This course leads students through an in-depth analysis of the M&A process and the contracts applicable to selling a private company. Students who complete the course will become familiar with how to conduct a sale process, learn the purposes of due diligence, analyze alternative structures for the transaction, and gain practice with negotiating and drafting key provisions of acquisition-related agreements. Grades will be based on three to four out-of-class written exercises, subject to adjustment of up to one grading unit (e.g., B to B+ or B-) for class participation, including participation in in-class exercises. There will be no final exam.
