M&A Roundtable: Anatomy of the Deal

Hosted By: Association of Corporate Counsel

M&A is a core strategic option for companies to grow. With corporate balance sheets and confidence generally being strong, the volume of deals continues to be robust. In this roundtable discussion, we will review the fundamental process and important options that counsel should manage to optimize the outcome, including:

  • Considerations when structuring the transaction
  • Understanding when and how leverage changes as the deal evolves
  • Uncovering risks in due diligence
  • Understanding key deal terms, including recent trends and what's "market"
