how i can know good reverse merger ? by durshegy Q: I mean here , if a company join a revrese merger with another company , which is listed at stock market , how i know that this reverse merger will be good the first company , which make it;s shares increase in value ??

A: Unfortunately you (and the rest of the shareholders, and the company itself) won't know until time has passed. While mergers usually in the end benefit shareholders, whether or not they do will depend on a number of factors including how well the new entity performs, how well the combined entities work together, and how well management is able to successfully utilize the strengths of and manage the combined entity.

I want to take my small company public via reverse merger on the OTC. Is that a good idea or bad idea? by eigomanga Q:

A: Unless you are crazy or your business is extremely capital intensive and generating significant net income you do not want to go public. I know it sounds nice, but you should exhaust ALL other sources of capital first. In addition, if you are not very profitable now you almost certainly wont be after you comply with all the regulations placed on public companies. Do you really want to give up control?

about the close of a reverse merger deal? by Qiao S Q: when we considering a reverse merger deal in a company going to be public transaction, what's the time point for we to determine the deal is closed? because if the share exchange transaction between the shell company and the pre-public company is a one time deal, we can say the time for closing the reverse merger is at the same time that the share exchange is finished. however, and my question is that, if the share exchange is not a one time deal; it's a step by step share exchange transactions, for example: for the first time, 40%, then 20%, 10%, 5%, and 5%, how can we determine the time for closing the reverse merger? is it when the shell company controls over 50% of the shares of the pre-public company? or when the shell company controls 100% of that company? thanks!

A: The reverse merger is considered completed when the pre-public company owns controlling interest in the public shell, so once you own more than 50% of the shares, the merger has been closed. Doing this in steps, rather than buying 100% of the company, is risky. The risk is that the shell could decide not to sell all the shares and retain a minority stake in your business. Since your company is the on-going concern, the shell company would get something for nothing...at your expense.

can the be a reverse merger? by V-8 BLAST Q: I know a shell company is required but can any small cap public company be bought and turning into a reverse merger example a public company worth 2 million and has no instution ownership

A: Yes. Really a reverse takeover as a merger implies tow companies on equal footing. Basically a reverse takeover is a smaller quoted company being taken over by a larger private company. In order to get the quote and the shareholder list. Your questionis not that clear but I hope I have answered it. If not see Q&A http://www.shareworld.co.uk

If a pink sheet company does a reverse merger to the OTC, what are the disadvantages to current share holders? by temp Q: Are there any warning signs to indicate that the current share holders will be cheated? I am asking about a pink sheets company that wants to get to theOTC via a reverse merger. I think the advantage to the pinksheet company would be they would get a clean bill of health since the shell has one. What I am worried about is what should I look out for? Can they slide in alot more shares to the officers? What are the dangers I do not know about? Any examples would help, both positive and negative. Do they need to file a 15c211? I search the internet and know what online documentation says. I am looking mainly for some expertise gained via actual reverse mergers. Regards, King_George_VA

A: Um...ok, I'm pretty knowledgeable about this stuff, but I don't know what a 'reverse merger' is in this context. Normally this term is used when a private company merges with a public one. But a pink sheet company isn't private, so I assume you mean that they will get the OTC listing from the dormant public shell company. Which company's shareholders are you concerned about? Because, in any merger, there are two companies involved. In itself, there's nothing patently wrong with it, and getting the listing would normally be a good sign, if it's the right kind of listing. But are we talking NASDAQ listing or just OTC? I mean, OTC could still be Pink Sheets, right? So it may not be beneficial. I guess you really need to clarify some of this before I try to make sense out of it. Which company do you own shares in? What type of OTC listing are they getting? etc.

Reverse merger into public company? by Nicholas C Q: Hello, My question is about reverse mergers, or private companies merging into a public company. I was wondering if the public company must be SEC registered shell corporation. I would like to know if a company with liabilities can be RM into? Thank you.

A: In order to go public through a reverse merger, the public company must already be registered. The private company could buy the shares of a public shell that has liabilities, but if they do, they take on those liabilities. For most reverse mergers, the on-going private company buys a shell that has already had any liabilities discharged in bankruptcy.

If you know something about a stock (planned reverse merger) before you invest is this considered insider trdi? by Craig Mcdonald Q: If one wants to invest into a stock and have been told that there is going to be a reverse split very soon, is the person that is giving this information guilty of insider trading?

A: If the information has not been released to the public it would be considered insider info. If I was interested in a company having a reverse split I would short the stock. Statistically, most stocks that reverse split go down in price after the reverse split. Generally stocks that reverse split are under $5..... usually after going down by a large percentage. So these stocks... continue to go down after the split. Rarely is a reverse split considered good.

What are the differences between IPO and reverse merger to existing shell? by Programmer Q: Does the company and it's officers and directors have to go under close scrutiny in any case? Does the company have to disclose their names? Does the company has to have full transparency and disclose all of it's books and financial records?

A: The reverse merger into an existing shell is much faster, as your existing business essentially acquired a non-active company that has already completed all the SEC documents. Of course, you do pay a substantial premium to do the reverse merger into the shell. A company I founded looked into this option, and we found that the typical shell would have cost us something like $350,000, and in addition, the people who founded the shell would keep roughly 7-10% of the stock in the newly-merged business. Once you have acquired the shell, through a reverse merger, the business is still required to have full transparency, full disclosure of its books and financial records, etc., as it is you now are operating under SEC rules. The major benefit is that the shell process is much faster, and there is less paperwork to do up front (someone else already did that for you.) Note that when you do a reverse merger into the shell, you are SEC listed, but you haven't raised money through the IPO yet. You still have to do that, and that involves a lot of paperwork. For what it's worth, my company chose to go the IPO route.

Information about reverse merger companies? by Kiep Lang Thang Q: Recently, there are bad publications about young, small Chinese companies that are listed in US stock exchanges thru reverse mergers. Where can I find out information or listing of these companies ?

A: You can do a search in the SEC Edgar database, in the full text search, searching for China, http://searchwww.sec.gov/EDGARFSClient/jsp/EDGAR_MainAccess.jsp . I do not know of any other database that would give you a list of all Chinese reverse mergers. Even this list would not include stocks in the Pink Sheets. In 2008, about one-third of all 192 reverse mergers involved a Chinese-based company. This is remarkable for several reasons. There are many difficulties in completing Chinese reverse mergers, including (1) complex Chinese government regulation of foreign investment, (2) the language barrier, (3) the Chinese love for secrecy in business dealing, (4) the difficulties in getting audited financial statements or even any financial statements in U.S. formats, (5) investor suspicion of foreign entities. However, the boom in Chinese deals has been fueled by investors who realize the growth potential of the huge and booming Chinese economy. In the last year I worked on over 10 small Chinese reverse mergers. When investing in Chinese reverse merger companies, you must be aware that not everything might be as it is presented. Further, the general consensus is that you cannot sue a Chinese company in China. On more than one occasion I know, the Chinese company, after a successful reverse merger and financing just simply backed out of the deal. So the bottom line for our purposes is that there can be a large amount of excitement and a greater amount of risk for Chinese deals.
