On a regular basis the financial press reports a variety of corporate restructurings, including mergers, acquisitions, divestments, and hostile takeovers. All too often, these efforts do not achieve the results that were intended, often because the high-level goal of “making the deal” became disengaged from the financial and operational reality.

In this webinar we will review the differences between corporate and operational restructuring, types of business combinations, going private, hostile takeovers, defenses against hostile takeovers, and corporate divestments. We will also review actual restructuring cases that were not successful and discuss potential reasons.
