Nordic M&A & PE Forum

Date: 15 March 2018 8:30 am, Location: Radisson Blu Waterfront, Stockholm, Sweden

Philip Whitchelo, Intralinks Vice President Strategy & Product Marketing, will be presenting “Abandoned Acquisitions - Why Do Some Deals Fail?

This presentation, based on a 25-year study of over 78,500 worldwide M&A transactions by the M&A Research Centre at London’s Cass Business School and Intralinks, seeks to answer these questions, providing provocative insights and sometimes counterintuitive conclusions.

  • Why are some deals more likely than others to fail, and what factors are significantly predictive of deal failure?
  • Do advisers help deals across the line, or increase the probability of deals being abandoned?
  • What can acquirers and targets do to increase the chances of successful deal completion?
