The McLean Group; Whiteford, Taylor & Preston, and Bernstein Global Wealth Management invite you to a complimentary panel addressing key issues that will drive the deal market over the next 12 months, including:


  • Flexibility in deal terms, conditions and consideration
  • The role of Public Companies with more than $1 Trillion on their balance sheets.
  • The role of Private Equity – which closes more than 20% of US middle market deals annually – and its $1 Trillion in unspent capital.
  • Mitigating risks when you want a second bite of the apple.
  • Why Earnouts – the good, bad and ugly – will remain a key deal component.
  • Avoiding earnout traps while reaping benefits of higher valuations.
  • The benefits and drawbacks of stock and other non-cash consideration.
  • The trap of a "magic sale price."
  • Moving from a P&L to a portfolio.


Experienced panelists will address these and other important deal considerations in a seminar oriented toward C-level executives and owners.
