Please join Morrison & Foerster and 451 Research for a special Tech M&A Webinar on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 10:00 a.m. PST / 1:00 p.m. EST. The event will feature highlights of our recent M&A Leaders' Survey, exploring views on the use of 'acqui-hires;' employee retention practices; the competitive landscape for acquirers; and an update on the outlook for deal flow and valuations.

The webinar will expand upon the findings of the fourth M&A Leaders' Survey, which polled deal professionals and business leaders on current topics in tech M&A. Brenon Daly, Research Director for 451 Research's M&A practice, will kick off the discussion, followed by Rob Townsend, Partner and Co-Chair of the Global M&A Practice Group at Morrison & Foerster. There will be plenty of time for Q&A.

Among the topics we’ll cover in this information-packed webinar:

  • What trends do we see in tech M&A deal flow so far this year?
  • What is the outlook for deal activity and valuations in coming months?
  • What will it take to return M&A volume to pre-recession levels? M&A thought leaders speak out!
  • Will the emphasis on 'acqui-hires' and related human resource aspects of deals increase or decrease in the coming year?
  • What are the most frequent employee-related issues that arise in deals?
  • What are the most effective employee retention mechanisms?
  • Has competition for deals increased or decreased in recent years?
  • Which classes of acquirers are going to become more - or less - active in the coming 12 months?

About the Survey:

The M&A Leaders' Survey, completed mid-October, polled a broad sampling of deal professionals, including CEOs, CFOs, attorneys, investors and investment bankers. The survey, the fourth in a series, is a joint effort of Morrison & Foerster and 451 Research.
