3 lessons from Humco’s merger with global company

The Texarkana pharmaceutical business Humco recently announced a merger with the global drug company Fagron Group. The deal, as reported by the Texarkana Gazette, is worth an estimated $70 million and is said to result in Fagron investing in the existing Humco group, with Humco continuing operations in Texarkana.

Business transactions may include various licensing agreements

Businesses in Texas and elsewhere may take advantage of a wide variety of licensing arrangements that may benefit both parties to the transaction. Licenses may consist of business transactions permitting the use of patents, trademarks or other technology from one firm to another. A recent transaction between a university in another state and an innovation technology firm is an example of such a licensing arrangement.

Asset management firms engage in complex business transactions

Financial management and investment companies in Texas and elsewhere engage in mergers and acquisitions just like other corporate entities. For example, Voya Financial, Inc., a publicly-traded investment management firm, recently announced that it will divest itself of its annuity business and sell that segment to an investment consortium led by Apollo Global Management, LLC and Reverence Capital Partners. The divestiture will allow Voya to concentrate on its retirement, investment management and employee benefits businesses. These kinds of business transactions take place regularly, both nationally and internationally.

Business transactions may include building and selling a business

Building up and selling an online business is a popular business project in Texas and throughout the country. The business will sell more successfully if certain typical standards are followed while building it. Business transactions involving the sale of the business will be more economically fruitful if the business owners have the goal of making a big exit right from the start.

New entrepreneurship grows new kinds of business transactions

One constant factor of conducting a business enterprise in Texas and elsewhere is that change will sustain a company's future successes. Change is no longer a luxury that a large company may or may not decide to foster. Change in the dynamics of business transactions and business operations is a necessity for survival in a world of nearly constant technological innovations.

Business transactions include mergers and acquisitions

In Texas and elsewhere, a business merger can embody a variety of different types of transactions. The merger may be attempting to merge two companies on a relatively equal basis due to their similar capital value. Business transactions can also involve the incorporation of a smaller business in the larger one as a subsidiary, in which case it may be referred to as an acquisition or a merger.

Business transactions include the sale of subsidiary companies

Most prominent industries in Texas, including the supermarket industry, must at times adapt to changing technologies and market trends to stay relevant and keep up with a changing landscape. Recently, one supermarket giant, Kroger, announced that it is considering selling off its convenience store businesses. That part of the company is worth $1.4 billion, with stores in 18 states. Business transactions like this one may allow a company to focus on its core operations.
