18.2 Global Transaction Gotchas

Corporate transactions, especially ones with cross-border implications, can be extremely stressful and harrowing for everyone involved. This panel will teach you how to keep calm while you merge, spin, divest, and purchase. Drawing from a wealth of experience, these panelists will discuss best practices for each stage of a corporate transaction, from due diligence, to merger agreement negotiation, to post-acquisition integration. They will review examples of how equity awards are treated in different transactions, the pros and cons of different approaches, and which countries to look out for when it comes to tax and regulatory issues related to such awards. Attend this session so you can be better prepared for your next global transaction!
