Thomas A. Humphreys
This three-day program will focus on the tax issues presented by the entire spectrum of modern major corporate transactions, from relatively simple single-buyer acquisitions of a division or subsidiary to multi-party joint ventures, cross-border mergers, and complex acquisitions of public companies with domestic and foreign operations, including spin-offs and other dispositions of unwanted operations. Evolving techniques for structuring, financing, and refinancing corporate turnovers and other activities will be emphasized, with particular attention being paid to consolidated return issues, to financially troubled businesses, to the role of new financial products and the effects of the evolving economic substance and business purpose doctrine, and to selected current issues in mergers and acquisitions, including the effects of recent legislation on executive compensation.
Morrison & Foerster Partner Thomas A. Humphreys will serve as a panelist on the session “Interesting Transactions of the Past Year” on Day Two of the conference. The session will provide a review and critique of recent novel M&A transactions.
