Canadian Acquisition Financing
|Area||Banking and Finance Law|
Canadians companies were involved in a number of large acquisition financings in 2013, and the six major Canadian banks remain active in this area. There are a number of similarities between Canada and the U.S. in terms of key legal and business issues in acquisition financings. However, the Canadian approach is not always consistent with the U.S. approach, and there are some important market-driven and legal differences that are worth outlining in detail.
