CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) February 15, 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.
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. These M&A 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 easily understandable for business owners who have not previously been through this process.
Episode #2 of the series is Key Provisions in M&A Agreements (Register Here). Moderator Peter Feinberg of Hoge Fenton is joined by panelists Aarthi Belani of Jones Day, David Lorry of Versa Capital Management, Robert Londin of Jaspan Schlesinger and Nick Heinz of Mercer Capital.
Although every deal is different, understanding any purchase/sale agreement will help you understand other purchase sale agreements. Stated another way, most M&A documents include a similar set of sections and use a similar vocabulary. This webinar explains what provisions are commonly included in M&A documents and discusses how buyers and sellers approach these provisions differently. It also highlights how M&A agreements differ depending on whether the assets being bought and sold is equity of a company or the assets of a company.
