Course Materials - Deloitte Consulting

Integration problems are probably the #1 cause of a deal not working out - yet it's often the least understood part of the diligence, negotiation and post-closing process. This challenge can intensify if a deal is billed as a “merger of equals.” In this program, you will learn how to overcome the post-closing challenges of integration as well as factors you should consider when negotiating a deal to ease the transition afterwards.

Join these experts:

  • Wally Bardenwerper, Vice President, General Counsel & Secretary, Towers Watson
  • Chris Cain, Partner, Foley & Lardner LLP
  • Stephen Glover, Partner, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP
  • Jessica Kosmowski, Principal, Mergers, Acquisitions & Divestitures, Deloitte Consulting LLP

This program will cover:

  • What factors should be considered when negotiating a merger of equals
  • What are the most recent shareholder concerns over integration issues
  • What type of information technology challenges must be overcome after a deal
