Negotiation of M&A contracts in Covid-19 times: Lessons learned

Dbriefs Legal | Webinar | 25 May 2021 | 12:00 CET

Host: David Roelens
Presenters: Giuseppe Francesco Mirarchi, Dr. Michael von Rueden, and Hans Vansweevelt

The Covid-19 pandemic has sent a shockwave around the world and brought much of life to a grinding halt. It does not seem to have done the same for M&A, as transaction numbers remain steady and the market even seems to thrive. But if the volume of transactions has not changed, then what has? Our webcast will present viewpoints on this matter from across Europe and will dive deeper into the actual effects of Covid-19 on the M&A practice. Did what we expected at the beginning of the pandemic actually materialise? We'll discuss:

  • M&A and Covid-19: it goes on (current market overview).
  • Negotiation long distance – impact on timing and outcome of transactions?
  • A shift towards a buyer's market: expectations challenged.
    • Deal certainty.
    • Due diligence.
    • Price: determination and payment.
    • Risk allocation mechanisms.
    • Specific contractual (Term sheet/SPA) clauses.
  • Virtual signings and closings across Europe, where are we?

Gain an insight on the current M&A trends and Covid-19 impact from our M&A specialists on the Dbriefs Legal webcast panel.
