Articles are offered on the APN website for educational purposes only and any attempt to
manipulate these articles will be considered a violation of copyright. Articles were believed
accurate as of the publication date, and APN does not accept responsibility for material that
has since become obsolete or inaccurate.
Hyperlink Policy – APN does not endorse websites that link to any of APN’s websites. APN
will not be held liable for the content of any site to or from which its sites are hyperlinked. APN
encourages anyone interested in the M&A transaction process to link to APN’s Home Page but
discourages sites that are concerned only with Recruitment, as this does not coincide with APN’s
mission. APN provides members with APN logos they may opt to use for the purpose of linking
from their websites; please visit the members-only section of the site for more details. Special
exemptions to this policy can only be granted by APN.
