Overview (Program Summary)
Join us for a two-part M&A webinar series on corporate reorganizations in the industrials sector and key legal considerations for target companies selling to a SPAC.
Part 1 — Corporate reorganizations: the industrial M&A perspective
Large global businesses are frequently looking to reorganize group structures for a variety of reasons — to drive treasury efficiencies, expand, integrate or prepare business units for divestment. The Industrials sector is no stranger to this trend and, in this session, we will focus on how to reorganize your group in preparation for the sale of such a business unit, including best practices, pitfalls, key considerations and top tips.
Part 2 — Selling to a SPAC: key legal considerations for target companies
Thursday, May 6
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CDT
Over the past year, special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) have experienced something of a renaissance, making up half of IPOs in 2020 and raising more capital in the first three months of 2021 than they did last year. As the SPAC boom continues, private companies looking to go public may consider selling to a SPAC as an alternative to an IPO. While a SPAC acquisition has its advantages, target companies must be aware of the legal considerations associated with such a transaction. In this webinar, we will discuss:
• Timeline for a SPAC acquisition
• Customary deal terms for a SPAC acquisition
• Preparing a target company to be publicly-traded
• What a target company's shareholders can expect post-acquisition
