In 2017, the Institute for International Business Law of the University of Münster, in cooperation with JurGrad gGmbH, is offering the M&A certificate course for the 14th time. The course provides the basics for successfully performing M&A transactions. It is primarily aimed at new entrants and professionals with up to three years of professional experience in all areas of M&A practice. But even participants who already have experience with M&A transactions can deepen their knowledge in individual areas. Our practice lecturers are active in leading law firms and management consultants specialising in M&A and explain the actual, legal and economic basis of the company’s purchase in both theoretical and at the highest level in practical terms. The course focuses on the topics of corporate valuation, tax planning, due diligence, financing and company purchase agreement. Particular attention is also paid to the area of public takeover law: in this context, takeover bids, forced exclusion and delisting are presented in Germany. The Distressed M&A area is another focus of the course in order to shed light on the special features of the company’s purchase from insolvency, which is very common in practice. The topic of management participation rounds off the program of the course.
Prof. Dr. Alexander Götz gives a lecture on “Managers in M&A Transactions”.
