David Braun to Lead AMA’s Course on M&A in New York City May 15-17

Learn what can make or break a deal

I’m excited to be leading the American Management Association’s Course on Mergers & Acquisitions on May 15-17 in New York. I have been teaching this course for 26 years (since 1993) and it is a comprehensive, three-day course designed especially for CEOs, CFOs, owners, and other senior-level executives looking to take their company’s growth to the next level.

Too often M&A is broken into pieces, leaving leaders with an incomplete understanding of the process. At the AMA’s Course on M&A you will receive a holistic perspective of the entire M&A process, highlighting the crucial elements that can make or break a deal. If you’re interested in developing and implementing a successful M&A strategy, I encourage you to attend. I will be joined by Chris Hagan, a top M&A lawyer at Perkins Coie who will be leading the tax and legal sections.

One of the things that makes the course so valuable is that participants have the opportunity not only to learn from M&A professionals and subject matter experts, but also from each other through hands-on activities and a case study.

This course will cover

  • The rationale for diversification strategies
  • Organizing the mergers and acquisitions function
  • The search, screening and evaluation process
  • Financial analysis
  • Accounting, antitrust, tax and legal aspects
  • Negotiating techniques
  • Analyzing the acquisition contract
  • Conducting due diligence
  • And more!

You can learn more about and register for the AMA’s Course on M&A on their website. I hope to see you on May 15 in New York!
