Corporate Divestitures: Opportunities for Investors, Private Companies and Corporate Employees


Morrison & Foerster
755 Page Mill Road
Palo Alto, CA


With pressure on public companies to enhance profitability and focus on core business lines, many are looking to divestitures and spinouts as a way to streamlines businesses and enhance shareholder value. Morrison & Foerster, in partnership with VC Task Force, proudly presents a panel discussion that will spell out such opportunities for investors, private companies and corporate employees.

The technology sector in particular has seen significant efforts over the past several years to exit non-core operations. Many of the businesses being exited are those very companies acquired at the height of the bubble in 2000, when $722B was spent on technology companies in the US. These opportunities may represent an overlooked potential gold mine for investors, private companies and corporate employees.
