This webinar is an advanced course regarding mergers and acquisitions ("M&A").  The M&A process is the process under which buyers and sellers complete the purchase and sale of a business.  We will discuss the following M&A methods:
 
1.  Mergers - including direct mergers, forward triangular mergers, reverse triangular mergers, and short form mergers;
 
2.  Asset Sales; and
 
3.  Stock Sales.
 
For each type of M&A method, the seminar will address the advantages, disadvantages, and tax treatment.  We will also discuss the due diligence process for M&A transactions.you know that the terms “merger” and “acquisitions” are not interchangeable? And what is “due diligence” anyway?
