Cooperatives - A Valuable Tool for the M&A Lawyer’s Toolkit - Webcast

March 2017
The M&A Breakfast Series
Cooperatives - A Valuable Tool for the M&A Lawyer’s Toolkit
Co-sponsored by the M&A Subsection of the CBA Business Law Section  
Program Description:
Business succession planning and business conversion transactions often hinge on tax considerations and sale price, but many business clients also care about their employees, leaving a positive legacy, protecting the hard-earned good will of customers and the community, and leaving the business in the hands of capable management. A centuries old business model – the Cooperative – is experiencing a renaissance as baby-boomer business owners look to retire and sell, without undermining the seller’s values or legacy. Whether selling to employees, consumers, or multi-stakeholder owners, the cooperative entity form is robust, flexible, and optimizable to a wide variety of objectives. We will explore the hallmarks of a business conversion or M&A transaction for which a cooperative is a suitable or even optimal alternative. Dusting off the cooperative entity form, we will highlight the familiarity of the cooperative form to the M&A attorney. We will discuss the corporate, tax, governance, structural, financing, and other considerations of an M&A transaction to or involving the cooperative entity.
Don’t Forget:  The M&A Breakfast CLE Series is also available via live Internet webcast, direct to your desktop!
