An increase in value through the realization of synergies is one of the most frequently cited rationales for a merger or acquisition. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to not only identify potential opportunities for synergies, but also quantify and value those synergies and develop a plan to achieve them. Expected synergies can also increase the complexity of litigation related to a planned or executed merger or acquisition.
In this webcast, the panelists from FTI Consulting, Inc. and DLA Piper will cover important synergy issues companies face before and after the acquisition. The panel will provide an overview of academic and consulting firm research on M&A value creation and synergies as well as discuss guidelines for valuing synergies prior to an acquisition. The panel will also discuss relevant case law and provide case study examples of how synergies impact litigation both before and subsequent to the execution of a merger or acquisition.
The webcast will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the panel, which consists of Jeff Litvak, CPA/ABV/CFF, ASA, and Brent Miller of FTI Consulting’s Forensic and Litigation Consulting group and Brett Ingerman of DLA Piper.
