Differences between financial investors and strategic investors
This session will explore differences or indeed similarities between strategic and financial investors when pursuing and executing an M&A transaction. After a brief overview of preferred industries/sectors for strategic versus financial and of other criteria for gauging initial interest in a transaction, the speakers will guide the audience through a typical transaction timeline, discussing strategic and/or financial imperatives as the transaction progresses. Topics will include initial approaches, due diligence, exclusivity, level of R&W protection, management incentives, target integration/management, and preparing for an exit.
