Westlaw Japan holds the first Premium Online Seminar
Seminar jointly hosted by Anderson Mōri & Tomotsune & Westlaw Japan

“Legal Strategy for Carve-out M&A”

Lecturer: Shigeki Tatsuno, Lawyer, Anderson Mōri & Tomotsune

Westlaw Japan K.K. (Minato-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director Yong Son Bang) will jointly host its first premium online seminar on “Legal Strategy for Carve-out M&A” with Anderson Mōri & Tomotsune on May 19th, Tuesday.
In the global economy with increasing uncertainty, further strengthening businesses with strengths based on “selection and concentration”, expanding the revenue base, and replacing business portfolios for those are becoming increasingly pressing issues for every company. Carve-out M&A, which is conducted by buying and selling certain businesses of a company, is used as an effective approach for replacing such business portfolios. However, this is not the only case where carve-out M&A is used, but it is also used in a variety of situations such as when establishing carve-up start up, cutting out seeds that are expected to be commercialized in the future and carrying out incubation as a joint business with other partners, creating a joint venture with strengths by cutting out and integrating each business with partners, and needing to separate some businesses due to reasons involving competition law.
From a legal point of view, carve-out M&A requires to consider matters while keeping an eye on the numerous and difficult legal issues in addition to those with regular M&A. For example, a type of structure to be used, stand-alone issues, blocking potential debt, a way to inherit workers and a way of representations and warranties need to be considered. Moreover, without a clear understanding of the technical structure and the nature of the contract structure and contract clauses, carve-out M&A cannot be conducted effectively.
In this seminar, an instructor who have handled many carve-out M&A, will provide in-depth explanations on legal points that are truly important and necessary to understand conducting carve-out M&A.
