 Boards' Involvement in Mergers and Acquisitions 


Many large corporations have been in the news recently as they have reshaped their businesses through mergers, acquisitions, dispositions, and spin-offs.


  • What should the director’s role be in connection with this corporate strategy?
  • How should directors monitor whether the projected benefits of an acquisition, disposition, or spin-off strategy have worked?
  • What are the fiduciary obligations with respect to a transaction?
  • How should an activist shareholder who may propose activities like this impact directors' thinking?

The esteemed panel for this program will discuss all of these considerations and provide practical advice based on their experiences to help attendees be better prepare to deal with these situations.
