M&A Negotiation

  • Thursday June 27th, 9:20 AM – 10:20 AM

    This session will discuss the seven key drivers of value in a medtech company and how they impact merger negotiations. Attendees will get an overview of factors that acquirers consider in M&A transactions and have an opportunity to ask questions to one of the leading medtech bankers and investors.

    As it becomes more and more difficult to raise significant funding to advance therapeutics, many companies have adopted M&A as a more feasible exit strategy than reaching commercialization. This has only gotten stronger with the emergence of big pharma as a leading player in venture and early stage funding. On the other side, successful companies are embracing new valuation models from investors centered on multiple pipelines and tangible short-term revenue. In a moribund sector, however, companies on both sides of the table must tread softly as to avoid terms that may promise long-term promise, but short-term demise. This workshop will explore the intricacies in reaching M&A compromise, specifically:

    • Placating aggressive suitors
    • Balancing short-term satisfaction with long-term loyalty
    • Mollifying early-round investors
    • Proper acquisition valuation before and after commercialization
    • Diversifying a pipeline and portfolio
    • Licensing and strategic partnership vs. M&A
