Projections and other forward-looking information are both common and essential to the M&A process. But when efforts to gaze into the future make their way into acquisition agreements, a seller's innocent optimism may become buyer's basis for fraud and rescission. With a strong dose of reality from the litigator's perspective, this program will look at what could happen when the crystal ball collides with 20/20 hindsight.

Join these experts:

  • Wilson Chu, Partner, K&L Gates LLP
  • Sal Fira, Partner, Grant Thornton LLP
  • Peter Flocos, Partner, K&L Gates LLP

This program will cover:

  • Common forms of crystal ball provisions in acquisition agreements
  • Important cases turning on projections and other forward-looking information
  • How to keep from being beaned by a crystal (hard)ball
