Why you should attend

M&A activity continues to rebound nicely in 2011 on all fronts. Private equity transactions, tender offers and hostile bids are all on the increase. Among the unsolicited offers, some (Sanofi/Genzyme) ended well for bidders and others (Air Products/Airgas) not so well. Relatively reliable equity and debt markets have contributed to stabilizing the M&A landscape, and acquisition financing terms have continued their seemingly inexorable march back to pre-crisis standard. Activist shareholders are once again asserting influence, but at the same time several high profile votes went against the recommendations of the proxy advisory firms. Perhaps the most unsettling influence on the M&A field is the Delaware judiciary, which continues to produce dramatic and, at times, surprising opinions at a pace that stuns even the most seasoned practitioners. Join our expert faculty of lawyers, general counsels, regulators and investment bankers as we explore the fascinating state of M&A and the trends you need to be aware of for the year ahead.
