Welcome with Conference Chair Shannon Susko & Opening Keynote: Buyside Drilldown – Closing, and Holding Down Acquisitions in Uncertain Times
COVID-19 did more than distort valuations, it shifted buyer/seller priorities within deal terms and normal course due diligence activities. Opportunities exist, of course, and in this session you’ll hear from two CEOs who managed to close strategic tuck-in acquisitions during the pandemic, while navigating and protecting their new-found asset after the deals closed.
- How these deals were progressing before and after the pandemic
- How these acquisitions are impacting perceived valuations for the acquirers
- Stories about post-merger integration and challenges so that you can prioritize buyside strategies and protect the value of your new asset
- About culture navigation in a remote-office world
