    What are their financial goals? Strategies? Plans? If companies are public, how will investors view the deal? What is the company worth? Are their assets cash or stock? Is the stock a strong currency? What will be the credit rating of the new company? What expenses and debts do they have? What will be the make-up of the new management team? Who will come from what companies? Who will contribute to the Board? What sort of clauses would allow either entity to walk away from the deal after signing? These are a few important ones.
