2019 Leadership in Corporate Divestitures and Acquisitions

New York, NY - Nov 20, 2019

Overview

Today’s marketplace is rife with opportunities for mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, but challenges brought on by uncertain political, economic, and regulatory climates can complicate even the most routine transaction. Even after a deal is complete, organizations must face potential conflict from corporate governance differences and company culture clashes. The specter of activist investing and hostile takeovers further complicates modern deal-making. 

Argyle, in collaboration CFO Publishing and our CFO Advisory Board Influencers, has designed an agenda for the modern deal-maker in the M&A, finance, HR and legal fields so that you may walk away with actionable insights to close out transactions with strength. 

By attending this forum you will better understand: 

  • Predictions on how political, regulatory and economic conditions will impact deal activity in 2020 
  • How the skill set of the modern day deal-maker is continuing to evolve 
  • How to leverage technology to improve deal identification and execution 
  • Best success metrics for acquisitions 
  • How to analyze strategies and best practices for expediting the close process
