Date: January 30, 2018

Time: 2:00-2:30 p.m.

Location: Webinar

M&A activity in 2017 developed more cautiously than in the prior record years, but nonetheless proceeded at a steady clip. While analysts generally expect the continuation of a healthy M&A environment, questions crowd the agendas of corporate boards and the counsel who advise them. A host of factors and trends potentially confront strategic and private equity buyers considering transactions in 2018.

This 30-minute webinar, presented by Nixon Peabody’s John Partigan, Sean Clancy and Alexandra López-Casero will review some of the key issues surrounding M&A in 2018. Moreover, it will also summarize the impact of market uncertainty on key M&A deal terms, as revealed by Nixon Peabody LLP’s 2017 Material Adverse Change Survey and 2017 Indemnification Deal Terms Survey.

Discussion will include:

  • Critical impacts of the tax legislation on M&A;
  • The import of President Trump’s Lattice Semiconductor order as well as the proposal of bi-cameral legislation seeking to expand CFIUS review;
  • Key trends relating to representation and warranty general survival periods, fundamental representations and warranties, exclusions from indemnifiable damages, materiality scrapes, indemnity basket and cap sizes, sandbagging clauses and other trends; and
  • Takeaways from the MAC exceptions negotiated in recent deals.
