While the onset of the pandemic froze the M&A markets, the brief immunity from unsolicited and hostile acquisition interest has long worn off. The level of unsolicited inquiries, both friendly and contentious, has grown steadily since the depths of the pandemic, contributing to escalating public hostile activity as we enter 2021.
Representatives from Sidley and Qatalyst will discuss:
- U.S. M&A outlook for 2021
- The current state of the unsolicited and hostile M&A market
- The intersection with traditional shareholder activism
- Recommendations to navigate this dynamic environment
