The current edition of Deal Points was recently e-mailed to all Committee members. In addition to reports from our various task forces and subcommittees, this issue contains a summary by the M&A Jurisprudence Subcommittee of the ruling by the Delaware Court of Chancery in Meso Scale Diagnostics, LLC v. Roche Diagnostics GmbH, which deals with reverse triangular mergers and anti-assignment clauses. Also included in this issue are articles addressing recent amendments to the Delaware General Corporation Law, activists investors, and price adjustments.
We have received very favorable response to our Committee's new resource, the M&A Lawyers' Library, a collection of articles and memos on timely topics in the mergers and acquisitions field. The M&A Lawyers' Library materials have been updated recently to add a number of informative papers. The research materials are available only to members of the Mergers and Acquisitions Committee. You can access the materials in the link in the next section of this page.
The Deal Points Studies, containing analysis of frequently-used contract clauses, are available (to committee members only) through the link found on the M&A Market Trends page. Included in those documents is the recently-published 2011 Strategic Buyer/Public Target M&A Deal Points Study. The M&A Market Trends Subcommittee has made available, through the Committee's extranet site, copies of the source documents that were reviewed in producing the studies. The extranet site, accessible also through the M&A Market Trends page, includes a feature that permits full text searches of the source documents.
