Breakout II: Executive Compensation in M&A
Tuesday, November 10  |  3:30 p.m.
Andrew K. Strimaitis, Partner

Delivering an intact executive team or clearing the way for a new generation of leadership is often key to the success of a corporate transaction. In order to successfully navigate these transitions, companies and their boards need to be aware of the executive compensation related legal and tax issues that can and do arise in connection with mergers and acquisitions, and also appreciate the planning opportunities that may be available to minimize those issues. This session will provide an overview of the issues that are likely to arise, alternatives available to address those issues and best practices to consider from pre-transaction planning through post-closing integration.

Breakout I: Succession Planning & Talent Preservation in an M&A Environment
Wednesday, November 11  |  9:15 a.m.
Donald L. Norman, Jr., Partner

Preserving key talent is critical objective during M&A efforts since it preserves strategic capability while stabilizing the business and maximizing the value of the deal.  In spite of its importance, unfortunately not all banks (both buyers and sellers) are successful in this area.  This breakout session provides best practices for successful succession planning and retention efforts in advance of, and during, the M&A process which can be utilized to ensure the long-term, sustained success of the resulting entity.
