Part Three

The coronavirus pandemic continues to present a host of challenges for employers, and certain issues have greatly and uniquely impacted owner-managed and closely-held businesses. Companies have found themselves in uncharted territory relating to financing and capitalization issues, daily business operational and corporate governance matters and the impact of the COVID-climate on acquisitions and divestitures.

This webinar is the third in the series of three and will explore Mergers and Acquisition considerations in acquiring or selling a business during this time. The topics include:

  • What are we seeing in the Marketplace?
  • Valuation and Price Adjustment - Alternative Valuation, Market Adjustment
  • Due Diligence Considerations
  • Earn-Outs
  • Seller Notes and Escrows
  • Material Adverse Effect Clauses
  • Employee Benefits - Combination of Workforce of Acquired Companies
  • ESOP considerations
