On January 6, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. EST, Morrison & Foerster Partners James Tanenbaum and Anna Pinedo will lead a PLI webcast entitled "Financings in Close Proximity to Acquisitions." Often, public companies would like to raise capital in connection with a proposed acquisition. Depending upon the significance of the acquisition, its probability, and the timing of various announcements, the company and its advisers may face a number of challenges in devising a capital-raising plan. Topics will include:

  • Materiality of acquisitions;
  • Assessing probability of an acquisition;
  • When should an effective shelf registration become subject to black out;
  • Conducting a private offering and wall-crossing investors;
  • Nasdaq shareholder vote issues;
  • Effecting a 144A-qualifying offering to QIBs; and,
  • Confidentially marketed public offerings.

PLI will provide CLE credit.
