M&A: The “Helicopter” Seminar

20. March @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

M&A is a multi-faceted and interdisciplinary phenomenon: Strategic, Financial, Legal, Accounting, Tax, Management & HR questions arise and a diversity of decision-makers and experts must be brought together. In this “Helicopter” Seminar, you will get an overview of the “big points” of the whole M&A array. We will cover all mentioned disciplines and we will walk through all relevant stages by way of a step plan: from Target search over CEO’s handshake to the full implementation of the corporation’s new structure. You will learn about the complex mechanics of an M&A Deal, but you will also familiarize with a multitude of technical features (e.g. diverse Due Diligences) which have to be executed with a clockwork’s precision. For a full “big picture”, we will ultimately introduce you to the key players in the M&A market and explain the major duties of Executives in an M&A process.
