Negotiating the final LOI (letter of intent) and PSA (share purchase and sale agreement) with Big Bore
“When we were having preliminary discussions with Big Bore, we had a general sense of what a fair deal would look like from a money perspective. The guys at Redcap&Truss confirmed our initial thinking, but also brought to the table some creative ideas on the other non-financial deal terms that we were not as familiar with. They did a great job in a short amount of time and negotiated a great deal for all sides .” – Michael Dorsett, shareholder of Big Stone Boring Ltd.
