ESBC presents: "The Deal is Done. Now What?" A Sequel to “Exit Strategy”
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

One man's investment is another man's exit. Corporate investments are made for any number of reasons. An undervalued target. A platform to enter a market. An investment in potential. Buying a team or technology. More capacity. In all cases, a central plank in the decision is financial data that is historic and projections that are assumptions. Meanwhile, the momentum of the deal may have irresistibly pulled you forward in spite of any number of legal issues that arose in due diligence.

08:30AM -10:00AM

About the Event:

One man's investment is another man's exit. Corporate investments are made for any number of reasons. An undervalued target. A platform to enter a market. An investment in potential. Buying a team or technology. More capacity.

In all cases, a central plank in the decision is financial data that is historic and projections that are assumptions. Meanwhile, the momentum of the deal may have irresistibly pulled you forward in spite of any number of legal issues that arose in due diligence. This headache is now yours. So now what?


The Discussion Panel will focus on these issues:

  • The magic of rigorous financial budgeting and forecasting
  • The place for backtesting and linking it to strategy implementation
  • Making sense of the due diligence report and completion hand-off
  • Warranty claims and price adjustments
  • Integrating the team, policies, governance and corporate culture
The speakers' presentations will be followed by an interactive Q and A session chaired by Padraig Walsh.

Welcome and Opening Remarks:

Adrian Bradbury, Managing Director & Head of M&A and Private Equity, Quam Capital Limited.
