Join us for the cross-border webinar event to discuss M&A trend landscape in Asia

The significance of merger and acquisition (M&A) deal volumes in Asia is increasing, and the region's share of the worldwide M&A pie keeps growing.

 In step with this growth, deals are becoming increasingly complex and challenging as prospective investors in the region are expected to (i) evaluate businesses which operate cross-regionally, (ii) assess the potential benefits and synergies arising from M&A transactions and (iii) put in place a solid business plan to lead the post-M&A group to success in a market that is rapidly evolving.

 In this seminar LPA-CGR avocats, Mazars and Havas - three professional firms with extensive experience in Asia - have teamed up for this event to share their knowledge of M&A in Asia.  They will, in particular, address the following issues:

 • identifying and assessing worthy investment targets

 • discovering the commercial and compliance strengths and weaknesses of targets

 • defining the appropriate pricing structure for the deal

 • key points to consider when negotiating with local partners

 • protecting investor interests through appropriate legal documentation

 • planning for the post-M&A business’ continuity and success

 LPA and Mazars are respectively a law and a professional services firm with a long presence through offices in major locations in Asia. Havas is a worldwide communication and advertising agency, which considers the APAC region as strategic for its expansion through build up transactions.

Drawing from the real-life cases on which they advised, our speakers will help you understand the dos and don’ts and the path to success when undertaking M&A deals in Asia.
