NYPEN Transaction Risk Mitigation

Invitation Link: https://guest.cvent.com/EVENTS/Register/IdentityConfirmation.aspx?e=f5806ce3-646a-4567-bf5b-e21ef5fa3c88

Have you ever failed to reach agreement with a seller on the amount of an escrow or the cap on indemnities? Have different views on the existence or extent of potential tax liabilities created a “value” gap that was too large to overcome or impacted your bid price?

The New York Private Equity Network (NYPEN) and Marsh, Inc. invite you to a workshop on July 27th to learn about ways that private equity funds are mitigating certain transaction risks through structured products that insure against many typical “hot-button” transaction-related risks. Escrows, indemnity caps and tax liabilities are only a few examples of transaction issues that can be mitigated. In some cases, the ability to overcome such hurdles can be a differentiating factor in a competitive situation, as reduced exposure can occasionally allow buyers to bid more aggressively in light of the lower risk.

Event Details:
*Date: Thursday, July 27th
*Time: 7pm-8:30pm (followed by cocktails)
*Location: Marsh Inc.'s office - 1166 Avenue of the Americas (45th Street between Avenue of the Americas and 5th Avenue)

Concepts to be Covered Include How to:
*Enhance your bid with limited escrow and indemnification requirements
*Reduce hold-backs when selling a business so that more capital can be distributed upon a liquidation event
*Reduce tax exposure in 355 Spin-offs and 338(h)(10) elections
*Minimize risks associated with: Fraudulent Conveyance, Regulatory Compliance, Intellectual Property Exposure, Successor Liabilities, Validity of Net Operating Losses and other exposures
