M&A activity is at an all-time high with no end in sight. For IR professionals these transactions bring unique communication challenges, including bridging the communication needs of the Board of Directors, senior management and Wall Street, extracting information about the other party in the transaction, effectively conveying the merits of the agreement to shareholders and, often, garnering shareholder approval for the deal. Please join us for an interactive panel discussion offering perspectives on M&A communications, from the viewpoints of acquirers and acquirees. This panel of executives with extensive M&A background will share its experiences and counsel on communicating in an active M&A environment. This formal event will be preceded by Speed Networking.
