CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) May 26, 2016
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 do 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 is 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.
Episode #5 of the PRIVATE COMPANY M&A 2016 series is "Negotiating an M&A Deal" airing on June 1, 2016 at 11am CST (Register Here). Moderator Peter Feinberg of Hoge Fenton will be joined by Brandon Smith of Tenneco, Tim Lee of Mercer Capital and Erin Hollis of Marshall & Stevens.
Negotiating over the terms of a buy/sell (i.e. an M&A) deal requires both knowledge of the law and of the “market.” This webinar involve the panelists engaging in mini negotiations over a variety of deal terms that commonly are negotiated heavily.
