Uncertainty can result in a deal being delayed, altered or cancelled. Gowling WLG's M&A team is hosting a series of webinars designed to explore, analyze and help clients and friends of our firm navigate the impacts uncertainty can have on transactions.

COVID-19 has devastated the global economy, caused many companies to freeze or significantly curtail operations, and impacted many M&A transactions. However, if you are a Canadian small or medium enterprise (SME) contemplating a sale of your business in the near future, this is the perfect time to prepare your company for a successful sale. Our panel of M&A practitioners will provide practical tips on how best to use a slowdown in operations to prepare your business for a future M&A transaction.

Topics in this session will include:

  • Preparing for Legal Due Diligence and Disclosure Schedules, including reviewing minute books, employee and contractor documentation, material contracts, intellectual property, and more
  • Organization of Due Diligence Materials
  • Tax-Efficient Structuring of the Transaction
