In our industry there are plenty of acquisitions that take place but very few mergers. Why is that? In this session we will explore the benefits and risks associated with doing a “true” merger rather than an acquisition (which is often called a merger but is just one company buying out another). We will be speaking from the perspective of having done several acquisitions and wanting to do a merger and from the perspective of someone who has successfully completed a “true” merger in our industry.
Takeaways: Attendees will see the comparison of mergers vs. traditional acquisitions, get answers to questions such as what are the advantages of a merger, and what are the risks connected to a merger?
