Public M&A Year in Review: Trends and Highlights from 2014

Recorded: Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Duration: 60 minutes

An integral part of negotiating a public M&A deal is staying on top of market practice and developments. Practical Law's What's Market database tracks and summarizes publicly filed merger agreements so you can keep informed of market trends and new approaches to complex deal terms.

Join Practical Law for a free 60-minute webinar in which Daniel Rubin, Senior Editor, Practical Law Corporate and M&A, will analyze What's Market data and review critical M&A trends, unique transactions and highlights from 2014 that will affect your practice in 2015.

During the webinar, the presenter will discuss:

  • The surge in large-cap acquisitions and stock deals among strategic buyers in 2014.
  • The influence of shareholder activism on the M&A market.
  • Trends in M&A from 2014 that we expect to continue in 2015 and trends that we expect will not continue.
  • And more.

Also, be sure to check out What's Market, which provides a continuously updated database of agreements covering a range of corporate, securities, finance and commercial topics, including public merger agreements. In the public merger agreements database, you can analyze and compare negotiated terms, such as fiduciary outs, matching rights, termination fees and pricing collars, across multiple deals. What's Market also contains links to the underlying public documents.

A short Q&A session will follow.

CLE credit available for participants in live webcast only.
