About the course

To help organisations structure winning deals, the 4-day interactive programme aims to provide participants a practical, end-to-end understanding of the whole merger and acquisition (M&A) value chain. Through a series of real local and Western case studies and small group discussions, participants will explore the reasons and motivations for M&A, and examine the various strategic considerations including business plan, valuation, deal structuring, financing, negotiation and implementation issues associated with M&A. Post-merger integration and cross border acquisitions will also be discussed.

Key Benefits

At the end of the course, participants are expected to gain an understanding of:

  • The role of M&A as a legitimate activity in any entity’s corporate strategy and growth policy
  • The processes involved in M&A, including target identification, due diligence, negotiation, and implementation
  • Common tools and techniques in valuation including estimation of synergy and determination of premium
  • Deal structuring, including method of payments
  • Specific issues in corporate restructuring, leverage buyouts, private equity, and cross border acquisitions

Programme Structure

The 4-day programme will be staggered over 2 weeks (2 days per week) to minimise disruption from work and to allow more time for pre-reading and case analysis.

Pre-course reading materials will be provided to help you get up to speed so you can participate actively and benefit more from the programme.
