Days 1 & 2 provide a comprehensive overview of the M&A industry, the M&A process, corporate objectives in pursuing M&A , financial M&A tactics , success and failure, and the skills engaged in executing transactions. The anatomy of a deal from inception to post-merger integration is covered. Day 3 provides practical, hands-on examination of the key components of M&A transactions. Emphasis is placed on studying practical transaction structures and their financial tax, legal and accounting implications.
