General Information

Welcome to the Mergers and Acquisitions Committee Website. Our M&A subcommittees, taskforces and working groups all conducted successful meetings and moved forward on projects of interest to members of the group at the Committee’s recent Stand-Alone Meeting in Laguna Beach. For the committee and subcommittee materials relating to that meeting, see the Programs Subcommittee page here

Our next meeting will be April 12-14, 2018, as part of the Business Law Section Spring Meeting at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, FL. Details of all our upcoming meetings are contained under Upcoming Committee Meetings below.

The latest issue of Deal Points (Winter 2018) is here and includes an article by James Black on an important California law case (in the New York Supreme Court) on the meaning of “voting power” and an article by Christopher Kelly, Ryan Murphy and Jay Stirling on valuation methodology arising out of the Dell stock appraisal, as well as the usual short descriptions of and/or excerpts from upcoming publications or other M&A Committee work product and other subcommittee or task force content that should be of interest to Committee members. It also contains the final agenda and dial-in details for the Laguna Beach meetings.

The Deal Points Studies, available only to members of the Committee, are on the Market Trends Subcommittee page here. This includes our recently published 2017 Carveout Transactions Deal Points Study (an inaugural study on divisional sales), 2017 Strategic Buyer/Public Target Deal Points Study, 2017 ABA Canadian Public Target Deal Points Study, 2017 Private Target Deal Points Study and 2017 Buyer Power Ratio Deal Points Study.
