Following the Great Recession of 2007 - 2009 there are a number of distressed and insolvent companies that are available for acquisition. Current market conditions provide a unique opportunity to acquire assets at a price much lower than previously possible.
Presenting results from proprietary research conducted at the M&A Research Centre at Cass Business School this course will provide participants with tools required to analyse which deals are successful and why. A number of case studies including the acquisition of Merrill Lynch by Bank of America and Lehman Brothers' US business by Barclays Bank will be discussed in-depth. Group break-out sessions will also allow participants to identify the critical success factors in making distressed deals work.
The programme is run by Scott Moeller, Director of the M&A Research Centre at Cass Business School, former senior executive at Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley and an author of several acclaimed books on mergers and acquisitions.
By the end of this course you will:
• Learn in which industries there are distressed acquisitions and why
• Understand the differences between distressed and bankrupt/insolvent acquisitions
• Assess timing issues - when is the best to acquire
• Explore special due dilligence issues in distressed acquisitions
• Discuss critical success factors post-acquisition
