Webinar Replay: Corporate Dealmaking – Increasing Shareholder Value Through Trade Sales, Spin-offs and Carve Outs

Featuring an Expert Panel and Ben Collins of Intralinks

The need to review corporate assets to determine what structure would be of greatest benefit for all stakeholders has never been more imperative

This past year may have been when M&A finally started roaring back after the financial crisis, but it was also a big year for other types of deals, including asset sales, spin-offs and carve outs. Indeed, some of the biggest deals of the year were spin-offs or trade sales, witness: Hewlett-Packard Co.'s plan to split in two, EBay's plans to spin off PayPal, Darden Restaurants' sale of its Red Lobster chain. Some of these transactions were done at the behest of investors and that trend is likely to continue, as Nelson Peltz eyes a potential proxy fight at DuPont if the company doesn't heed to his suggestion split into two.

For boards, the need to regularly review corporate assets to determine what structure would be of greatest benefit for all stakeholders has never been more imperative. Dashboards and other kind of tools can help M&A teams evaluate the best exit strategy for particular assets, as they perform the necessary in-house due diligence.

Watch the replay of the webcast, where The Deal's live video roundtable, with the help of a panel of seasoned corporate dealmakers, discussed what types of tools and methodologies help M&A teams evaluate the best exit strategy for particular assets, as they perform the necessary in-house due diligence.
