Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the January 27th premiere of a new webinar series “PRIVATE COMPANY M&A BOOT CAMP 2016," designed to introduce attorneys and business owners to the basics of an M&A transaction. Host Peter Feinberg of Hoge Fenton joins panelists from firms including Jones Day, Riggs Davie, Houlihan Lokey, Versa Capital Management, and Prasad IP to discuss the fundamentals of the M&A process.

Corporate transactions (or “deals”) include many types of transactions. One of the most significant type of transactions a company can enter into is a deal to buy another company or to sell itself. This type of deal, an M&A (merger and acquisition) deal, typically requires more work from accountants and attorneys than many other deals. This webinar series features leading M&A attorneys and other “deal” professionals speaking at a fairly basic level about transaction structures; tax planning issues; shareholder and board of directors approval; representations and warranties and indemnifications; earn-out provisions; antitrust issues; intellectual property issues; employment issues; financing issues; confidentiality agreements; letters of intent and term sheets; due diligence and preparation of disclosure schedules; closing; and post-closing tasks. All of these issues are discussed in plain English, and while the series is valuable for seasoned professionals in many fields (law, accounting, investment banking, etc.) who practice in this area, it will also be easily understandable for business owners who have not previously been through this process.

As with all Financial Poise™ webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, and listeners will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the programs.

Join some of the leading experts in this unique and growing field as they discuss- in plain English for the non-expert- the basics and the fundamentals of Mergers & Acquistion transactions. Financial Poise™ webinar series are designed to allow listeners to participate in all, or just one, of a series of topics. Webinars through WestEdlegalcenter offer CLE and CPE credits.

The first episode of the series, STRUCTURING AND PLANNING THE M&A TRANSACTION, (Register Here) airs on January 27th at 11am CST and features host Peter Feinberg of Hoge Fenton and panelists Alexander Davie of Riggs Davie PLC, David Lorry of Versa Capital Management and Sanjay Prasad of Prasad IP.

Much like an excellent chess player anticipates strategy many moves in advance, it is critical for the buyer and seller in a M&A transaction to envision and plan the route to get a deal done, including anticipated detours, at the onset of the transaction. This webinar discusses the similarities and differences between basic M&A transaction structures, tax planning issues; board and shareholder approval; representations and warranties; and indemnification. Also discussed will be earn-out provisions; antitrust issues; intellectual property issues; employment issues; and financing issues. This program will, in summary form, cover many of the issues discussed in greater depth in subsequent episodes.
