Tuesday, July 21, 2015

(this webcast was postponed from June 11th)

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

With M&A deal volume returning to near pre-financial crisis levels, the legal and commercial parameters of what you can - and canít do (or should and shouldn't do) - when shopping and agreeing to sell control of a public company are evolving due to judicial decisions, legislative developments and market conditions. Please join our panel of experts:

  • Cliff Neimeth, Shareholder, Greenberg Traurig, LLP
  • Ray DiCamillo, Director, Richards Layton & Finger PA
  • Mark Gentile, Director, Richards Layton & Finger PA

Among the topics that will be discussed, are:

  • The advice leading practitioners are giving directors and management, generally, in view of recent judicial and legislative developments and market conditions
  • The pre-sign market check vis a vis single buyer strategies and post-sign passive market checks and go-shops
  • Confidentiality & Standstill agreements and their interplay with definitive merger agreements
  • Balancing buyer deal protections and seller fiduciary protections
  • Appraisal rights, stockholder activists, deal jumpers and other deal threats
  • Managing conflicts (insiders and financial advisors)
  • Mitigating injunction and other litigation risks
