Topic: Cautionary Tales, Red Flags, Broken Deals & More – Lessons from M&A Experts


Join us as a panel of deal veterans share valuable lessons learned from tough deals and failed transactions. Issues addressed will include buyer mistakes, over valuation, poor structuring, cultural mismatches, bad management, seller problems, or even outright fraud. What should you do when you find yourself in these sticky situations?

Our panel will discuss what to look for to avoid bad deals, what can be done differently, what buyers should do when an acquisition is under-performing, or when one has simply failed, and much more. Come learn from a mix of experienced deal makers sharing different perspectives– investment banker, private equity sponsor, lender, and M&A consultant – all with scars obtained in acquisitions. You will leave with plenty of takeaways from this one!
