Buyers and sellers are critically focused on issues of valuation, but often these discussions pre-date involvement of legal counsel, and legal counsel may lack sufficient familiarity with valuation concepts and the financial accounting provisions underlying them to reflect the same accurately in the M&A agreement. This can lead to omitting key information or unduly focusing on information that doesn’t drive valuation. This presentation will discuss how to best ensure a productive dialogue between counsel, valuation specialists and accountants with a goal toward ensuring that the agreement covers what is necessary, without expending scarce negotiating capital on issues that don’t serve as value drivers.

Join Mark Stoneman as he address how key provisions in acquisition agreements are impacted by the foregoing and address key valuation issues that are commonly overlooked. The discussion will address these issues from the perspective of both buyers and sellers.
