While we continue to enjoy a relatively stable economy, there still seems to be endless regulatory and fiscal changes and challenges when acquiring or selling a company. In order to successfully navigate an M&A transaction in this evolving economic environment, it is critical that buyers and sellers understand what will be required to be successful in their strategic transaction efforts.

  • How companies are obtaining financing in today's market;
  • How to properly conduct due diligence from a buyer's and seller's perspective;
  • Current landscape of the M&A market (valuations, financing alternatives and deal trends);
  • How to address a variety of confidentiality concerns in an M&A transaction;
  • How making operational, financial and legal decisions can help your company maintain its value and remain an attractive partner through the sale process;
  • How operating efficiency, customer/supplier quality, strategic focus, key management effectiveness and other non-financial metrics affect valuations and deal terms; and
  • How to plan and implement a successful post-acquisition integration strategy.

Anyone on either the buy and sell side who is preparing to engage in a potential merger, sale or acquisition or who wants to have a clear acquisition or disposition strategy in place.
