Hosted by Practical Law

Recorded on February 13, 2018

Successfully negotiating a public M&A deal for your client requires familiarity with 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.

To learn more about recent innovations in deal-making, join Practical Law for a free 60-minute webinar reviewing the year in M&A. During the webinar, 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 2017 that may affect your practice in 2018.

In this year's annual webinar, the presenter will discuss:

  • Trends in deal size and deal volume in the US and globally, including in small-market and mid-market M&A.
  • The use of cash and stock consideration in public M&A deals in 2017.
  • The continuing influence of shareholder activism on the M&A market.
  • Legal developments and trends from 2017 that will influence deal-making in 2018.
  • 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 and spin-offs. 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.
