The Board’s Role in M&A

Mergers and acquisitions can be a transformative activity for a company, and it is therefore critical that the board understand and execute its role. The board’s role in M&A ties back to its role in overseeing corporate strategy, since a company’s M&A activity should be closely aligned with its strategy. Also, M&A activity by its very nature can involve an increase in the number and the depth of risks faced by the company, and so boards should exercise increased oversight of risk management before, during and following M&A transactions.

During this webinar with Howard Brownstein you will learn:
· How a board should fulfill its fiduciary duties regarding the company’s M&A activities
· The roles that individual board members can play in the board’s oversight of M&A
· How board members can use risk as a conceptual framework for dealing with M&A
