It’s Business…but It’s Personal WWW.MISHCON.COM Our Approach ANDREW.RIMMINGTON@MISHCON.COM © MISHCON DE REYA 2013 Andrew Rimmington Partner - Corporate
“…You must never try to make all the money that’s in a deal. …Let the other fellow make some money too, because if you have a reputation for always making all the money, you won’t have many deals…” Getty, J. Paul. WWW.MISHCON.COM Making Deals Work… ANDREW.RIMMINGTON@MISHCON.COM © MISHCON DE REYA 2013
WWW.MISHCON.COM Creating Value ANDREW.RIMMINGTON@MISHCON.COM © MISHCON DE REYA 2013 Theory of Consistency and Credibility You live up to what you write down… Letter of Intent / Heads of Terms 99% Perspiration…1% Inspiration Preparation is key Retaining key rainmakers When the ink is dry, the hard work starts The 100-day plan – integration and managing expectations

WWW.MISHCON.COM Ownership Structure ANDREW.RIMMINGTON@MISHCON.COM © MISHCON DE REYA 2013 Limited Company or LLP? Staff turnover and in particular the loss of staff relationships with clients and candidates is a key issue for all staffing businesses. Traditionally efforts have been made to retain staff through commission and other bonus schemes and sometimes through the use of option structures or other share schemes. The introduction of limited liability partnerships (LLPs) gives companies the chance to address some of these issues, in particular because of the different tax treatment of LLPs.
WWW.MISHCON.COM LLPs – Key Benefits ANDREW.RIMMINGTON@MISHCON.COM © MISHCON DE REYA 2013 Key Benefits: Members of LLPs treated as self-employed is that no employer's national insurance is payable on their remuneration. This creates a saving of 13.8% of their salary and bonus which can be used to increase their pay to more competitive levels, to increase overall "post-pay" profitability or a combination of the two. The impact of this significant saving on profits and the motivation of staff can be significant. Changes proposed by Government – recommend caution until position clarified
WWW.MISHCON.COM Shares for Rights Proposals ANDREW.RIMMINGTON@MISHCON.COM © MISHCON DE REYA 2013 Key Issues: Under the proposals a new owner-employee contract could be offered by employers to staff, giving them shares worth between £2,000 and £50,000. In return they would lose rights including unfair dismissal, redundancy, training rights and the right to flexible working. Any capital gains on the shares will be exempt from capital gains tax when sold. Companies will have to arrange for employees to be given free independent legal advice.
WWW.MISHCON.COM Shares for Rights Proposals ANDREW.RIMMINGTON@MISHCON.COM © MISHCON DE REYA 2013 Key Issues: Valuation of shares Compulsory transfer of shares – when an employee leaves Cost of implementing and managing a Shares for Rights Scheme
WWW.MISHCON.COM Protecting Value ANDREW.RIMMINGTON@MISHCON.COM © MISHCON DE REYA 2013 Compulsory Transfer of Shares on Exit Pre-emption Rights on any Sale of Shares Planned Exit (Tag Along/Drag Along)? Earn Outs – Good News or Bad? Restrictive Covenants and Data Theft
