a target company. In this transaction, seller has to transfer those shares along with other intellectual property rights such as patents, trademarks etc. for a certain period of time. If purchaser wants to buy it out after that period, he/she can do so without any restrictions from seller or third parties.
  • Asset Transfer Agreement with Right to Buy Out: These are basically agreements used for transferring assets including tangible or intangible property to one party (purchaser) from another (seller). The buyer will get full possession and freedom to use these properties within a period of time mentioned in this agreement. These properties may be any fixed and non-fixed assets like machinery, patent, land, real estate etc.
  • Asset Purchase Agreement with Right to Buy Out: This is basically a kind of business transaction where a buyer acquires all the shares of a target company as well as its assets. As a result, the buyer becomes the sole owner of both target’s tangible and intangible property.
  • Asset Sale Agreement with Right to Buy Out: In this deal, the seller (who is an individual) agrees to sell something like land or equipment to a specific buyer. This agreement is valid for a certain period of time mentioned in it. If purchaser wants to buy it out after that period, he/she can do so without any restrictions from the seller or third parties.
  • Business Asset Sale and Purchase Agreement: This type of contract is used for selling or purchasing business assets which include all kinds of tangible and intangible properties. Besides that, this agreement also stipulates terms and conditions regarding indemnification of sellers against liabilities, compensation against loss or damage etc.
  • Business Asset Purchase Agreement: This is basically a business transaction in which the seller will transfer ownership of certain business assets to a specific buyer. In that manner, seller will transfer all the assets of his/her own business to the buyer.
  • Business Asset Sale and Purchase Agreement: This agreement is used for buying or selling all kinds of property belonging to an individual (seller) such as patents (identical with intellectual property rights), goodwill and other intangible properties etc. It also stipulates terms and conditions regarding indemnification of sellers against liabilities, compensation against loss or damage etc.
  • Buyout Agreement: This type of agreement is used for transferring all the assets owned by one party (buyer) to another (seller). In that manner, seller transfers the current ownership of all its assets to buyer.
  • Business Asset Purchase Agreement with Stock Option: These agreements are basically used for acquiring shares and some other rights like stock option and voting power in a target company. In this transaction, there is an option to buy out the shares without any restrictions from sellers or third parties after a specific period of time mentioned in this agreement.
