Baker McKenzie M&A Forum 2017 - Creating value from carve-outs


Baker McKenzie, Vasagatan 7, Stockholm
For successful players in a global competitive market, disposing of non-strategic operations is just as important as strategic acquisitions. At the Baker McKenzie M&A Forum we will look at carve-out deals in an international setting and discuss the key elements for successful preparation and implementation. We will also present a recent case: Emerson Electric’s USD 4 billion carve-out and sale of its Network Power business. Following the M&A Forum, we are delighted to invite you to Kings of Tennis and a buffet dinner at Stockholm Waterfront.

Jannan Crozier, and Richard Needham, Baker McKenzie London 15.45-16.10 How carve-outs fit into overall deal structure? Why does the carve-out plan dictate the structure of the overall deal?
