San Francisco, California

Cleary Gottlieb partner Chris Moore participated in the SF Transaction Advisors Institute March 2024.

Chris spoke on the panel, “Developing M&A Targets,” which discussed the following topics:

  • What landmines should be avoided when contacting a target and negotiating an NDA/confidential information exchange?
  • How can Indications of Interest (IOIs) and Letters of Intent (LOIs) be crafted to be protective and also competitive?
  • What is the current market norm for exclusivity periods and “go shop” provisions?
  • Are there underappreciated risks in coordinating agreements and methods for avoiding standstills?
  • How early do you assess—and discuss with the target—the degree of closing difficulty?
