Session 7: Acquisition financing | Antitrust law and investment control
Financing the purchase price through equity and debt capital is another key element of corporate acquisitions. The availability of debt capital and the flexibility of the players in structuring the financing often determine the success or failure of a transaction. This unit will first present various acquisition financing structures for corporate acquisitions by private equity sponsors and strategists. The speaker then explains the typical structural elements of acquisition financing. Finally, he will provide an overview of the timing of an acquisition financing, the individual components of the financing documentation and typical risk distribution and protection mechanisms in favor of borrowers and lenders.
