The webinar explains how integration planning turns to execution as people, process, and technology are combined once the deal is legally closed.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) May 11, 2018
Corporate transactions (or “deals”) include many types of transactions. Viewed broadly, a deal can be a very small matter such as drafting a purchase order, a non-compete agreement, or myriad other single purpose agreements necessary to document a legal relationship between two parties and extend to large multi-national acquisitions and financings. One of the most significant types of transactions a company can enter into, however, and the type that is commonly thought of as needing a “deal” lawyer, is a Mergers and Acquisitions transaction. M&A (mergers and acquisitions), viewed broadly, includes buying or selling all or part of a business, as well as other business combinations, such as mergers. Such “deal” work commonly requires attorneys, accountants, intermediaries (i.e. investment bankers and business brokers) to work together.
The Financial Poise PRIVATE COMPANY M&A BOOT CAMP 2018 webinar series features leading M&A attorneys and other deal professionals speaking about private company M&A in roughly chronological order, guiding the audience through a conversation that spans from deal origination, the LOI (letter-of-intent) or term sheet, due diligence, document drafting and negotiation, closing, and post-closing. Issues addressed include tax planning; corporate governance; closing conditions; representations and warranties; indemnification provisions; earn-outs; restrictive covenants; antitrust; intellectual property; and employment. While many of the topics covered apply also to public company M&A, the focus of this webinar series is on M&A involving a privately owned company.
The fifth episode of the PRIVATE COMPANY M&A BOOT CAMP 2018 webinar series is Post-Closing Issues- Integration & Potential Buyer/Seller Disputes, airing on May 17th at 10AM CST (REGISTER HERE), and features Host Peter Feinberg of The Law Office of Peter Feinberg. Mr. Feinberg is joined by Phil Buffington of Adams and Reese LLP, Robert Londin of Jaspan Schlesinger LLP, and Mark Trembacki of Risk Management Levers, Inc. to discuss what happens after a deal is closed.
The deal is complete, and the parties have finished the hard work. Or have they? Integration planning turns to execution as people, process, and technology are combined once the deal is legally closed. The buyer will need to consider the purchased business or assets from the standpoint of employees, IT, customers, suppliers, and a multitude of other areas. In addition, numerous post-closing legal issues may arise, including purchase price adjustments, breaches of representations and warranties, enforcement of key negative employment-related covenants and restrictive covenants, collection of pre-closing accounts receivable, and true-ups of final financials. This episode guides listeners through the process, timing, and issues which most commonly arise after the closing of deals.
