"Dissecting the Modern Poison Pill"

Thursday, September 30, 2010

2:00 - 2:45 pm, eastern [archive and transcript to follow]

In the wake of Selectica v. Versata Enterprises, practitioners are re-examining the use of poison pills and how they are constructed. In addition, continued pressure by shareholders has modified pill practice over the years. In this program, you will learn the latest in how pills are being negotiated as well as factors you should consider when devising a pill.

Join these experts:

  • Rick Alexander, Partner, Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell
  • David Katz, Partner, Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz
  • Cliff Neimeth, Partner, Greenberg Traurig LLP

This program will cover:

  • What are considered the acceptable parameters of pills after Selectica, Yucaipa and Craigslist
  • What are the most recent shareholder concerns over pills
  • What type of pill protection should a seller try to negotiate to protect itself but yet not trip court concerns
