Taken from the briefing M&A Hot Topic:  Avoiding Pitfalls in Working Capital Adjustments and Earnout Provisions recorded October, 2016 in New York.

M&A activity continues to be robust with many mega deals expected through the end of 2016 and into 2017. With the volume and size of transaction activity increasing, it is imperative for buyers and sellers to approach the negotiating table understanding the potential for disputes after the deal closes as it relates to purchase adjustments for working capital and earnouts. By understanding the areas which typically give rise to disagreements, the parties can address commonly disputed issues at the deal table in order to reduce the risk of a dispute later.

Attorneys who counsel companies (both inside and outside counsel), corporate board members, investment bankers, and advisors to other M&A participants will benefit from this program.
