Planning And Executing Transformational M&A: Overview And Risk Management [On demand]

Dbriefs Webcast

10 March 2022 (moved from 7 Mar)

Host: Mike Thorne

Presenters: Simon Hill, Anthony Stobart, Shahzad Alam

Companies are having to adapt to current macro-economic and societal changes, resulting in increased M&A activity as businesses reassess their strategies. M&A is used to accelerate adoption of technologies and develop new business models to enhance growth opportunities. Companies are also seeking to improve profitability by unlocking synergies and divesting business which no longer align to their objectives. M&A moves at pace, is high profile and
inevitably introduces risks where tax can create or destroy value. What does
your organisation need to think about from a tax risk point of view in the
lead-up to signing any transaction? We’ll discuss:

  • Pricing transactions.
  • Price adjustments and completion.
  • Warranties and indemnities.
  • Escrow accounts.
  • Resolution of uncertain tax positions.
  • Tax insurance.

This is the first of a series of webcasts introducing the critical phases to a typical transactions lifecycle. Best practice would be to anticipate and plan ahead for each of these phases.
