Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Tatjana Paterno will co-present at the upcoming Strafford webinar titled, “Private Company M&A: 2021 ABA Deal Points Study” held on May 25, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. EDT. Tatjana and Jessica Pearlman, Partner at K&L Gates, will be speaking on the PrivateCompany Mergers & Acquisition Deal Points Study.

The ABA’s 2021 survey of private company M&A deal terms was based on publicly available acquisition agreements for transactions for which agreements were executed in 2020 and the first quarter of 2021 and that involved private targets being acquired by public companies. It reveals some interesting trends in M&A and provides a road map for what is “market” with regard to various provisions in acquisition documents.

The panel will examine the results of ABA’s 2021 survey of private company M&A deal terms. The discussion will include financial provisions, prevailing qualifiers that pop up throughout purchase agreements, representations and warranties, indemnification provisions, reps and warranties insurance provisions, and more. The panelists will also discuss the dos and don’ts of how to use this and any other study.

They will review these and other important issues:

  • What deal sizes and industries are represented in the deal points study?
  • What are the most significant trends identified in the study?
  • How can counsel apply different aspects of the study in negotiating and drafting M&A deal terms?
