Mergers and Acquisitions in Consumer Internet


About This Session

I would like to demystify mergers and acquisitions, specifically in the web/consumer internet space. Proposed Agenda 1. What are companies in the consumer internet space looking for? 2. How do they find targets? 3. What could you do to become a target if you so desire? 4. Talent and product acquisitions versus others acquisitions. 5. To sell or not to sell? 6. What to watch out for? 7. Negotiations, Term Sheets - what should you care and what should you not care about? 8. Talent interviewing by acquirer, purchase price splits and emotional issues around employment 9. Avoiding diligence trip-ups - commercial contracts, open source, employment non-competes. 10. PR and transition of product. I was formerly with the Google Corporate finance and Corporate Development team (7 years) and did over 15 acquisitions. Would propose an hour with Q&A as we go along to make it interactive. (Unfortunately I can only attend on the 8th of October)
