About the event:
How are corporate deals affected in a time of pandemic? In this session Professor Guhan Subramanian will discuss several recent Merger and Acquisition (M&A) deals that are “broken” due to the COVID-19 crisis. These are deals that were signed in January or February 2020, before the crisis hit in full force; by March/April, it became clear that the negotiated price was far higher than the value of the company. Subramanian will describe the typical way that the buyer’s exit rights are structured, with case studies such as Sycamore’s acquisition of L Brands and Simon Property’s acquisition of Taubman Centers.
